Katie was one of eight aerialists cast in the new Sony online commercial for the Xperia T3 phone, directed by Martin Abildgaard.

“A beautifully crafted, beautifully slim phone.”

Alex Poulter choreographed a mechanical, angular and energetic set of sequences for us to perform on silks rigged to a carousel structure, which rotated past the camera to create a more abstract image of aerial circus.

Joe Hull from High Performance was head rigger for the advert, and designed a counter-balance system for us to form a long, slim totem pole of bodies which morphed into the side of the phone.
