Process

How do you do that? Well if you don’t know now you know! We’re obsessed with inventing novel solutions for projects, reaching for in-camera techniques where possible. Bet when you came here you didn’t expect to see tomato puppettiers.

FS8Brand Launch

Epic music video vibes created through a combination of…

468 panel circular array of LED screens    +   8k resolution    +   motion design lighting    +  trusty mobility scooter   +   full CG previs    +   that guy who punched a shark

KmartSleight of Hand

While we use loads of different techniques to make magic on the regular, this Kmart commercial is particularly trickery-fuelled. Tricks include…

Puppeteered props (strings & sticks & slidey things)  +  sleight of hand match-cuts  +  10mm ultra wide lens  +  humans on a circular dolly  +  CG set extensions  +  full 3D previs  +  CG look development  +  an entire commercial test shoot

Lost & Found

A stop-motion labor of love that tugs at the heart strings using…

Frame by frame animation   +   custom built motion-controlled robots   +   cute crochet characters   +   acetate sacks of stop motion water (less gross than it sounds)   +   four year production.
