R.S.V.P.H.R.H exhibition

March 14th, 2011

A couple of weeks ago we were asked to be part of this exhibition by Nick and Clark. The brief was to design Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding Invite, or Big Willie and Babykin’s as they call each other.

We can’t say much at this stage as it’ll ruin the surprise at the exhibition but expect flying shitting Corgis, Kanye’s member gift wrapped and The Ghost of the Queen Mother. Some great artists are involved so should be good fun.

Youth Music

August 24th, 2009

We recently completed this little promotional viral for Silent Studios to promote the Youth Music Box, an impressive new installation at the Royal Festival Hall.

It takes the form of a high tech walk-in studio masquerading as a big white box. The idea is that people of all ages can turn up and create live music with no previous musical experience or skills via the cleverly constructed knobs, dials and keyboards.

After all their hard work realising such a massive project, Silent Studios came to us to create this promotional viral to advertise the piece to clients and public alike.

We got our friend illustrator Chris Haughton on board to provide an abstract visual interpretation to the script, which we then animated. Silent Studios were so pleased with the collaboration they also asked Chris to provide a new logo for the whole project.

After its stint in London, the box is off touring the country. Check it out if you can!

Rediff – StuffSong

‘Just your stuff’

A singing rubber duck, a newspaper dog, dancing keys, trumpeting elephant bookends, a musical cricket ball, flying envelopes and a man in a silky red dressing gown, just your average day then. That was our quest from BBH for, an Indian search engine rebranding its website. It was our first step into directing a predominantly live action commercial. The brief was to utilise as many animation styles and techniques as possible bringing a guys ‘stuff’ to life as it sings and dances to Jackie Wilsons ‘Your Love, is Lifting me Higher’. The live action was shot on a location in North London lovingly decorated to look like a flat in Mumbai, the stop motion animation was shot in a separate location in South London in just two days, while post production was provided spiffingly by The Mill. A really great team helped to pull this all together in a very short time frame with results we were really happy with.

Its officially recession time.. but have a prosperous chinese new year anyway!

A gratuitous little film made to celebrate the coming of the Ox, with audio assistance from Resonate (make sure your sound is turned on to experience the wind in your hair…).

Unwanted #1

“Hot & Cold”, a project which we developed last summer. Unfortunately the campaign never made it to the screen, and these chaps were resigned to our very own animation graveyard.


October 26th, 2008

Fresh off the Frater press this week is our promo for New Zealand popster Ladyhawke (aka Pip Brown) and her latest single, “My Delirium”. Working with Pip’s friend and artist, Sarah Larnach, we hope to have created an animated video that reflects her layered watercolour painting style; intertwined with live action of Pip mooching about in a seedy american motel. Now showing in WORK.

You can see more of Sarah’s illustration work here.

Also to look out for in the coming weeks is the debut of our short film teaser, Grub. Stay tuned for more on that very soon…
