Fire & Wild

Project Overview



Fire & Wild provided a unique opportunity for Big Blue Whale to slow things down and get back in touch with our quiet side. The brief was to create a short film to promote immersive outdoor dining experiences.

Through extensive communication with the client a shot list was compiled that told the brand’s story with the aim of creating a sense of mystery and intrigue encouraging viewers to click through to the site and discover more.

For production there were two locations at either ends of the country. The first was in the Lake District where we filmed panoramic mountain shots, canoeing, trout fishing and foraging in the woods. The second shoot was in an ancient oak woodland down in East Sussex. This is where we filmed the feast, an extravaganza of fire-cooked food, fine wines and wild cocktails.

With the edit we did away with our usual arsenal of effects and transitions and concentrated our efforts on creating a visually stunning short film that tells the Fire & Wild story. The addition of music created by Father helped elevate the final film.


Fire and Wild has generated a lot of buzz with articles being featured in the Guardian amongst other publications. The film has helped the brand tell their exceptional story and gives potential customers the opportunity to get a taste of the experience before booking tickets.

From start to finish the project was skillfully executed. The Big Blue Whale team really listened to the brief, understood the vision and went on to create something very special. The end product has exceeded all expectations and we now have an excellent promotional video with which to market the brand. The feedback so far has been fantastic!
