We were lucky to shoot this with Max Verstappen and Christian Horner a couple of days after winning the 2021 F1 Drivers Championship. We built a photographic exhibition from scratch in one of Red Bull Racing’s warehouses in Milton Keynes, and let the two of them wander through it and chat.
Massive thanks to our crew on this one – there were lots of challenges, and a few late substitutions due to Omicron, but between all of us we got it done!

Brother Film is a creative production company, founded by brothers.
From making skate films on VHS as kids, Brother has developed into a production company based in Peckham, London. With a small core team and a tight network of world-class directors and crew, we pride ourselves on delivering creative work with good people.
We love seeing a concept through from idea generation to the final file upload, but are equally adept at jumping into a project at any stage.
Peckham is a big part of Brother’s DNA, and we started up a local event series, Peckham Filmmakers, to link up local creatives and hero their work.
Our sister company Brother Music is an award-winning music and sound studio, creating bespoke scores and soundscapes for both Brother’s work and a range of other directors, agencies and production companies.
We’re still enthusiastic skater kids at heart, and want that to bleed through into everything we do.
