Maybe you already got an idea of the fact that there is something special about this video we made for Bastille Day, the French National Day.

It can help in many other scenarios where you search for shots that contain a certain color. Just try it yourself.

Now it’s out: the son of Prince William and Kate is called George Alexander Louis. To prepare him for his future “Royal Baby” tasks, we unveil a video of his granduncle Prince Andrew at Balmoral Castle in October 1960. It’s an example of great sovereignty – but we are certain that George Alexander Louis will behave in no way inferior to his granduncle when it comes to representation…
