The Campaign

Sundae was Creative England’s retained agency and worked across the organisation’s entire portfolio of talent programmes, events, reports and thought leadership. 

Key topics include equality in the workplace, plus diversity and gender parity in filmmaking and across the creative industries.

We delivered communications for Creative England’s Live events – including Northern Lights (June 2016), CE Live Synthesise 2017 and a selection of the regional BE MORE events.

To amplify the reach of these events, we leveraged announcements including Creative England’s C50, which recognises the achievements of 50 of the most exciting, innovative and disruptive creative companies and individuals across film, games and digital media, and announced the findings of a Nesta report, which identified creative clusters across the UK, highlighting where the creative industries exist and why, plus profiling key companies in each region of the UK. 

Vital coverage was generated in Broadcast magazine, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, CNET, Marketing Week, Creative Review, PocketGamer, Sky News, Campaign, Develop, among many, and an ongoing profiling campaign for CEO and filmmaker Caroline Norbury generated coverage in Broadcast, Screen International, Radio 5 Live Daily and Huffington Post.

Other projects, among many, included the launch of Shortflix, a short film development partnership between Creative England, Sky Arts and the National Youth Theatre and Eagle Lab Flight, in partnership with Barclays, a creative technology accelerator with creative workshops and events, with lead stories in City A.M. and The Drum.

We also supported the profile of iFeatures, the company’s hugely successful feature film development programme, with a DPS in Screen International, and feature on Radio 5 Live.
