Vincent Sheppard – corporate film
Wicker strollers and prams were one of Marshall’s development areas and although they were very popular in the beginning of the 20th century, they were also slow to produce and thus expensive. Furthermore, the rattan wicker would break now and again and wasn’t exactly a soft and comfortable material, especially for strollers. Marshall Burns Lloyd set out to create a weave which was not only stronger than rattan, but also looked better and had a much softer feel to it, to make the material very tactile. We had the pleasure of shooting and editing their production film that showed the whole manufacturing process, from loom to furniture. The film was partly shot on site in Indonesia and partly in Belgium.
