22nd October 2012, London, UK – From British prime-ministers to the Bane of Batman’s life, Seesaw Media has worked with more iconic cinema characters than most and with Skyfall set to blow cinema goers away this week, the list keeps on growing.
Based in London, Seesaw Media are arguably the UK’s most successful product placement agency; in the last 12months alone their clients have appeared in over 20 high profile feature films including The Iron Lady, Midnight In Paris, The Dark Knight Rises and The Bourne Legacy, 14 of which have gone on to win a host of Oscars, Globes and Baftas.
However, what Darryl Collis, Director of Seesaw Media, is probably most proud of is the work they have done on Skyfall; “In the past we have helped create the looks for characters played by Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio etc. but with Bond being such a global phenomenon and it’s the 50th anniversary, it’s great to have been a part of Skyfall.”
Seesaw Media worked closely with the costume department, to provide outerwear by luxury fashion brand Belstaff for the latest Bond villain ‘Silva’ (Javier Bardem) and Bond Girl ‘Eve’ (Naomie Harris), both looks of which can be seen on the advertising for Skyfall.
It’s no wonder that working on this calibre of films – 6 of which have been Box office No.1s already in 2012 – that Seesaw has seen a 68% increase in enquires compared with the previous year.
“Clients value the national and international exposure that films deliver”, Darryl explains, “and due to our relationship with film studios built up over the last 10 years, brands come to us knowing we are able to help secure them exposure in the biggest and most talked about movies.”
Once Skyfall is released, it doesn’t seem to be quietening down for Darryl and the team at Seesaw, with clients appearing in a number of upcoming features including Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2, which is surely set to be another number 1 movie to add to their growing list.
