New Compare the Market Advert: Heimlich

Once again, Painting Practice collaborated with Passion Pictures to make a brand new and exciting Compare the Market advert!

You’ll all recognise the influence here – Alexander and Sergei are having a lovely dinner together on the deck of a great ship when Alexander chokes on his food. Sergei comes to his rescue and they both end up at the tip of the deck, arms floating in the wind, Celine singing in the background…

Collide is out soon!

Collide, directed by Eran Creevy, will be out in American cinemas on the 24th of February!

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley, the film promises to be intense with incredible fast-speed vfx, explosions and car chases. Yet the story focuses on the love shared between the two main characters, despite all the dangers they have to face. Painting Practice was heavily involved in the production design and vfx of the film, with exciting previz, concept and set design work.

How far would you go for the one you love?
