It all started when...
INTRASPECTRUM STUDIOS were commissioned to make STIHL's first UK TV commercial. Stihl wanted to show a real person using one of their new products in a real life situation. What better than to film the UK's top female ice sculptor - Anne-Marie Taberdo in her ice studio where she works at temperatures as low as -8 degrees Celcius.
Anne-Marie is one of the UK's top Ice sculptor's regularly competing in the World Ice Sculpting Championships and she uses Stihl Chainsaws extensively in her practice and she was a pleasure to work with on the TV commercial.
After the Commercial was cut, it was handed over to the awesomely talented composer Sophie Cotton to score. Sophie added a real touch of magic and created a beautifully epic score that complemented the visuals to create a truly beautiful TV commercial that was aired on prime time (7- 7:30pm) Channel 4 in the UK.
Directed and Produced by Jonathan Stow
Cinematography by the awesome Ewan Mulligan
Original Music by the wonderful Sophie Cotton
