We all know that muesli contains a ton of sugar. We know this but as it is full of goodness we don’t want to admit it. Well, the clever squirrels at The Muesli have created a 97% sugar free recipe and asked us to create some funny shorts to show you.
Our Matt animated a handful of tasty nuts in a series of films aimed to amuse and educate.
Check out this little embroidery thread stop-motion teaser our Jules created for the Royal Institution. On each day of advent the RI will reveal a brand new entertaining short all about the complex subject. Watch the trailer for their ‘ambitious video journey through the human genome’here!
We have been busy messing around with photographs! Not just any photos either…
We’ve been working with legendary rock photographer Denis O’Regan on his latest exhibition just off Carnaby Street in London. Having shot the likes of Bowie and The Rolling Stones, the focus of this show is Duran Duran’s record breaking 1984 ‘Sing Blue Silver’ tour.
Coinciding with the launch of his new coffee table book ‘Careless Memories’ the exhibition will showcase a selection of intimate, unseen and unique photographs of the boys.
Keeping true to O’Regan’s dynamic approach to photography we have added movement and depth to a selection of his photographs. Using Photoshop and After Effects in a process called ‘parallax technique’ or ‘2.5D’ we have ‘animated’ aspects of the shots. A selection of screens and projectors in the show will loop the content and one rear projector screen in the window will omit the moving photographs on to the street.
Go see for yourself at 15 Foubert’s Place London W1F 7QB.
Chaps and chapettes! For those not in animation but into animation you can now learn how to make ‘a cartoon in After Effects’. Designed for beginners by the funny and talented Ross Plaskow, here is your tutorial!
(BTW, he says ‘tutorial’ in a strange way with too focus on the ‘tu’, if you ignore that this is a very good film)
Bastard Bunny creator and 12Foot6er Dave Anderson set up stall (literally) at last weekend’s Comic Con in Birmingham. Would there be any crossover between a 1990s retro punk rabbit and a warehouse full of trekkies, storm troopers and every conceivable incarnation of Dr Who? Not much as it turned out. But a lot of fun was had and the big fat rabbit most certainly stood out from the crowd. Eat paw!
So in light of current news of a certain new character in the hit series Family Guy, we’d like to remind you of the original gangster dog - Joey Gagglio voiced by The Soprano’s star Joey Pantoliano. Made back in 2011, Dog Judo’s Roy & Rexley get all in a scary tether when their new exchange student arrives.
Ladies and gentlemen! Behold! The fat and forty Bastard Bunny in Boozers Ain’t Wot They Used To Be. If you missed the TV premiere of the animation on Channel 4’s Random Acts, here it is in its comedic glory.
Incidentally, if you happen to be heading to Comic Con in Birmingham this weekend you can meet writer, Dave Anderson, and get a signed copy of the comic.
An animated tale of love in a uni life class written and directed by Chris Shepherd. We (Barry Evans, Ana Garcia & Fu) had the pleasure of animating the witty short from designs by Jim Medway. The funny animation premiered on Channel 4’s Random Acts on 17th October.
