Pulse directors D.A.R.Y.L first worked with Katy Perry when directing a T-Mobile commercial in which she starred, produced by the Pulse Advertising department.
6 months later at the start of 2011, when Katy embarked on her
worldwide California Dreams
Tour she asked Ed Lovelace and James Hall (D.A.R.Y.L.) to begin capturing an
unrestricted film document of her life throughout the tour both,
professional and personal. From first tour rehearsals in LA,
through Europe, the UK, Japan, Mexico, South America and the US, Ed
and James gained an incredible level of trust and access, which
allowed them to document not only the access-all areas story of the
global tour from Katy's perspective, but a genuine and raw portrait
of a person during the most turbulent and transformational part of
Self-shot on the Arri Alexa, Ed and James established a
distinctive, highly cinematic look and filming style, whilst the
footage has an intimacy that goes far beyond a traditional
behind-the-scenes tour filming.
Throughout the year, edits of the content were released as short
web-episodes from each leg of the tour, keeping fans all over the
world engaged with the tour from thousands of miles away. At
the same time footage was being captured with the intention of
forming the basis of a long-form documentary piece.
This documentary footage, including candid interviews with Katy,
her friends, family, crew, dancers and band, combined with 3D
concert footage shot at the Staples Centre in LA, now forms the
basis of a spectacular theatrical feature film Katy Perry: Part of
Me 3D, to be released worldwide in July 2012 by Paramount Pictures,
produced by Academy Award ® winner Brian Glazer of Imagine
Entertainment and Katy's management team. Together with Craig
Brewer (Hustle and Flow Director) Ed and James are Executive
Producers on the project, whilst Thomas Benski (Pulse CEO) and Dan
Bowen (Pulse Head of Music) are Co-Producers on the project.

To the mark the launch of MySpace Music BBH and Pulse Films' directing duo DARYL teamed up to create a cacophony of content. It's a rocking rapper's delight as Florence + the Machine, 50 Cent and Nelly Furtado unpack their playlists and sing along to their favourite tracks.
