Lore&Jun and Alasdair + Jock have just finished working with Smile for London on their new moving image exhibition “Word In Motion” that aims to uplift and inspire commuters with poetry and moving images during January 2012.
Smile for London invited new and established poets to submit work that has been turned into 20 second typographic films by leading motion artists. The finished silent projections are to be shown across 60 screens on the underground with an expected 1.5 million commuters seeing each video.
Trunk has produced two of the films, Lore&Jun worked with the talented poet Courttia Newland, and Alasdair + Jock worked with poet Nikesh Shulka’s witty vibes.
Daniel Pemberton very kindly composed some music for Lore&Jun’s piece which really pulls everything together nicely, and Aaron Lampert got involved with some sound design for Alasdair + Jock.

We’re all very pleased today here in the studio, we have two of our music videos in the BBC Music Video Festival currently being held in Norwich, Alasdair and Jocks video for Clinic called Bubblegum, and Layla and Grigoris’s video for Elbow in which they collaborated with the fantastic Oliver East. What make’s today all the more fun was that Richard our producer got called in to do an interview yesterday, being a Norfolk boy himself, they thought it was appropriate to ask him a few questions, thankfully all about making music videos and what they mean to Trunk. Look at his little face!

Here’s a still from Alasdair and Jock latest job, an animated backdrop for the award-winning Zac Brown Band at this year’s CMT Awards. The band performed their song “Knee Deep” against the simple backdrop which complemented the physical set built for the band. Rok Predin took the backdrop into 3d to add a cloth effect when it unfurled across the five huge screens behind the band and continues to waft gently throughout the song.
The work was commissioned by Sam Pattinson at Treatment studios and was turned around in under a week.

The video has be shown in over 50 film festivals world wide and won numerous awards.
