Dark Energy director Ben Jones has shot 2 TVC’s (60sec and a 200sec) for Matalan as part of their Christmas campaign to raise money for Alder Hey Children’s Charity.  The films soundtrack is a soulful interpretation, by Pixie Lott, of the classic Isley Brothers/Housemartins song ‘ Caravan of Love’.   The films are a visual interpretation of the classic children’s mix and match books and see’s Pixie Lott star alongside a cast of children and adults of all ages as they are literally mixed and matched throughout. The films were shot at Black Island Studios, edited at Marshall Street and then 4 weeks of post-production through Absolute.  Alder Hey is supported by The Alder Hey Children’s Charity, which was launched in 2012. The Alder Hey Children’s Charity recently embarked on a major Appeal to support the building of the new hospital.
