BARBARA

Comedy talents Ben Mallaby and Rachel Stubbings have made a number of short films together over the years, including the definitive guide to actor showreels.

BARBARA represents the duo’s first foray into commercials, with a focus on relatable scripts and the odd technical flourish for good measure.

"The Ceremony"
A minister's passion for Bluewater shopping centre takes over at a crucial moment in this amusing ad. Shot with a knowing sense of humour by directing duo BARBARA, the film sees a wedding ceremony interrupted by discussion of new trainers, fantastic food, and a gospel-style celebration of, er, John Lewis. The bride and groom might've preferred to keep their vows more traditional, but at least that's the honeymoon destination sorted.
