London 2012; before, during and after

Cast your mind back a few months, to the early summer.

The feeling on the street was that London 2012 was to be ‘a big deal.’ We were told to prepare; The world will be watching! This was greeted with an almost tangible sense of foreboding and anxiety.

Keen to capture this sentiment, and equally keen to test out the studio’s new Canon C300, some of the MB team hit the streets. They were drawn to London’s skyline, and in particular a building that seemed to symbolize London’s nervous energy: the incredibly menacing, skyline-piercing structure that is the Shard.

This resulting short film is a reflection on living through the summer of London 2012.
