We’re back with exciting news! Today we’re happy to introduce our new Director’s Rep Lola Bracegirdle-Black. For the past three years Lola had the position as Director’s Rep at UNIT9 FILMS London, where she looked after their Director’s roster. Lola is from the UK, grew up in the south of France and since then has lived in Buenos Aires and London.
Prepare yourself for an outer-worldly experience from director Mackenzie Sheppard, with his typical, eccentric flair: ‘The Awakening’ — the launch film of Hyundai’s latest EV line, follows an astronaut who discovers a new world — the new IONIQ 6! Take a look behind the scenes:
We interviewed our director Maged Nassar on making his mesmerising animation film for the Sharjah Book Authority. Produced by Good People Films, it’s Nassar’s latest collaboration with the animation wizards at ZANAD.
Happy Holidays! What a wild year it’s been for Bonaparte! Thank you all for your continued support from our clients and partners, friends and family.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Here’s to an even wilder 2023 ;)
Take a look behind the scenes of our Google Pixel Shoot with Mackenzie Sheppard. Thanks to everyone who has involved in this project! 🤳🧶
Bonaparte welcomes the Creature & Animatronics artist John Nolan!
“From a bench-pressing rodent to filling Jurassic World with dinos, John Nolan has been flying the physical effects flag for over a decade. Nolan is a master of creature effects, animatronics and practical effects – one of the greatest ever produced in his field in the UK. He cut his teeth on the Harry Potter franchise two decades ago, then went independent, started directing himself, and has been building creatures – animals, monsters, aliens, even people – ever since. His credits span from TV ads to famous TV credit sequences, to music videos – and movies."
Good times, inspiring talks, great music.
We are proud to have been an official partner for Ciclope Festival 2022.
Only great news came from the event: Woo! Go! directed by Mackenzie Sheppard won Silver at Ciclope.
We hosted the Schlürfen & Schlemmen dinner, as well as the festival’s after-party at Rabatz & Lärm.
Thank you to everyone who made it such a special week!
We had the honour of presenting the Changing The Lens panel discussion at CICLOPE, with the Emmy-nominated director Coodie Rock and J.M. Harper – director/editor/co-founder of the Changing the Lens initiative.
The two filmmakers discussed the process behind the feature documentaries they have made together, with co-director, Chike Ozah, and editor, Max Allman.

BONAPARTE welcomes Mackenzie Sheppard!
Question: what do a travel show for aliens, Japan’s first female rugby squad and a man trapped in his own mobile phone have in common? Answer: Mackenzie Sheppard.
Sheppard is a hands-on director, deftly mixing filmic techniques from live action to VFX, 360 and animation and adding a dollop of magical whimsy. Trying to make sense of his international background and varied body of work, Shots sat down with Mack to learn more about his craft.
