2012 Well here it is…

January 25th, 2012

We are busy working on something exciting for 2012, which will be keeping us busy up to our eyeballs into the summer months. Then we will take our eyeballs out, pack them a little suitcase and send them on a holiday to Skeggy.

An all in camera animation affair – or is it???
Yes it is. We animated vignettes and sequences to capture The Staves beautifully melancholic song ‘Mexico’. The animation was a mixture of cut out and hand painted sequences brought to life in After Effects. We then used the skills of our projectionist Jack Banks to manipulate the images around the performance by the excellent Staveley sisters. It was a rather tight budget so we animated it ourselves over a rather intense few weeks. Thanks to all who helped us on this.

We’re very excited to announce we will now be represented by the East London based Production Company ‘Agile Films’ for Commercials, Music Promos, Virals and all things moving.  They have an excellent roster of Directors, a great team of Producers and a good choice of pubs nearby so we’re hoping we’ll fit in comfortably with them all.

Right Royal Shenanigans

April 8th, 2011

Last night saw the RSVPHRH exhibtion in full swing at The Rag Factory just off Brick Lane.

Heres our entry, now unleashed on the British public. All the contributions were printed out nice and big, adorning the walls in varying degrees of cynicism and celebration –  depending on how you like your royalty served.

Thanks to Nick and Clark for organizing it… somehow we didn’t meet them. But cheers chaps, it was grand!

Click to see it bigger and pore over the regal-ness of it all:

BTW: Becks with orange officially tastes like vomit, even if it did only cost £1.50 a bottle.
