“Christopher is a unique human being and a real collaborator. His enthusiasm is infectious and that’s what attracted me into working with him on this project. I wanted to convey the idea of two people who are passionately in love with each other, and go off on a dirty weekend. It’s that moment in a relationship where all you are thinking about is each other, and all you want is to be with each other.”STEVE MCQUEEN, FILM DIRECTOR
The campaign will launch globally in April 2016 and will feature on myriad platforms including outdoor and print advertising, Burberry.com, Facebook,YouTube, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Polyvore, Sumally, SinaWeibo, Douban,Youku andWeChat.FILM CRAFTSMANSHIP
“The film was shot on 70mm film. As there are only roughly six of these cameras in existence in the world, this was a unique proposition.What I wanted to engage with was a special, sensual moment in time for these two lovers, which was intimate but in actuality was epic.”STEVE MCQUEEN, FILM DIRECTOR THE MUSIC
Titled‘I Won’t Complain’, the soundtrack is by British singer- songwriter and Mercury Music prize-winner Benjamin Clementine.
A close member of the Burberry family, Benjamin has performed at both the Burberry runway shows in London and the Burberry ‘London in Los Angeles’ event in April 2015.THE FRAGRANCE
