Reuben Feels… The Carnival of Knowledge

Reuben Feels are thrilled to announce that they are back on the road with the delightfully peculiar Hendrick’s Carnival of Knowledge. Our quest to fuel the nation’s inquisitive minds began at the magnificent estate of Pylewell Park to contribute to The Curious Arts Festival - a marvelous celebration of literature and the arts.

Next we’re heading to Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the homeland of Hendrick’s gin for four days of intellectual sustenance and libatory stimulation. Our final stop will be the beautiful Festival No. 6 in Portmeirion.

Reuben Feels… proud of Lucy Tcherniak once again!

Reuben Feels’ Creative Board member Lucy Tcherniak once again shows off her chops as a beacon of creation, this time directing the powerful video for Hudson Taylor’s new single, ‘Weapons’.

The beautifully-shot video, which portrays rising tensions in a prison, follows an equally pretty promo for electronics giant Philips’ new Wi-fi controlled lights, which you can also peruse below.

From all of us here at RF HQ – well done Ms. Tcherniak.

Reuben Feels… the luck of the Irish

We were delighted to recently discover that our work on ‘Shenanigans’ at Bestival has received over 100,000 views on YouTube.

The project, our first collaboration with Carat Sponsorship and Tourism Ireland, proved popular with festival attendees, with over 1400 audience members having a craic-filled, eclectic and experience incorporating Irish charm and wit and showcasing the best that Dublin and Belfast have to offer.

The press also got stuck in, with the NME calling it one of the “Top 5 Things everyone is talking about at Bestival”, and both the Metro and the Guardian placing in their “Top 10 Moments at Bestival”.

We must admit: being on a list with Snoop Dogg and Elton John does give us a little tingly feeling.

If you’d like to see a longer cut of the video and some shiny photos, keep reading…

Reuben Feels… like reviewing 2013 (Joy to the world!)

Well here we all are, another year under our burgeoning festive belts, and what a tremendous one it was. We’ve met some astonishing creators, collaborators and organisations in the last 12 months, and we wanted to share some of our highlights with you all.

We began the year with a bang, working with Foam London for Sony Music recording a Binaural App at Sony’s HQ to promote Hurts’ sophomore album ‘Exile’. An interactive story created in collaboration with the brilliant Francesca Gardiner. In an extension of the same narrative we bought the cult to life, indoctrinating fans and journalists at Hurt’s Album Launch Party.

Then we skipped over to California to make an immersive story for Symantec (for the second time) at their global HQ, consulting with the (real) FBI Cyber-Crimes unit, and the Cybersecurity Advisor to the White House shortly afterwards, Issie nipped to Buenos Aires on the invitation of Mondolez and Contagious to talk about stories (and win some dance competitions). And then it was April… Cue smug, exhausted, exhalation.

Reuben Feels… loves ‘Ruby’

Reuben Feels cohort and all-round lovely lady Emma Allen is a ‘Staff Pick’ on Vimeo today – and here’s why. Using nothing but Face Paint and a camera, and a LOT of time, she tells a beautiful story of death and rebirth. You may have seen Emma’s work at a Reuben Feels performance before – she’s worked with us  launching Capcom’s Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City last year, as well as our recent ‘Sensory Experience’ for ISES.

Emma’s wonderful video has been viewed over 150,000 times over the weekend, and for good reason. If you’d like to see her work up close and personal, she is exhibiting her work for the very first time this week at the Dalston Superstore.

Aren’t we proud?

Reuben Feels… like talking to the lovely Ted Dwane about his upcoming photography exhibition

He’s a member of our Creative Board, one fourth of the mega band Mumford and Sons, and increasingly he is gaining a reputation as a very talented professional photographer. Ted Dwane  took some time out of preparing for his first photography exhibition, titled A Show of Faces, to discuss all things making and playing.

The exhibition will take place at the London Newcastle Gallery, 28 Redchurch Street, London, from the 16th – 24th November.

We meet at his East London home. He’s standing at the polished cement island in the centre of his kitchen, surrounded by black containers full of curious smelling liquids. Strung up around the edges of the room are lengths of negatives and direct to paper images.

I recommend we start with some warm up questions, he agrees.  This is a man well versed at giving interviews…
