Retirement is changing, as is the meaning of the word.

We teamed up with content agency Redwood to produce a series of films exploring the different ways people are now choosing to spend their twilight years.

We’re now calling it #Life2

The Brief

We were tasked with creating four films – The first, LIFE2: Redefining Retirement, would provide an overview from industry experts, introducing retirees who we would then follow up with three individual case studies exploring their personal journey through life after retirement.

The Journey

The shoot lasted five days, covering the majority of the south of England (with a brief trip into Wales) and taking in locations as varied as an 80 meter deep diving pool to a motorbike greasy spoon café.

We worked tirelessly to capture the essence of what makes these retirees tick - and what it is they love about their new lease of life. Shooting predominantly handheld in slow motion to infuse the films with a sense of energy whilst retaining our cinematic aesthetic, we strived to capture the passion that drives them all forward.
