A different world

Thursday, May 21st, 2020 // worldmark

I got the reminder on my phone. My video interview with an Olympic Boblsed Silver Medalist was due to begin in 15 minutes, in Denver, Colorado. Normally I’d be having a nice little pre-interview chat with my subject, as the crew made those last minute tweaks to the lighting that have no discernible effect on […]

Fade up on a desolate RAF airfield near Ipswich. The sound of the black crows scattering into the sky plays in stark contrast to the decaying yet still majestic fighter jets, all lined up in a row on the tarmac, but going nowhere. The silence is broken by a convoy of vehicles. A low-loader carrying […]

Worldmark goes Welsh

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019 // worldmark

After celebrating the Chinese New Year with filming in Korea, we decided to take the saying ‘New Year, New Me’ seriously and set up a Welsh base for Worldmark Films! Worldmark Films Wales will concentrate on developing Operation Julie – a comedy-thriller telling the extraordinary true story of the undercover police operation that smashed one […]

Pyeongchang 2018 – Back in 2019

Friday, February 22nd, 2019 // worldmark

Exactly one year on from the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games, we went back to Korea to film the many legacies the Olympic Games is bringing to the Gangwon region. The shoot started well, when our camera kit and ‘personals’ actually arrived. (See our ‘Minus everything in PyeongChang’ describing in detail how our shoot back […]

Baking in Berlin

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 // worldmark

Berlin was the stage for another European Athletics Championships and we sent crew out there to film behind the scenes.  With the UK and Europe baking under the sun, temperatures on one day reached 38 degrees, pushing even the fittest athletes to the limit. Luckily we didn’t need to be as fit to film them! The […]

Blown away by Beijing

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 // worldmark

It’s pretty amazing when you think about it. A city making history by hosting both the Summer and the Winter Olympic Games. In the space of 14 years. Turning the iconic Water Cube venue from swimming…into curling. Or a Basketball Stadium into an Ice Hockey venue. Following hot on the heels of the hottest July […]

Sled Driver

Monday, April 9th, 2018 // worldmark

I folded my tray away, put my seat back in the upright position, and looked out of the window as the 787 Dreamliner positioned itself to land at Oakland Airport, California.             The SR-71, or Blackbird, or ‘Sled’ as it was affectionately known. Mach 3 (over 2,000 miles an hour […]

PyeongChang 2018

Monday, April 9th, 2018 // worldmark

It’s 5.30am, and we’re up in the mountains at Phoenix Park in PyeongChang, South Korea, where all the cool winter sports like the Half-pipe and Slope-style hang out. The sky is orange. It’s going to be a beautiful day. There’s just one problem. Well two actually. It’s –20 degrees, and there’s no getting away from […]

Friday, January 26th, 2018 // worldmark

Wordmark has delved into the wonderful world of YouTube and gaming to produce a 12 part series for the Olympic Channel called Gamers Vs. We had to track down exotic characters inhabiting this world like Razzbowski, As2piK, Ddotty, PapaDog, King Koon, NettyPlays and Tomohawk.

“Minus” Everything in PyeongChang

Monday, January 15th, 2018 // worldmark

Peter, our creative director, has recently got back from an eventful trip to PyeongChang, South Korea, where he was filming the preparations for the Winter Olympics. Here is his report. I’ve got packing a suitcase for a long haul shoot in Korea down to a fine art. Snow boots, thermals, gloves, three pairs of jeans, […]

Hot and Cold in PyeongChang

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 // worldmark

It may have been minus 10 on the slopes, but the welcome – and spicy Dak-Kalbi  – was warm as. It’s one year to go until PyeonChang 2018, the biggest Winter sports event on the planet, and I was lucky to be filming in the very heart of the Test events as a city gets […]
