– If your cast had a theme
song, what would it be? – Weren’t we… – We had a song. – Yeah, we had a song, right? – We had a song, yeah, yeah. – We were- – But we were in Cuba, can’t you imagine? I mean, you’re surrounded
by music constantly, but we had a song.
– (mumbles) Great song. – It wasn’t the one about this guy from… (speaks Spanish) – Yeah exactly– (muttering) Funk… Cimafunk. – Cimafunk! – Cimafunk. – ♪ Voy pa’ mi casa. ♪ – [Edgar Ramirez] ♪ Me voy pa’ mi casa. ♪ – ♪ Si, pa’ mi casa. ♪ ♪ Pero si quieres me voy pa’ la tuya. ♪ – Pa’ la tuya, that was our song, yeah. It’s “Tu Casa”, right? (speaks Spanish) – I’m going home (mumbles). – Cinefunk. – But if you want, I’ll go to yours. – Exactly. (laughter) I’m going home, but if you
want me, I go with you. – Exactly, I go to yours. – You get the, catch the drift. (relaxing music) (laughter) – What’s your director’s
most-used phrase on set? (laughter) – (mumbles) we shoot another one. – Shoot, shoot, shoot, yes, exactly. – Let’s shoot, let’s shoot, let’s shoot. Yeah, because we had only, I mean, there were
moments we had three takes because they were taking the
planes or closing the airspace in Cuba. – You have no idea. We had really difficult stuff to do and sometimes we had so little time especially when we were
shooting the planes. Everything had to be done very fast or we had some specific locations only for a limited time. Sometimes I would be frantic but the thing is because
I hate rehearsing, I hate for the actors
to be waiting on set. What I always aim for is
that the actors can walk on the set and just be on
camera and so we forget we’re making a film. – Yeah, I was gonna say that’s
not the most repeated one but it’s one that always happened when there was a new person
coming in, they were like, oh, we don’t rehearse. (laughter) But I have a question,
let’s just shoot it. Let’s just do it. Okay, but what is your question? Okay, yeah, yeah, we’ll find out. Let’s just, we don’t rehearse. – You shoot, you get it wrong, and then you know what,
you know, maybe you get the answer to the question. – Exactly. – My first day of
shooting, I had met Olivier a couple times before, but in
my first day, I shot my very first scene in the film and it was like, Oh, it’s my last scene,
and then I arrive there and Olivier said, you sit
here and there’s a reporter, you’re here, and I go,
okay, so I sat and he said, Roll camera! I was like, ohhhhh! (laughter) – And he came to the hotel that afternoon saying, Edgar, Olivier
does not rehearse at all, and I said, No, he doesn’t. I forgot to mention that. – Also, we play with Cuban
accent and everything so we were a little bit, (gasps). It was a bit daunting (mumbles). It’s the best to do, when
you think about getting into the cold water and
you’re like, (mumbles), you might as well just, somebody
push you now to the water. – You’re really (mumbles). – And also the thing is that sometimes you get great first takes, often you get great first takes, but even when you get
very bad first takes, at least it focuses on the problems. When you’re rehearsing, you ask yourself the wrong questions. You start analyzing and discussing things and it destroys the energy and destroys the spontaneity. If you shoot, you know
what the real problems are and you solve those problems– – Less abstract, more (mumbles). – And you can move on. (upbeat music)

BEDROOM BRAND TO GLOBAL STREETWEAR BRAND | Bee Inspired | Our Story

BEDROOM BRAND TO GLOBAL STREETWEAR BRAND | Bee Inspired | Our Story


Might just sit here with a subby suit on.
Say this is my career here. And then put some bandages on me. If this was a bench this
was our career. We were both playing professional football at the time and I just left a club called St Mirren And Steven just joined it and through a
mutual friend of ours Andy Doorman we just became really good pals. Steven lived with Andy at the time. And his missus moved over from America so Andy had to move into another flat.
Steven didn’t have anywhere to stay so he just moved there. It was the first time I actually moved
out of Dundee I think I’d played for Dundee United I’d moved to Glasgow when I was 25. I just became in a circle of friends,
Mark being one of those guys. We had a kind of coffee club
and we liked to come up with ideas after training What do you want to do after football? evan at that early stage we were still thinking
what we’re gonna do when we finish playing. Obviously trying to come up with an idea cause all through your career, when you’re coming towards the end of it you’re still thinking like what can I do next and it’s quite a daunting prospect. We weren’t fortunate enough to be in a position like a English Premiership
player were you can retire at the end of your career and maybe have a nice
luxury lifestyle thinking what actually are we gonna
do we’re going to have to get a nine-to-five office job or what’s it going to lead on to. Obviously I didn’t really happen overnight. We kind of went our separate ways for a while and obviously lived together and then I moved up to
Ross County and was playing football for Ross County a few years and then I got a bad injury
so I’d had a bad injury in my career and it came back and I got
injured in one game and I remember trying come back from, thinking I couldn’t come back and I was trying to get training and I was taking a lot of painkillers
every day try get her back in the fold and I remember playing one game at
Celtic park and came off the bench maybe just after half time and just
miles off the game I think we ended up getting beat four nil but
that day I remember thinking I can’t play at this level anymore so I really
need to start thinking about what I’m gonna do. I was fortunate enough to get a chance
to go play in Thailand at the time it was a total different opportunity for me and that was why I why I wanted
to go and do that but when football you you make friends but like you don’t
actually keep in touch with too many guys I think a lot of guys are like
that you’ve got almost a lot acquaintances but when I moved to Thailand
me and Mark kept in touch are we were still at the point like, what
we’re going to do, what we want to do? Thinking all the time there must be an opportunity
that can maybe make us some money outside the game and obviously like I
said and I got quite a bad injury and I was I was probably looking more
than Robbo at the time because I was sort of panicking like what can we do, what can we do,
and Robbo was like well I’m living the dream out here. Think you made some friends over there with some of the manufacturers over there. They were making some things for stalls and there was a few people making t-shirts. There was a few wholesalers that I got in touch with a few foreign guys, an Italian guy, French guys a couple of English lads and we were always in that friend circle a few of them were
supporters of the team I was actually playing for so it made that initial chat a lot easier saying I play for one of the teams in the city and then that led on and me going back to Coco saying I think we can maybe start a brand, what do you think? I remember when you first came to me and you’re were like do you think we should start a brand and I was like I don’t know and
it’s just that fear of not really knowing what to do, should we start this? and I was like I dunno, I dunno and a few people had known and started
them and I didn’t want to be like stepping on any toes, I didn’t wanna
offend anyone but I don’t know and then he was like c’mon, we’ll
just try it, he obviously just convinced me to do it which thankfully
was one of the best thing he done. Again it was like because
it was such a small investment we only like invested five or six
hundred pounds between us because we made friends
with these factories like super low minimum orders, there was the very little
risk involved for us but at the end the day that was all the money we probably
had at that time, like we didn’t have excess cash to go “right I’m going to invest
thousands of pounds in a business” It was very much, let’s put it in to a hobby and try and increase it and increase it. We’re doing it for the fun of it
as well a wee bit to start with. So we just come up
with these four designs. I think we got really low minimums, didn’t we? Yeah, it was like 25 pieces per style. A basic white tee but with a
graphic print. Yeah, we didn’t have any expertise in
design or really selling anything, or making a website or anything so
really to start with it was really organic so we just came up with these
designs, four designs we designed them on our iPhone. The football related one with the tactics. Yeah tried to tie it to football. A lot of skull, roses, the candy skulls Using some basic
ShutterStock files We had no skills for design or
anything like that and I think that’s where we’ve learned over the years, we
had to kind of self teach ourselves, we’re self-taught and a lot of the stuff
that we do in the business even to this day, regarding figures and
working with marketing team and all that. So we’ve managed to get these four
designs, obviously Robbo being around this manufacturer, managed to get
really low minimums and once they got designed they got sent over and I was
like right, what we gonna do with these. I think we just started on Facebook to start with? We had these four designs we set up a Facebook page, put these four designs on our Facebook and we managed
to get like a few footballers that we played with and against,
there were probably a lot better than us On the National and a few
Premiership players and Scottish Premiership players like Mark said, were better than us but were quite happy. It was kind of before that whole influencer marketing. Sort of the start of Instagram There was boys like…
From Scotland Steven Naismith, Charlie Mulgrew,
Scott Brown, Robert Snodgrass They’d all put it on their social media and pushed it and within
the first sort of week or two, we’d sold out sold out of the product,
the initial batch So we were buzzing off that. Once we did that we just took the money and we just reinvested it and invested in more product I actually maybe think we restocked
those same t-shirts and maybe added in another two Possibly I think our first website was like a big cartel website. Awful, wasn’t it?
We designed it ourselves It’s the things you had to do with no budget
but we just had to do something that could make it easier for the customer to
actual purchase the product. I think we were at the time we were looking for
sort of ideas, a bit of inspiration for the name of the brand and we were obviously
scouring lots of like social media and and coming up with really ideas of how we
were going to set the brand up so initially because we didn’t have any
design background. We had the initial four designs but
we’re thinking how we’re gonna get more designs and because we didn’t have a
great design background we were thinking how can we get people to design for us
or get a designer in and we kind of came up with an idea of like well if we can
get somebody design for us run like a competition we can use that person’s
designs and maybe give them like ten, fifteen of those t-shirts as well,
so we’ll maybe order like 50 and we’ll give them like 10 or 15 or order a batch and give them some of it. They could get a slice of the design. Or they could maybe sell it to their friends
or family or anything really and we thought that’s maybe a good way of
getting people to design for us maybe come up with constant designs. After our first four designs sold out so well we didn’t actually go down that route. That idea just got shelved, didn’t it? It kind of came with that idea that we’re trying to inspire somebody to design for us We were looking at that aspect and then
I think Steven had been scouring through social media. The early days of Instagram,
there was a few pictures I’d seen. It just turned out it was a sweetie
rapper with Bee Inspired written on it and it was a case of can we
just take away the bee and come up with a logo. Can we use that to… We always found that a lot of brand we’d seen all had just a logo instead of just text so we wanted a logo to start with which has changed over the years,
over the last few years anyway. So we tied in Bee Inspired with the little bee logo. We were using the platform to inspire people to
design for us so that’s kind of where the name Bee Inspired came from,
we just sort of ran with that, didn’t we? Because we’ve had like a lack of
design or skills yeah we just didn’t really have any designs, self taught Obviously trying to learn, I think we learned Photoshop in like six months between the two of us and the first ones were on our phones, so we were thinking that you can’t really sustain a brand if you’re designing or
it’s taking that long to design things on your phone. We just want
to give something back as well, what we try nowadays is give back
to the customer kind of make people feel part of the brand,
if you design for us then you can get some t-shirts and you can maybe sell
them and it kind of makes people feel part of the brand
rather than we just tell people want they want We kind of design most of our products based on what we feel the customer wants, we’ve got a lot at analytical data that we use and even the B33 we came up with due to the fact that a
customer, like we put that out there and the customers really like that so we
we just carried on using the B33 through through time. We try and get as much
feedback from a customer as much as possible now
and just looking at interacting through the emails and through the social media stories,
just trying to see what they want. It’s all fine and well what we want,
but we kind of know what the customer wants now just from
obviously the sales data that we’ve acquired over the last few years. It’s the customer that determines the direction of the brand a lot of the time just depending on what products that are showing up We’ve added in different branding over the years just like the B33 is a focal point
of the brand brand now I think it’s
recognizable on the street now so that when people see it they know whereas
previously we maybe just had the small small B logo that was the
product and people were probably noticing the design, not the actual brand The B33 wasn’t even an initial part of the brand. It was just something that
we included and got a good customer reaction It was probably two, three years,
two years maybe down the line. Yeah it was just like we started doing photoshoots with a couple of
samples that came in with the logo on the chest and it just kind of worked for
us. My time was kind of up in Thailand with the football I was just wanting to come home and sometimes when you get to a certain
age your mind starts to switch to like this hobby that we had is
kinda taken off into this brand, my focus was starting
to go away from football from having injury problems and stuff. I really enjoyed doing doing this type of idea so I moved back in…
it was kind of like fast forwarding the time and I moved back in
my Mark in Glasgow and then we were getting the products sent in and from
Thailand originally. I got a bad injury and I was thinking about
what to do so I remember I left Ross County and I went part-time at football
and then that sort of ended and for a six-month period I didn’t really have a
job or anything. I was kind of coming to terms with I wasn’t gonna be playing
football and I was I was really looking for that job and nothing was coming
along and I remember thinking like I’ve only really got two weeks sort of money left
before I’m gonna have to move out my flat. It sort of got to that
stage that I was thinking I may be gonna have to move up my parents, give up my flat
and sort of go from there but luckily I’d managed to get a job and
we’d sort of started Bee Inspired at the time Just scraping enough to get by For me, it was just enough to get by and I managed
to get a part-time contract with Stranraer at the time as well. That was the bonus with starting
Bee Inspired when we started it is because we had other income coming in. It definitely gave us the chance,
although we had a small investment in the brand but we had a weekly wage. It wasn’t too much pressure so we could reinvest
the money that any sales were coming in that could then get reinvested in
the next batch of t-shirts So we didn’t have to touch any money. And that was kind of a rule we set between us was like we don’t touch
any of the the money, the money stays in the bank account and it
gets reinvested and that probably happened for two years
really. Yeah just reinvested everything, didn’t we? Once we were at
stage we could take a small wage to replace our job that we’d actually given up that we could actually then carry on just building the brand As I was saying I got a bad injury and I was kind of thinking where am I gonna go in my career so I thought I’ll go part time and I’ll get a job
so I’d come back down the road and I was working in Reed Recruitment when the brand
first started We were getting designs over and the demand was getting higher and higher and I was getting stuff sent to work and I
posting stuff on my lunch hour so I was going to work, maybe taking
like 15, 20, 30 parcels to work with me and then on my lunch hour was just
spend all lunch in the post office posting them and then Steven’s
working in recruitment at that point as well. Yeah I came back and I went semi-pro with football and then
and also got a job in the city we used to walk into the town, it was like a
20-minute walk from the Gorbals. We used to walk into work, walk home and it’s just be discussing what we’re gonna do with the brand like what do we want to do, where do we want to go so you’d be working full-time we
still be playing part-time football so would be like Saturdays,
Tuesdays, Thursdays was taken up and any spare minute we got was the Wednesday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday Sunday night was just like let’s constantly work
on Bee Inspired and see where we can take it I think it, we maybe
did that for like three months before we were like right, this is kind of taking over our time like I was spending more time thinking about what was gonna do with
Bee Inspired than I was at Reed Recruitment and I was always
getting told what are you up to? I was always kind of living in my head a lot of the time just thinking about what we were gonna do and I think Stephen first of all said I
can’t do this anymore I’m gonna quit and I’m gonna go
full-time with a brand and I was like well I’ll just try and keep my job for a
wee while because it’s a bit precarious giving up your job. It’s quite daunting, isn’t it? The sales weren’t unbelievable. We never had a marketing platform, all
we were using was organic social media and again like the footballers, trying to
push the stuff as much as possible. As soon as we done it our full time hours were going into driving the business forward. It was just getting a little
bit out of hand the way it was growing and trying to stay in your job at the same time. Looking back, it was the best thing we ever done probably. Easily. When we gave up, it just accelerated, didn’t it?
Massively. We were working out of Mark’s
flat so when I came back from Thailand the stock room was Mark’s
bedroom and then the stock got moved up to the upstair and in my room there was
a bit more space in the far side so I was sleeping on t-shirts They were just piled up in boxes and then as we started reinvesting
the money and looking at, we started bringing in tracksuits which has been a
major part of our business over the last six year. Think that’s sort of what kicked us on a little bit Obviously we were selling t-shirts and there’s quite a few bedroom brands that had been doing t-shirts but nobody had really taken it
to the next stage and coming from football we knew what we liked in a
tracksuit, we knew what fit well and how we’d want to wear it so we’ve
kind of gone out of our way to try and find out how can we start a tracksuit. So many amendments, the tracksuit, the fit “oh I don’t like that”, Don’t get me wrong, the first couple were a disaster. We were at the stage now where the sales were starting to come in consistently like just using our social media
platforms and like just organic market and having more and more
footballers start to wear the product like right, we’re gonna take they take the plunge and go for like a little office space. I think we need to move out or my
missus would have left me. So we found a thousand square foot unit and we went in and were like “this is
far too big for us” We were panicking at the time and we don’t need this but we got a
bit of support from the government on that Initiatives that you
get some help with the rent and stuff like that Rent relief Which was a
massive help for us in the beginning Honestly, how quickly did that place fill up? We moved in the August and the Christmas just went mental This is big, are we going to need all this space? I think it was like the first Black
Friday that happened and I remember just sitting at that computer just printing. He’d had a hip operation, I remember being on a night out,
remember the night out we had in Edinburgh Aye, then we came back the next day. Obviously nobody really knew
anything about Black Friday we didn’t think it was gonna go too mad and we come back
on the Black Friday and there was just… There was a delivery as well there was 10 boxes and
the lift was knackered and there was a thousand, just thousands of orders Just bonkers, just sat at the table, you were printing and I was packing I didn’t leave that table all day, just printing. We did it in a horrible old-school way of like copy and paste every address
copy and pasting on to a label It was so manual, it was just the two of us as well we had maybe had like one helper, one worker at the time so to actually then just
like see the growth of the business and the following two, three years was just
like that it was just like phenomenal from every Black Friday we’ve had
you just see the difference of like the scale operation that’s going on. That first one of copying and printing labels, then doing the franking machine,
I think, like I say it was like thousands orders and we were
just doing it so manually I think it took us like two days just to print and pack
the orders. Aw man, that was a shift. At that point we’d got
tracksuits and they were working really well for us, Yeah, that was when we
started leading on to photoshoots, we actually had enough money that we
could actually do these Remember we got that Razor tracksuit in? In Abercromby, the first tracksuits had come in and they done
really well for us and then we launched this tracksuit called The Razor tracksuit.
It was like a blue tracksuit and had a white panel on top. And it just had the actual
wee bee logo on it, didn’t it at that time? We couldn’t get enough of it, could we? It just flew out the door,
we were just packing it constantly. We kept reordering it, kept reordering it. That sort of took the brand to the next level,
that tracksuit. We were just doing the photoshoots like in and around, Glasgow, West End of Glasgow, round about the warehouse like we’re just kind of making what we had
we just had like a local photographer taking the videos
we made a video as well. We’re just coming up with different
ideas of like how can we make the brand We were doing everything local to start with Yeah, local in and around Glasgow
and we were like how do we take this on to make it desirable,
we want to almost make it like a travel blog a little bit, so that we’re going
we’re traveling to these exotic places and showcasing our products and
how the customer would wear our product in these locations from the looks. It’s kind of aspirational, isn’t it? We went to Dubai like was one of our…
we went to Barcelona but that was sort of right back in the beginning about I’d
say our first sort of like proper photoshoot abroad was like Dubai. We went over
to Dubai and we found all these class locations, we shot in
zero-gravity and we shot like and around the marina we went up to the desert and
then I just remember thinking at that time they just made the brand look
better they know all of our compares about time they weren’t doing anything a
lot people just do this as standard knows it’s Canali ER I feel like we were
the first ones that kind of set the bar on this so like putting it out there
that I this is what you almost like sat in the trend of unique to do that so I’m
not saying everybody needs to do like we don’t do 20 location shoots a year but
like we always feel like we is quite nice to go to showcase the product
and another location yeah kind of given the customer like I’d love to go there
I’d love to wear that brand I mean just kind of aspirational for the customer to
be seen and from Dubai we’ve taken it to Miami Thailand
New York Chicago summer meet some amazing locations and the Thailand was
one of our popular so it was really good membership and Thailand at Meyerbeer we
called about 6:00 in the morning to get the tractor cuz the tank gone over to
get attracted out took us and then the war was like a film the beach usually
marked and there was like no army it’s just coming in on the on the ball and we
got over the big sharks swimming a boat and then just walking on the beach and
there’s just nobody there I was just unbelievable remember shooting there for
a good like two hours Sun was coming up and just the two models and I think the
models enjoy comment on the shirts as well because it was just like we always
like to do something it was it like we’d gallop at likes before sunrise just it
where’s that maybe other people will just go we’ll just go up it ten o’clock
and we’ll shoot for a couple hours and we’re always done things that were just
like bet different it was kind of it was kind of a bit before sort of influence
as well but we were taking these models on photo shoots and then they were
putting on their social media was like they were kind of like sort of log in
for hours about look at this location what I would be inspired clove and look
at nestling and it kinda like again made the customer think wow look at the
models they really enjoyed themselves that this is a cool round here and the
more photoshoots we did the more we just saw the saw sales and they grant their
brand grow and grow and grow so we just felt that saw more we put into these saw
things the more it reflected on the brand and the more love customer engaged
in the product which kind of led us moving on to things like we started
sponsoring pool parties so we did like BH may or just to add in more events and
again really into the customer so they could
get be part of that be part of the brand kind of thought where’s the customer
gonna wear this product and how are they gonna how are they gonna think that’s
gonna look good in their sort of environments or things like the BH
the Palumbo I remember one of the guys from first island covering us and saying
oh we didn’t like a like a sauce from trappin I be fine just like this brand
was everywhere everywhere can you leave like how far you have come from that’s
the best just by going to some more locations for holiday locations and just
seen the brand everywhere that small that small wheelhouse that small office
that we had we grew out of it so fast that we’re like and doing all these
events and having footballers with the product that we’re like we need we know
need another abeggar you know we were in there for like a year and a half and
then it was just like well we need to know you know I knew that one way death
well this’ll last us for years like we’ll be in here for as long as we
know remember walking in the warehouse just like we took a few people to see
her and they’re like thinking like it was almost like they were saying like
what you doing I’m you don’t need us you’re not but the belief that we had
and the brand was obviously like yes I think we should take this
yeah this year we had had a lot of plants they increased the product range
so at that point we were very much t-shirt structures shorts probably like
we just wanted to expand the range to go for the like to bring it more when our
products like the jackets and the Jesus slick and they are to our right now or
about their cell battalion jeans off husband and they were selling really
well we were kind of looking at hangar jeans and t-shirt you’re gonna wear them
in summer but what you’re gonna wear with genius-like obviously we had the
hoodies but we kind of fought saw like a jacket I mean jackets and just cover all
bases there me and that best new facility the new unit west let us do
that we’re having the extra space that actually store the product you know give
us that give us the capacity to you have these products because we had some worse
increase in more staff coming in and we’re doing we quickly found that you
know it wasn’t big enough either yeah we had I don’t know about that time
that we got em we’d obviously got players like Cuttino for menial and
and then that really saucepot the brand on again because all these people these
is high-profile footballers we’re in that Brandon and after the audience poll
is that sportswear that’s our background and and these people we’re not really
kind of kicked around on again and uh national especially you seem like then
on national still start coming in from the likes of Germany and France and
Spain and in the Netherlands Ireland and then that is just like kind of just the
start of fella not filling off the real host to then corn again to the guess
I’ll compare veg didn’t just want to be a UK brand did we we didn’t want just so
like Hawk we could just be a UK Brad we kind of thought well there’s a potential
oh they are like with these footballers wearing it in different countries
continual playing in Spain Joe I mean we thought to ourselves we can maybe kick
us on and and and when we start open up to to Germany like little Germany and
and obviously I under the medical as well its Norse these sales and with that
warehouse that we had we had we had enough sausage to have enough product
like 52017 was both amazing and a bit of a disaster yeah the weird holes that we
moved into which we thought was going to be far too big for us for forever and
quickly became too small I think we’d be done the most amazing sales we’d we’d
ever seen yeah it was it I wasn’t just black factories to build up the Black
Friday’s well week the month before about us it was just up more and more
and then they just have boomer Black Friday and we felt we found herself like
a week behind in orders we won’t provide the service that we previously we didn’t
we didn’t really calculate how much the effect just did we were like oh we’ve
got stuff it’s comfortable we’ve got room at that point I think we’d had that
warehouse we had another overspill warehouse and
we had a warehouse at the airport yeah and we just couldn’t provide the
customer service I think I think the three companies has had about a problem
that years we also we hadn’t dealt delay in house and they also had a delay and
it was just like one big bang almost thinking of a car crash that we we just
have we’re never this is never gonna happen again we can’t afford for this to
help last like two that was like two years
ago yeah two years ago so we kind of made the decision we don’t want this to
happen again so we’re really gonna have to go and get another warehouse but this
time it was a growth plan obviously we want to be in this lets hub for four
five years everything else and the global it’s like a new global heart of
their national growth and everything this is war and all our items that are
sent globally us are sent from this less hop here on a daily basis using the main
carriers fully tracked around the world I think we’ve tripled our staff the
warehouse is sixty or thousand square foot we’ve got office space for our
marketing team our garment technologist customer service everything that
warehouse is on is on the side of the offices as well so everything’s focused
to really take us on the next level and so I really go for some sort of global
growth one of the highlights for me for the brand M has to be Leo Messi well
actually been seen well and we’re in the product and it was Christmas Christmas
Eve last year and I was sent like someone had tagged me on a picture on
Instagram and Barcelona bit or not kind of went on break and he was flying back
to Argentina and he was pictured at the airport well we have enough black
signature t-shirt and it was just probably like to see how far to see how
father but the brand had come from like Austin and the flap to then kind of
going through the years to actually seeing like the greatest player that’s
ever loved Wilma product just like and I think it
actually gives you credibility as well to actually other people see these type
of guys when they don’t get paid to wear that they just wear it because they like
people the quality the fat and the brand perception is just like the ups or that
they’re like I’m gonna but anyone for somebody like that wearing your products
could be for two ex-professional football I mean obviously look up to
these table bodies to be wearing your products I mean yeah
yeah I can’t wait for the next part of the journey hopefully just really kick
on internationally and really take apply next level that’s the plan

ANTSTORE Gespräch mit Andrew Stephenson über Blattschneideameisen


Hello and welcome. I’m driving to the airport. But I’m not traveling, I’m picking up someone. He is from Scotland, an experienced antkeeper, who knows a lot about leaf-cutter ants. And I will have a talk with him. Come on, join us. Martin: My guest today is Andrew Stephenson. Martin: Hi Andrew, how was your flight? I had a 2 hour flight from Edinburgh. Everything was fine. Nice that you are here. I am happy that we can talk today. Thank you for having me it’s very nice
to be here. Which was your first ant colony. I did research in University on social insects. I wanted an ant colony so in 1992 I bought my first Atta cephalotus colony from a professor. I kept the ants for several years and the colony got bigger and bigger. One day they managed to escape from the formicarium and leave the house under the door They removed all plants from the neighbors garden and carried them back in. At that point I gave the colony to a zoo because it was too big. That was my first encounter with Atta Cephalotus. lifelong love of them which I’ve pursued
ever since you are also expert for for animals with leaf cutter ants and wise
leaf cutter ants what why you likes us and spits well leaf cutting ants are the
most advanced of all the social insects the the things that they do the way that
they’re cast differentiations the soldiers the
gardeners how it’s all laid out is incredible nobody could fail to be
amazed by what what you see when you look in these displays and and when you
see them in our a big public display in a zoo or a museum and you see all the
different elements of the colony it’s fantastic I mean in the tropics in the
wild you see them and they’ll they’ll travel they’ll travel hundreds of meters
to plan and carry the leaves by and the fact that they’re not eating the leaves
the fact that they’re using the leaves to grow a crop and then to feed on the
crop and all the different elements of that they are fantastic so do you give
them different leaves every day or do you keep on black is that blackberry yes
yes normally we give this loose at this moment it’s very easy to get plans like
it and we use odds of flour from dried flowers
so we have the ant farm for the wall whoa that’s lovely
that’s nice have you seen that before that’s very nice thank you so do you
make here as well so you got CNC yes she amazing that’s beautiful
you tell me that you’re often and and and treated at why what what what us
especial was treated at so the first colony of ants that I bought came from
timid Italian so I wanted to find where they came from so I followed them back
to Trinidad and and from then on pretty much put down roots into the diet I’ve
bought a house there and I spend several months a year and and in fact at the end
of this year I’m going to move to trigger that permanently and lovin
Trinidad and then travel to Europe to do the work that I do
so why Trinidad they speak English they drive an IRA side of the road it’s very
it’s very Yuki friendly into the diet so it’s it’s a nice place to be
my wife is Trinidadian and the children they I have children who are half-turn
Italian so it’s it’s a place that I feel very comfortable and there’s only two
species of leaf cotton and there are artists authorities and academics on
spinosus so in terms of variety it’s not fantastic but in the rest of South
America there’s plenty to see and it’s a good place to travel there from Trinidad
to see all so yeah Trinidad is an amazing place I would recommend anybody
come to another floor yeah and you are also travel in other
countries in which country it was travel so virtually all of the South American
countries but Paraguay is where I’m concentrating now I was there last year
and trying to organize paperwork people work in South American countries is very
very difficult and it’s taken 18 months to finally sort that so I’ll be going to
Paraguay this year to bring back lots of different species and whereas there’s
only two species of leafcutters and Trinidad those 22 species in Paraguay so
fantastic variety including the grass cutting ants which should be really good
to see so yeah I’m looking forward to that and I’ve managed to set up all the
people and need the infrastructure all the things that you need to be able to
go there and get colonies here is a strategy that birds don’t find the nest
that’s the head node not a street you know you see here so and here’s the
answers ended okay so not a lie in your van yes interesting
so then we have here from sauce he drops a mess over borrows so we had here built
nest was calm and and they’ve dug that themselves of the RS that are preformed
you know they’ve got did you got problems with the keeping of leaf cutter
ants and if yes what how did you fix it so we look at two parameters when we’re
setting up we’ve got lines nice even temperature and high high humidity so
when we are setting up our our display in a zoo and we are talking to the
client about about looking at them we see that you have to monitor the
temperature and humidity in the fungus garden so we so the humidity meter
should have a probe that goes into the fungus so you can you can satisfy
yourself it’s amazing how you if you measure the humidity even a little
distance away from where the fungus is it can be completely different so we try
to get them to measure the humidity and the where the funguses and the biggest
problem with the type of display is that if you don’t
have lots of soil in the display which a lot of people don’t want because they
want to see the fungus if you don’t have lots of soil it can be quite difficult
to keep the humidity and the temperature even some things with very small
colonies you don’t hear that there’s a problem until the colonies nearly dead
and the fungus is gone so you’ve got to get it right at the beginning there’s no
time with small colonies to to make mistakes often and so people think that
leaf cutter ants are difficult species they’re not a difficult species if you
if you set it up properly there are only are difficult species of it’s not
correct so taking advice at the beginning from
experts about how to say to up aesthetic colors and do the research make sure
that you do the research to know what you’re talking about I think it’s really
important have an acrylic which you see but what is very popular in the internet
I don’t like it but the customers liked it so we produce this nests do you make
these yes we have obvious glass and then back side we have for acrylic
workshop and we have here and a special ground which saves the water what are
the mmunity what was your biggest adventure or experience about ends the
adventures that you have with ants normally start once you’ve got the ants
and you’ve got to try and move them across the world but recently I was in
French Guiana and I was on this huge mound of artists a Flutie’s it was a
massive big mound and it was quiet because you know they come out at night
and I wanted to see some activity so I stood on the top of the mound and stamp
my feet on it and nothing happened at all and I was kind of confused as to why
they weren’t coming out and I stepped back and all round the outside of this
mound there was lots of tall grass and what I didn’t realize was all the
soldiers all the majors had come out and they were all over the grass and I
stepped back into them and I had shorts oh and I had short trousers on and they
were my legs were covered in majors and covered in blood because they just all
bare and it was a it was a flight a shock and
one of the biggest adventures we did a program for the BBC and the UK called
plan ants and we were asked to go to the tropics and find a million ants in a
colony and bring it back to the UK and film it in our studio and it took us two
days to dig this colony and find the Queen and we were bringing big handfuls
of fungus gardens there was a hundred and sixty fungus gardens that we took
and we had a massive big box off camera and we were preaching all the fungus
into the box but what you didn’t see on the camera was the box was covered in
blood because we had gloves on but within about half an hour the gloves
were all cut to pieces because the soldiers had cut the gloves so we were
we were lifting and putting in but there was blood dripping and as well it was
very very unpleasant yeah yeah it really was but we did it we got the Queen we
found the Queen at the end of the second day we found the Queen and she was she
was in the last fungus garden because they’d obviously moved our there but she
was surrounded by ants so she was about the size of a mouse but with all the
antler and so we knew immediately we found the Queen and we would pick it up
and she was it was huge a big cocoon of ants and we got her so yeah and that
film no I think you can see on YouTube now it’s it’s a couple hours long and it
says a fantastic documentary on leaf covenants camponotus our lovely aunt the
one these are a nice big chunky and quite an attractive and okay and this is
a oneness and some people say with this material it’s maybe the ants can do but
to know we have tested with lots of ants and we have knows much remixes that the
ants cannot cut that is amazing and so this nest is one year old and you see
it’s very clean no never you must clean and to ask the and spring or to the last
box in front of us we have a starter kit a set up which we sell for private
customers and what do you think about this what is your feedback about us well
all the elements that you need are here the the next tank the feeding area and
the waste is it’s all there and it’s so easy to distinguish between all the
different processes you can see them cutting leaves bringing it to the garden
and then taking the waste to the to the waste chamber for our small-scale private collector to have something like
this in their home and to be able to see all the different things it’s fantastic
absolutely fantastic I mean I’m assuming you could extend the walkway if you
wanted to you could have a lot longer if you wanted to have the the feeding area
a distance to the nest you could have that you could take it right in a room
as our as our set office is amazing and the colony of this and there I mean if
you want any proof that this is a good system just look at how healthy that
colony is its enormous it’s one of the biggest a crumber makes colonies I’ve
ever seen when I see your setups and I’ve seen these setups all over the
world because people have come here and bought them and taking them back and
then I’ll go along and see them most recently in our in a zoo and Englund I
saw some of your setups there and they’re obviously functioning very well
and they’re doing you know they’re looking great so we have also option for
a b2b customers they move this way or you can change this the street
it’s ant way Wow open closed systems I like this this is very nice
so you’ve this is glass yes so when you have our species on display
do you have smaller colonies offshore to sail yes so they can say I won best one
and then you can yes our showroom so we can talk with other customers what is
possible aha and really the size of this you could
make this any size depending on what the people want
yeah so Andrew many tanks that you was here I was very happy and I have a small
present for you and not really for you know you can look in the inside Oh Oh fantastic
dry flowers for your ends Wow maybe you can test it I’ve actually never used
these before but I’ve always seen no and I wondered these are great well
leafcutter ants like mowers a red color but you can check it I will check
amazing thank you very much I appreciate Yeah I hope you enjoyed the video. Thank you so much for being there. And I look forward to the next video.

[Music] so gentlemen and ladies okay I I want to know it pre when come through the first meeting between Evangeline and Paul the first scene or the first rehearsal I don’t know but the first time because there is a wonderful chemistry between between you and and we want to see more because for me there is still there is not so much about these two characters and I want to know the first time the first interaction professional interaction between you and Paul and between Poland and you the first time was we had lunch together in the very first aim and we were both cast by Edgar Wright and he had hired both of us and then Edgar had left the film and we didn’t know exactly what was going on but we met to talk about the characters the story what was going on with the situation was but we met in New York at a restaurant you had just come back from Rwanda mhm yeah and we had a really nice really nice really nice lunch I don’t remember what the first scene oh yes I do yeah absolutely remember the first scene we shot in the car yeah the hardest scene of the film was our first scene together yeah yeah with the scene where where hope teaches God how to use the earpiece to train the aunts in her car it’s a very intense scene and that was our first scene ever together and and which was the most difficult scene in this in this movie for you also not as curious what yours was I think mine was what I thought might be yours as well which was the scene where there see where I’m about this big two feet tall and the technical everything they had to go into that was so tricky that it why they wound up taking almost a week to shoot this one sequence and we had to shoot it many times you had to shoot it by herself you had to shoot it with the little person dressed in green for green screen I had to do it with you just for light that I had to do it by myself we had to do it so many times so that they could put us both in the same frame it was the most tedious in a suit all day it was hot but it was it was really slow and I thought that was the hardest scene it was the most challenging scene for the technical part of it I I agree that that was definitely up there and gave me traumatic flashbacks to working on The Hobbit with small Kili who was actually Paul’s height but he had to be tiny through the whole film but for me the hardest scene and anatman and the wasp was the scene the first our first scene that we appeared together in the movie where we’re in a car together and the car is miniature and we I’m driving but I’m not actually driving I’m on a sound stage so I have to imagine that I’m driving remember when to stop remember when to go remember when to turn remember a lot of things with that and then we have birds attack the car and then we have a truck go overhead and we have our director young eNOS okay now there’s birds at the window but there’s nothing you’re never looking at nothing and now there’s a carpet no and then on top of that it was also seen that we had riad rest that morning so we were trying to remember our lines and trying to learn where to go and what to do and what we were looking at and that for that scene was for me the most difficult to shoot it was a really tough day at work I thought that’s it was really easy [Laughter] you

How does Ant-Man and The Wasp link to Infinity War? – New Trailer Breakdown


Hi there! This is Jon Lyus from HeyUGuys and today we’re gonna be looking at the new trailer for Ant-Man and Tthe Wasp. Our trailer breakdown is gonna include spoilers for Avengers infinity war so
please if you haven’t seen it yet go and do so! If you have seen it and you want
to find out how we think it’s gonna link with Avengers infinity war and Avengers
4 then watch on. The trailer kicks off with Cassie Lang wondering how long her
father has been Ant-Man again and unless he’s been breaking the rules again it
appears as if he may be doing his shrinking thing at the behest of the
government. After all Avengers Infinity War made it clear that being on the run
proved to be too much of a strain on Scott’s family. So, he made it in with the
government and was put on house arrest; presumably signing the scovia accords
and registering his abilities with the government in the process. Then again
this is Scott we’re talking about it’s just as likely he’s shrunk in his way
out of the ankle tag and is doing what he believes he needs to. We should also
take a moment to point out that there’s no sign of Cassie’s mother or stepfather
here. Is it possible they met with the same fate as the characters Thanos wiped
away with a snap of his fingers in Avengers Infinity War? Perhaps… but this
trailer fails to make it clear exactly when Ant-Man and The Wasp
takes place in relation to that film. So it could be before during or possibly
even after. The opening sequence in this trailer also confirms that Ant-Man is
embracing his newfound Giant-Man powers from Captain America Civil War. If the
man in the car he’s pursuing looks familiar it’s probably because that’s
Walton Goggins the Hateful Eight and Tomb Raider star who will be taking on
the role of the villainous Sonny Birch (a d-list Iron Man villain in the comic
books he’s the new head of cross industries). And like the first movies
yellowjacket it appears as if he has his sights set on Hank Pym’s
technology. That building which rapidly increases in size halfway through the
trailer was spotted in his hands in the teaser a few months back. This trailer
makes it abundantly clear that The Wasp is Ant-Man’s partner not his sidekick and
that’s the way it should be. Of course this is still a departure from the comic
books because the original Ant-Man and Wasp were actually founding Avengers members Hank Pym and his wife Janet Van Dyne. The difference here is that it’s Hanks’ daughter in the suit but as you can see
from that nifty little ship the retired superhero has created,
he’ll be travelling into the quantum realm to find her mother after she was
trapped there during the flashback in the first installment. However it appears
as if disaster struck while he was trying to find his wife because a new
threat has emerged in the form of The Ghost. While Scott’s stole the Ant-Man
suit and did good with it she seemingly has more nefarious plans with the tech
which allows her to phase through solid objects and take. Flight her comic book
counterpart boasts the same abilities but is a man and his main goal is
corporate espionage and hacking because he hates those who were in power and
seemingly control in the world with their wealth. That may sound somewhat
cliched but The Ghost isn’t one to be trifled with as his powers make him a
threat to even here as formidable as Iron Man. So Scott and Hope are clearly
gonna have their work cut out for them based on what we see here. On the plus
side they’ll have some help from Luis and his gang of thieves as it seems
they’ve gone straight and are now charging people for their services.
Either way Hank’s not happy about it but desperate times call for desperate
measures. Our titular heroes on the other hand do seem rather pleased to be
working together and while director Peyton Reed boarded the first movie at
the last minute due to Edgar Wright’s departure he’s
clearly had some time to come up with his own inventive action sequences as is
evident from The Wasp using the giant salt shaker to take down some goons.
There are a lot of size changing shenanigans in this trailer though and
with what looks like one of the most unique car chases we’ve seen in the
Marvel Cinematic Universe highlighted at the end of this trailer it’s clear this
sequel isn’t going to allow itself to be overshadowed by Marvel’s other 2018
offerings. Oh! A one question we’re sure you’re all desperate for an answer to is
why there’s a giant and playing the drums!??! Unfortunately we have no idea but
it’s gonna be a lot of fun finding out! Now what’s the deal with Laurence
Fishburne’s character Bill Foster? Well he’s clearly a former associate of Hanks
and someone who liked his comic book counterpart attempted to take on the
giant man persona as Goliath. Alas it seems Scott has managed to reach whole
new heights (literally) and this character’s role remains something of a
mystery for now. Our bet is that he’s somehow tied to The Ghost and may want
revenge on Hank for something that transpired in their
past. Fishburne however clearly has no qualms about making the leap from the DC
films universe for this movie. And what of Janet Van Dyne? Aside from that brief
glimpse inside the quantum realm she’s nowhere to be seen here, but we know the hero played by Michelle Pfeiffer will have a key role to play in the
proceedings. The question is, will she be suiting up as the wasp again and what
have those years trapped inside an altar dimension done to her? We’ll have to just
wait and see. So that’s our trailer breakdown for this new look at Ant-Man
and The Wasp. I think we’ve got it all pretty much covered but are there things
that you noticed that we haven’t looked at? Or do you have a theory about how
this will all play out when Ant-Man and The Wasp finally launches in cinemas? As
always leave your comments below. Like and subscribe and check back for more

Spider-Man and Mary Jane’s Upside-Down Kiss | Rotten Tomatoes’ 21 Most Memorable Moments


– [Spider-Man] You have a
knack for getting in trouble. – You have a knack for saving my life. (upbeat orchestral music) – [Sam Raimi] For me it
was a great love story, with a real human being at the center, somebody I could really identify with. Somebody who had to do homework, someone who the girls weren’t crazy about, somebody who was bullied. And yet he had to rise
up and become this hero to protect the city. And it seemed like they had
never heard that version before. I had great graphic images,
of how Spider-Man lands, what his pose looks like,
how he swings from a web. The job was to bring that
vision to the big screen. How would we do that? How would we get actors to move in a way that only a comic book
artist could depict? That was really the challenge. – [Jeff] The mandate was just to make it as real as we could. When Toby’s hanging upside
down, in the pouring rain, and she’s all wet. – [Sam] This was the
moment when Peter debugged that she’s his dream, of
helping the woman he loved. It’s also of finally getting
to kiss the woman he loved. The vulnerability that he exposes to her. I think that’s why her
pulling down the mask makes the moment special,
because his character longs to be loved by her. And to remove the mask
is exposing yourself to becoming vulnerable
with someone who loves you. – [Jeff] There was a considerable
amount of setup time. We were actually outside on the backlot with big rain machines but to
be able to see rain in movies it actually has to be a lot
bigger drops than real life rain so when you’re getting
rained on in the movies, it’s a lot of water. – [Sam] You do take after
take and they’re being doused in cold water and it can
become really chilling. – [Jeff] But we would have to
get out there, get in position and get the rain going,
and then we would have to lift Toby up on the wire, upside down, in the position you saw him in the movie, and that would take a couple minutes, so it’s a few minutes of misery
each time we do the take. – [Sam] And while he was
doing the scene I remember the water was falling down into his upside down nostrils, so he was kind of drowning
but it was a kissing scene so (laughs) he had to pretend, like, it was a pleasant, sweet moment for him, when in fact he was semi-drowning, and then the only way he could
breathe was through his mouth and then I had him kiss Kirsten. They seemed to do very well with it. It was more about trickery
of the mask itself. We couldn’t really get
that look on the mask and have it be pliable, so
it really wouldn’t pull up and down, and we had to
pretend as though it were. But Kirsten’s doing a little
bit of sleight of hand that helps sell the idea
that she actually pulled the mask down. It was a lot of technical
aspects but fortunately Kirsten and Toby are so convincing that they made that all invisible. – [Jeff] I felt the pressure
that the genre was in trouble. Hollywood was soured on the
superhero film around 1999. I honestly in my heart
think that this movie and how Sam did it absolutely
set the tone of how a comic book movie should be made. – [Sam] I love Stan Lee’s
work and I was trying to be true to it, and if
people recognize from those Spider-Man movies that his
stories were really effective, then I’m proud. (dramatic music)
