That Thing We Do

We’re film-makers but also makers of documentaries, videos, commercials, TV programmes, web-series; to mention a few. We’re most comfortable calling all these things Branded Content, and we draw from three very different palettes, blending them (or not) depending on how to best hook your audience.

Documentary

Any Brand, Any Market

Whether about a person, a product, or a brand sometimes a story just needs to be told. Let it breathe, sculpt it and explore it with oodles of research, eyewitnesses and experts. Like a nice walk in the country, it can ramble, conclude or just inspire.

Mechanism

Short and Long Format

Hidden cameras, jeopardy, who’s gonna win, "wow! I never saw that coming," "that's exciting/scintillating/scary/funny" Like any good joke this palette needs a clear setup and punch-line.

Gloss

Wag Included

Sometimes all you need is a great camera, some big lights, a touch of makeup or a subject matter that is just "wow". Like a plate of sushi it should be presented in it’s most naked and purist form with subtleties to enhance.

Why Choose Us?

A perfectly reasonable question to ask

We Know Our Craft

Every time we start a new production it's like a fresh new day, and just like each day, we approach every opportunity with genuine empathy, patience, openness and passion. In a media landscape where customers are overloaded with content clutter, we deliver the mix that offers the maximum result. For people and for brands, we make stories worth telling. Our clients say it shows - throw us a bone - we’ll prove it!

We Do Not Bait & Switch

A group of idealists, rockers, dreamers, specialists, thinkers and makers we want to shorten the distance from what we do to you. Not only does this approach save you the cost of hordes of agency folk chalking-up unnecessary time on your bill, it enables us to get deeper into your message, we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy the process too; after all who doesn’t like making things - we do, everyday!

We Sweat The Details

It’s less of a sweat when you’ve got the processes, experience and team all in one place. The more planning and thinking that goes into a project the better the end product. After 200+ projects, we’ve created a goof-proof process to take care of all the details - so that you get predictably remarkable results every time, combine that with our make-it-better approach and you’ve got a lean-mean-storytelling-dream-team.

Steady As She Goes

We remember when people gave you a strange look for suggesting online content would overtake broadcast, when you were asked to leave the party if you predicted Digital Ad spend would surpass broadcast TV by 2017 and that brands would want to own their own content. We’ve survived that transient time by staying hungry; we’ve also managed to enjoy the journey along the way.

How we bark up that tree

Doing That Thing We Do

Any Brand, Any Market

Our first port-of-call is a place where we understand what you want and to what ambition. Folks come to us in a variety of stages of preparedness; sometimes with a board, maybe a script, often with a link of something they’ve seen online; sometimes from our portfolio. But often the words “we need a film" is enough for us to kick-off. Not every idea is a bolt of lightning; but we also know the heavier the storm the more likely we'll get struck.  

The Magic Sauce

We ponder platforms, we brainstorm ideas (alot), we revisit our existing portfolio and we visit places for inspiration. Sometimes a brisk coffee or a trip to the gym spawns a brain-wave. We do this until we think we’ve got something shiny and unique. Is it on budget? Nope! - lets talk about it anyway. When ambition and idea are aligned we build the methodology that’ll send your content into online orbit.

Anchor The Brand Truths

We love what we do and we still get excited about seeing the end-product come together. Throughout our thorough and well trodden process we take the project to delivery never far from your reach. Of course we lay out the journey from the outset and arrive at the destination close to where we planned; a film that weaves a narrative for your brand or product. We’re happy, you’re happy. Lets grab a beverage!

The Alpha Dogs

Who's in The Pack?

James Rotheram

Founder

James is a firm believer in the power of the idea. His best idea came when walking his dog – Ringo The Dingo (now Hurrah’s mascot). The big idea was that there was a market for a company that was committed to making the very best Branded Content based in Asia with a regional (and now global) view.

In 2008 James took the leap and founded Hurrah in the midst of the global financial crisis, in a niche and very competitive industry, nearly ten years later he’s still doing it. Today Hurrah services clients throughout the world from its headquarters in Singapore working with some of the biggest brands and most ambitious agencies.

James can still be found on set; more frequently though he can be found sipping coffee at one of theminutelist’s participating venues preparing for the “next,” and meeting people who want to know about Hurrah.

With 20+ years of experience in the industry every aspect still has the power to excite him.

Megan Barker

Head of Production / Director & Producer

Megan has over 10 years of experience making films and has been performing in musicals and concerts since her tiny fingers learned how to hold a mic. Megan has a double degree in Film Production and Theatre Studies from the University of Notre Dame and has been making super content with Hurrah since 2014. Her performance background gives her a deep understanding of how to put on a great show, whether it be on stage or on screen.

Lights, camera, confetti, action! When Megan is on stage or on set, this is where the magic happens. Megan is a masterful multi tasker that can manage a big crew and cast as well as the many different elements of a film at the same time and she can command an arena sized audience with her powerful vocals and rousing dance moves.

If you can’t find Megan, she’s probably singing in a hot air balloon 50 feet off the ground, performing on a golden stage with dinosaurs as back up dancers or taking her boat out for a Sunday sail.

Haf Rahman

Head of Post Productions / Senior Editor

Haf Rahman is our very own award winning editor, and he is Head of Post Productions at Hurrah. Haf is a mastermind of the short film and is an expert at conceptualizing and crafting cool stories.

Haf graduated from LASALLE College of the arts in 2009 with a Diploma in Film Studies and in 2013 he won the award for Best Video Editor at Mediacorp Suria’s Pesta Perdana award show.

Aswini R

Junior Producer

Wini is the new kid on the block at Hurrah, joining us as a Junior Producer earlier this year. We knew straight away that she would fit right in, she’s confident, she’s cool and she knows how to bring a production to life. She starts from the bottom and works her way to the top, she is determined and does not give up easily because she is truly passionate about her work.

Wini believes that watching films are a way to escape the troubles of this unforgiving life. To be a part of a world you could only dream of. She graduated with a Diploma in Digital Film and Television from Temasek Polytechnic in 2016 with her final year film “Soul 37” screened at the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner 2016.

Wini has a tendency to burst into song anytime of day, regardless of her tone deafness.

Yen

Editor / DJ Wannabee

Meet ¥, born in the year of the interwebz. Yen is our automatic go-to for knowing the latest music and the hottest spots in town and always knows what cool new shows and films you just have to watch.

Need a funky new track for your next film? Yen knows how to spin the decks.

Yen loves making films because it is her way to craft stories with no rules or restrictions. She graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a Major in Post Production and a Minor in Production Design. In 2015 her short film entitled “Grandma” was screened at the European Union Film Fest and in 2016 she won the best production design award for her Thesis Film “Ave Maria”.

You will never find Yen in one spot. One day she will be playing with snow in a park in Reykjavik, the next she’s flying over Phuket in a parasail and flooding your Instagram timeline with her killer photos.
Basically, Yen is so cool, it hurts.

Thaïs Breton

Editor

Thaïs, our in-house French woman was born in Reunion Island, grew up in Singapore and is often spotted in France vagabonding from mountain to forests in a van.

She graduated with a BA in film from LASALLE in 2014, specialising in directing for documentaries and post production. To this occasion, she also pocketed the McNally award for Excellence in the Arts awarded to the best student of each year’s graduating cohort. (And she is very very humble about it. So humble. You’ll love it.)

Thaïs has been working actively as a conceptual videographer with clients from all over the world, bringing her cinematographic skills and editing quirks to create bold and unique videos.

An avid green activist, Thaïs is trying to turn everyone into a zero waste lifestyler, so hide your plastic bags before you pay us a visit.

Alistair Harding

Producer, Director & Writer

After working with Hurrah for a number of years, Alistair isn’t with Hurrah! 100% of the time anymore, but he’s still a member of the extended family as he works closely with the team on a range of different projects.

After a number of years running his own publishing and branding agencies, Alistair brought that experience to Hurrah! as a writer, producer and director for both TV and the commercial world and now has a list of credits for clients such as National Geographic, History Channel, Microsoft, Cebu Pacific, UD Trucks and Cetaphil.

For Alistair, the art of story-telling is at the core of his film-making philosophy. Be it a brand’s story or a compelling documentary narrative, his approach is always to find that compelling narrative that will resonate with viewers. While he works mostly with Hurrah! these days as a Writer/Director, in his own work he is also a writer, photographer and documentary film-maker.

Russell Morton

Director of Photography

He saw it first

Russell Adam Morton is an artist and filmmaker. He is a graduate from The Puttnam School of Film, Lasalle College of the Arts (2010) and obtained an MA in Fine Arts from Camberwell College of the Arts, UAL (2012).

His films have been part of the Athens Video Art Festival 2012 and participated in several group shows in London. His film, “The Silent Dialogue of All Artworks” was screened at the National Museum of Singapore’s 10th Singapore Short Cuts, The Substation’s 4th Experimental Film Forum and the Thai Short Film & Video Festival 2014. The film later went on to win Best Experimental Film at the 5th Singapore ShortFilm Awards. His second film, Forest of Copper Columns, has won the Cinematic Achievement Award at the Thessaloniki Short Film Festival 2016 and has been selected at several festivals in 2016 including the Thai Short Film & Video Festival, Jogja Netpac Asian Film Festival and Cine Pobre Film Festival.

Who's A Good Boy Then

What Awesome Clients Say

Richard Hol
Executive Creative Director

You have brought to life what we had in mind before we started the project; to create something that feels authentic, has loads of energy and is a disruptive break with the conservative category… I always strive to make the ‘director’s cut’ the one that goes on air. As far as I’m concerned, you’ve produced our director’s cut.

Gaelle Dami
Marketing Director

We have now completed our 3rd corporate movie with Hurrah and the result is, again, outstanding! The Hurrah! team are a pleasure to work with… thoughtful, creative, fun and professional… fantastic story tellers. They will take everything it needs and beyond, to outperform and deliver unique films, in actually very diverse styles when necessary.

Simon Fransson
Marketing Strategy

We’ve worked with Hurrah since 2011 and made over 30 films with them throughout the region and beyond. What always stands out is the style and narrative which is now becoming a big part of the UD Trucks brand. For the recent launch of our new truck – the Croner – Hurrah was instrumental in setting the tone for the fantastic launch film. It’s always a pleasure working with Hurrah being positive, pragmatic; you get Bite with their Bark.
