This is Birmingham

In May of this year Blue Gecko Studios were commissioned by Cogent Elliott and Marketing Birmingham to shoot a 30 second commercial for Birmingham with accompanying still photography for wider campaign uses.

The aim of the film is to showcase Birmingham and everything it has to offer in tourism and culture in 30 seconds. The visual trick in itself has been visited by others previously to great effect but applying the technique to one city is fresh and really makes Birmingham look individual and distinctive. The ad has been broadcast as part of the ICC Champions Trophy beamed to cricket fans all over the world. The estimated reach being as high as 1 billion viewers.

The ad stars Chelsea Killarney of Alan Sharman Agency, who over 5 days / 60 hours filming; walked more than 7km across 43 locations, had 35 costume changes, and wore 10 different pairs of shoes.
