Filmed on location at the Sensatori Resort, Jamaica, Miles the Bear tells the story of a young girl and her favourite teddy bear who travel from their home in UK to holiday in Jamaica.

Shot over the course of three days in Jamaica, Enclave Director Tristan Vince lead a small crew to shoot the on-location behind the scenes film and television idents which were to accompany the advertising campaign. Shot on the Red Epic, this presenter-led micro-documentary follows Alex Porter, the face of Thomson Holidays as she takes a look behind the lens in the making of this commercial. With interviews from key actors, and shots from the final commercial, this short documentary follows the action from initial studio shoot in London, to the white sand beaches of Jamaica.
