Leeds based agency Propaganda approached us to create a TV commercial to mark the launch of their product.
We brought in the brilliant Pete Mellor to direct this 30 second spot. Filled with humour and energy this new spot is a master class in timing and pace. Spencer Wilson’s beautiful crisp illustrations worked with The Car Buying Service’s compact colour palette to help create a very clear and appealing film. Pete noted “It was great to work with Propaganda, helping them develop the initial story board and whilst it would have been very easy to over-complicate the animation by keeping it simple with a straight forward car journey it kept the message clear” The script was voiced by the brilliant Ade Edmondson, sounding nothing like Vivian from The Young Ones, a blessing for any company based on trust and fairness.
Composer Ivan Arnold created the perfect score while the sound design and mix was by J.M Finch at Fonic. Pedro Lino at Trunk Animation oversaw the whole production.
Our uber-prolific director and friend Rok Predin has made a great new film. It is a nostalgic ode to childhood based on his memories of growing up in 1980s Slovenia. In keeping with our aim of getting our directors to produce their own work alongside working on commercial projects we gave Rok two months of studio time to work exclusively on the film.
“It was wonderful to just dive into this project with no constraints and expectations and just enjoy exploring and playing with the software,” said Rok. “As the animatic had already set the rhythm, flow and pace for the film, the two months I had were spent like a painter enjoying the creative process, and like a ‘one man band’ I loved exploring all the various aspects of the films production, from modelling to compositing and editing the final shots together.”
