What do you do? We Make Stuff Happen.
Creative production company We Make Stuff Happen is to launch a South-West creative collective this spring. The collective will be used to service the local area, creating props, sets, sampling stands, exhibition spaces and more. We Make Stuff Happen is inviting local, specialist makers to get in touch to be in with a chance of joining the creative team.
Last week, the Brighton-based production company We Make Stuff Happen celebrated its 10th birthday. Over those ten years, they’ve worked with household names including M&S, Cadbury and Innocent to create eye-catching experiences and bespoke builds, designed to delight. Some of the more bizarre requests have included a giant tick sculpture, a cinema screening atop a London skyscraper, and an edible billboard.
Company director, JD Bracknell, said:
“We’ve been using freelance makers from the SW for several years and we’re always impressed with their creativity and skill, and we’re also finding that some of our most inventive and innovative briefs are coming from regional agencies. Having regular contact with such a wide talent pool, people who work with some of the most prestigious brands, film and TV companies in the world, is something we’re really excited about, and in turn, we hope to bring interesting opportunities into the area.”
As part of its expansion, We Make Stuff Happen is set to launch a South West creative collective, offering a complete set of production services, from design right through to event management. The expansion will use makers and craftsmen from the area, who will be responsible for the weird and wonderful builds.
