"'My Weekend With Miss Banbury Cross' is an exquisite film," says LIMEY Owner/EP Andrew Denyer. "Easy on the eye and with beautiful imagery, the film shows the emotion and ardor that Graeme likes to bring to his commercial work."
"I've known Matt for many years", adds LIMEY's Graeme Joyce. "When this opportunity came up to shoot a short film for the magazine's web site, it was a great way for Matt and I to collaborate, something we've often talked about. I wanted the film to play like a love letter so we decided on utilizing the romantic nature of 16mm film. As 'Men's File' is a heritage magazine that traces the roots of style, I decided to shoot with a Bolex H16 camera for the inherent vintage feel the camera provides, a texture that suits not only the magazine's aesthetic but also Miss Banbury Cross, her essence, look and performance."
"One of the biggest challenges when working in film is cutting through the endless production layers and portraying a narrative that engages emotionally," concludes Hind. "Graeme's instinct and intelligent approach enabled us to create something uncluttered and simply stunning."

Bio: Director Graeme Joyce:
Director Graeme Joyce was raised in The Cotswolds, the heart of the English countryside. After a stint at art school, a summer visit to Los Angeles sparked an interest and a career in visual media. During time spent on the city's commercial sets, Graeme shot some footage of a friend's band using a Bolex hand-cranked camera. Lip-sync was fudged in post and the resulting spec was seen by Scott Weiland who hired Joyce to direct two clips for his band Stone Temple Pilots. The Music Video Producer Association (MVPA) awarded the "Directorial Debut Award" to the band's video "Wicked Garden" directed by Graeme. With a loving memory of British adverts from his childhood as an inspiration, Graeme's exquisite design sensibility and flair for storytelling led him into commercials, directing innovative spots for such impressive clients as Target, Mercedes and British Airways. Whatever the medium, Robert Bresson's sentiment notes: "It is with something clean and precise that you will force the attention of inattentive eyes and ears" is an aesthetic approach held in high regard by Graeme. He currently lives in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, with his family.
As the name implies, LIMEY's creative aesthetic is deeply rooted in the U.K with Owner/EP Andrew Denyer combining that aesthetic with his extensive experience in the U.S. to form one multi-faceted, boutique production company. With tenures at large production houses such as Propaganda and Headquarters, as well as single director-owned companies such as Big Lawn Films; Denyer has built a unique directorial roster at LIMEY where each director works in a single genre with an individual style. LIMEY's current directorial roster features the talents of Rob Luehrs, Nick Jones, KN+SAW, and Graeme Joyce. An agile boutique, LIMEY also offers the resources of a large production company via its partnership with Chelsea, including an extensive support staff and offices in Los Angles and New York. High-production values, regardless of budget, and a great collaboration for clients are the hallmarks of any LIMEY-produced project.
