Chess & Games Consultant for TV, film and fashion shoots

Promotional photo shoot for “Good Omens”. Photograph by BA High Life Magazine

We were approached by British Airways High Life Magazine to provide them with an artist-painted chess set and to advise them on the set up of the pieces. The photograph above features a one-off Art Chess set by Sophie Matisse. In order to reference the plot of the Amazon Prime series “Good Omens” – a six-part series about the approaching Armageddon and the unlikely teaming up of a demon and an angel (played by David Tennant and Michael Sheen respectively) in a fight to save the world – the arrangement of pieces was inspired by the famous “Immortal Game”.
