Madness- Our House

The Brand Shop

Here is another lovely piece of work by Trunk’s directing duo Sebas&Clim. The Brand Shop, an advertising agency based in Rome, commissioned the guys to create a story detailing the agencies marketing abilities. They wanted to represent these skills in a friendly and relatable way.

Sebas &Clim decided to represent the agency as a pâtissière with the client as a cupcake, which has lost market share. The cupcake has a discussion with the pâtissière who distils their ideas and continuing with the baking metaphor cooks up a successful campaign. Using the baking theme throughout enables The Brand Shops marketing concept to be clearly communicated with out being dry or stuffy. A pastel palette and wonderful sound design by Flow Audio echoes the friendly feel of the short.

Dun and dusted

Hooray! Richard did the Dunwich Dynamo in a cool 10 hours, had a kip on the beach, got the bus home then went for a roast dinner…..and a curry. Well done old chapdd

Dunwich Dynamo 2012

Our intrepid producer Richard Barnett will be riding in this year’s Dunwich Dynamo tomorrow evening. It’s a mammoth 120 mile bike ride from East London out to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast starting at 8 o clock in the evening and riding overnight to arrive at the coast at dawn. Best of luck Richie. Ride like the wind (and eat plenty of bananas)

Sebas&Clim-Sparkle

Our directing duo Sebas&Clim has just created four beautiful shorts for Telecom Italia Group.
Each short followed the agency’s brief of communicating each one of ‘TI Sparkles’, the international division of Italia Telecom, key strengths such as reliability and connectivity in an emotional way. Sebas & Clim’s resulting shorts answer the brief perfectly. Using a fresh pallete and simple friendly forms the animations communicate the companies strengths in a charming and joyful manner. In each one a cute ball representing the caller is helped by ‘TI Sparkles’ wires to negotiate a challenging landscape. A delightful soundtrack by Flow Audio perfectly synchronized to the animations carries the viewer along on each journey. The shorts bring to mind a previous work by Sebas& Clim called ‘Tiny Story’ and anyone who has seen that is going to love these four new shorts.
The animations will be shown during Italia Telecom’s international conference in Chicago before appearing on their website and multiple social media channels.

A Liar’s Autobiography

Last night we went to see a preview of “A Liar’s Autobiography” the film based on the life of Graham Chapman from Monty Python. It’s entirely animated and in stereoscopic 3D. It was made by 13 different animation production companies in London and the US. We spent lots of last year working on a little 7 minute section of it. You can read more about the film here. It’s certainly worth seeing if you’re a huge Monty Python fan.

Here’s the thing

We’ve been getting a lot of attention for our projections we did for Madness at the Jubilee Concert, this is great and we are all very flattered but don’t forget that we were only a tiny, tiny part of a HUGE production. We were commissioned by Sam Pattinson of Treatment for the two Madness songs but he also commissioned many other highly talented animators and compositors for other projections. Among them were Damian Hale, Mark Hough, Terry Scruby, Gareth Blayney, Luke Halls and David Shepard, they deseve as much attention as we got as all the projections were really impressive. Also freelance lighting programmer Luke Collins managed to light up every single “la” in the chorus of Crocodile Rock. The amazing folks at D3 made the projections look wonderful and Geoff Posner at the BBC came up with the Our House concept for the Madness visuals and also directed the whole show and made it look fantastic on television. It was truly a team effort, everyone worked really hard and deserves a lot of credit.

Blimey

Well here’s a turn-up, our producer Richard Barnett will be on BBC breakfast tomorrow morning to talk about our projections for the Queen’s Jubilee Concert. He’s winging his way up to Manchester as we speak. He should be on around 8.45. Good luck Richard, don’t forget to comb your hair. Here we all are last night having a blastposse

Hello Yellow Brick Road
