An Englishman’s Guide To Modern Living: ‘The Cocktail Party'

December 13, 2018

Condé Nast Creative Studio works with Dark Energy's Ben Stevenson on an amusing short film for LG.

Welcome to the north London home of creative director Duncan Campbell, one half of creative agency Campbell-Rey, and artist and interior designer Luke Edward Hall. Guests lucky enough to receive an invitation to the pair’s annual cocktail soirée can expect a potent mash-up of German opera and hors d’oeuvres served on lettuce-ware china. The whole evening is made significantly easier with the help of smart and stylish LG SIGNATURE household electronic products. Remember to BYOC (Bring Your Own Coaster)!

The film is the second in the ‘An Englishman’s Guide to Modern Living’ series created by Condé Nast Creative Studio and directed by Ben Stevenson through Dark Energy. Stevenson notes: “It’s an evolution of last year’s film featuring Ashley Hicks. Whilst, the previous film was heavily influenced by Wes Anderson, this one has French New Wave running through it.”

A nod to Luke and Duncan’s ‘relaxed attitude to life’, the film follows the couple as they prepare for a ‘low key’ cocktail party.
