Sea of Thieves: The Quest for the Golden Bananas
Global Treasure Hunt : London & Berlin production
To launch the new multiplayer game "Sea Of Thieves," we worked with No Mimes Media and their client Microsoft, XBox, Rare Studios and Edelman UK to create "The Quest For The Golden Bananas."
A globe-spanning treasure hunt, "The Quest" challenged pirate crews to solve a series of fiendish riddles and uncover the hidden location of a valuable treasure. To do so, players were sent to hidden sites online and real-world locations to dig up the answers. In the end, one victorious crew snared the ultimate prize — $100,000 in real, gold-plated bananas. We produced the London and Berlin elements which placed clues at Piccadilly Circus and on the Oberbaum Bridge in Berlin. We also produced and directed the ‘making of the golden bananas’ films at Hatton Garden goldsmiths, Smith & Harris.

Dark Detour is a storycentral (Alison Norrington) and NoMimes Media (Steve Peters) Halloween horror anthology series told in real-time through social media and more. Happening every year in the days leading up to Halloween night, you’ll virtually travel in real-time with our hapless victims as they descend deeper and deeper into a place from which there seems no escape.

The Launch : Finding Your Voice
Communications & Oracy Educational Experience
Like us, do you believe it’s time to rethink the way students learn in our out-of-date education system? Are you frustrated by the lack of soft skills focus in our national curriculum? Is oracy a priority in your school development plan? At Finding your Voice, we are very excited to be introducing our state-of-the-art, cutting-edge verbal communications programme - one which seeks to revolutionise the way schools think about how their students learn best.
Our school package gives schools and colleges a low-cost, high-quality way of bringing oracy teaching and learning back to the forefront of their English or PSHE curriculum. Delivered over twelve chapters, students are taught everything from the art of a handshake to how to deliver presentations to large audiences under pressure. Finding your Voice is non-selective and ensures that every young person who journeys through the programme will become more confident, articulate and ultimately, employable. This is about giving every young person in the country the very best chances of success for the future, and when it matters most. Coming across well in the most pressurised of situations can be the difference between success and not, in some cases drastically shifting the trajectory of their career path.
