The Beat Is The Law The Beat Is The law

Expertly puts Sheffield back at the forefront of the great musical adventure John Robb - BBC
'Compelling viewing' O2O magazine

Following on from Made in Sheffield Eve Wood has dived straight back in to Sheffield music scene this time unearthing the story of the city from the mid 80's to the mid 90's.
It shows a city down on its luck as the Miner’s and the industrial north are crushed under Maggie Thatcher’s iron fist of right wing self-love. Out of the ashes rises a dispirited but energetic bunch of musicians using dead space in derelict buildings to create the next musical movement.
The film charts the makings of Pulp, Dance and Industrial Funk with interviews with Jarvis Cocker, Richard Hawley, Chakk, Moloko's Mark Brydon, FON and many, many others. It is funny, stirring and inspiring stuff. We shot some of the interviews.

Lots more info, video clips and a chance to buy the DVD at In the meantime check out the trailer.

Lines of Flight

Academic's are starting to think of better ways of presenting their work and are now starting to use visual methodology (!) as a tool. Line of Flight is a look, by the bods of York Uni's Management Department, at escapes from work using solo climbing as a focus.

We've shot and edited the film and are pretty pleased with the results. It's insightful with a little frisson of fear. Interviwees include Andy Popp, Andy Cave, Graham Hoey, Allan Austin and Professor Stephen Linstead. Click here for an excerpt.

Produced by Bigger Picture, shot and edited by Slackjaw.


More Bigger Picture work, this time editing a conference opening film. We were told to shake the delegates awake. Nothing like a dose of extreme sport to do the job.


A friend of our Mark last year slipped a disc, thought to be consequence of his job working as a sales and training director for Big Stone. To save him time behind the wheel we filmed him giving his Arc'teryx training seminar and now the strain's taken by Royal Mail. Mark just posting it out to client's and shops.
Because of the complexity of Arc'teryx's range there was quite a lot of graphical content and the result's actually look all right. Click here for an excerpt

Finally between the team we've also done filming for Berghaus, the BBC's Coast and Countryfile, the Epilepsy Foundation, Sheffield's Doc Fest, Posing Productions, Bison Grass Films and MiDAS
