We’ve been maintaining radio silence for a while here at Trunk towers but don’t worry! things are happening. Layla’s been at the scissors, Rok’s populating the world with 3d characters and Jock is learning how to accurately model nipples.
If anyone is at a loose end this Saturday Richard and Layla will be presenting some of Trunk’s work and running an animation workshop at the Chisenhale Gallery in Hackney. Why not come along and try to distract us? For more information click the link
Boom! We can finally show you the lyric video we recently made for Lily Allen’s latest track “Air Balloon”. This was directed by Alasdair+Jock with illustration by Jock Mooney and animation by Alasdair Brotherston, Pedro Lino and Layla Atkinson. We turned this around in just over a week, it was an intense few days but the final product is just gorgeous.
Our directors Lore&Jun finished this just before Christmas. It’s a short piece to help the launch of an amazing new science museum that’s being built in an old soap factory in Luanda, Angola.
We rounded off last year by once again working with our Belgian friends Thijs and Wouter from Volstok. We animated their latest commercial for Weightwatchers Belgium. Layla led the animation team of Martin Oliver, Jon Clarke, Nick Brooks and Leslie Dart. We hope this proves to be inspiration to chubby Belgians everywhere!
We were very happy to have just completed our most recent collaboration with Cummins, designers and manufacturers of sustainable and greener power generation equipment.
Trunk’s Layla Atkinson was responsible for illustrating the wallpapers for the company’s stand at the Busworld Show 2013 and also directing the animation intro for the new website!
If anyone’s in London on the 2nd of November and feels like soaking up the wisdom of a great animation guru why not pop along the our producer Richard’s panel discussion at this year’s London International Animation Festival. The talk in entitled “How to Become a Ten Year Old” and it’s about how on earth a small animation company like Trunk (and Lupus and Munky) can survive the swirling maelstrom of chaos that is the animation industry for ten years. What is the secret Richard? Tell us oh great one. I think some interesting stuff may come up. You can find more details at this link
