What Client’s Say
Kelloggs Special K ‘Collectively we are all extremely pleased with the stings, they were produced and serviced by Commercials Unlimited excellently and professionally despite the huge time and budget constraints. Luca Merli did a beautiful job directing them for us and I most certainly look forward to working with them all again.’
We had been given our brief from a new and important client (Western Union), and as an Agency were incredibly conscious of the need to impress. We presented the script to Commercials Unlimited, and then the budget. This was going to be a tricky commercial to say the least – involving Caribbean acrobats and a hectic Brixton location. Within hours of my first meeting with Commercials Unlimited, my mind was at ease. They had not only fully understood the direction I wanted this production to go in, but had grabbed hold of it with passion and enthusiasm. They took all the worry of short timescales, tight budget and logistical traumas, and presented me with a solution that was over and above our expectations. The shoot went incredibly well, with the outstanding crew working together to create a finished product that all parties were over the moon with. The communication between Agency / Crew and Client was flawless, and with this in mind we are already planning our next commercial with the same client, which I am looking forward to discussing with Luke and the team.'
Commercials Unlimited As a creative your job’s already over by the time it comes to shooting your prized piece of work. In theory. Of course in practice you’re more likely to pull your hair out, end up hoarse and put down a deposit on a new ulcer. With Commercials Unlimited I’m pleased to say that I ended up doing none of those things. The guys exuded a calm professionalism and confidence throughout the shoot and, without being fussy, were attentive and courteous both towards our people and the project itself. Budget, timings and details were tight throughout, and we’ll be talking with Commercials Unlimited again as soon as the opportunity presents.’ In the storyboard of course your pooch will do all sorts of wonderful things, performing like a dream every time. Then you get the night-before nerves, as you hope to God that the reality comes somewhere close to the vision in your mind. With Rob Payton directing, I’m delighted to say that our pooch followed the script to the letter. His experience is in the details, and his relaxed control is just the kind of touch that puts everyone – animals included – at ease. We got exactly what we asked for, and a director who was constantly keen to ensure we were happy. Delighted to recommend Rob, and delighted to work with him at any time."
STUART VERNEY - Creative Director - Inferno London. "Commercials Unlimited brought together a bespoke team of highly talented individuals to work their magic on a relatively small budget project with tight deadlines. I have been mighty impressed with the commitment, creativity and desire to go the extra mile to achieve a fantastic piece of film that redefines the Villa Holiday advertising genre that gives our client a fantastic brand response ad. I've never seen a happier client! These guys are a pleasure to work with - from initial treatments to final post. I look forward to the chance to work with them on the next campaign. Bravo!!!"
