The night we hung out with Duran Duran. Here are a few snaps of the book launch and exhibition party in London’s Carnaby Street. Our Fu & Ross made Denis O’Regan’s photos move using a parallax technique or 2.5D for the show. Pretty pleased with ourselves today!
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.
Woa! Parties really ‘ain’t wot they used to be’! Or are they?
Last night Bastard Bunny launched his new comic at The Book Club. We had T-shirts, posters, bunnies, The Mighty Booth, Richard Fearless, book signings, Mark Ratcliff, a Bastard Buffet, dancing, booze and who know what happened after the small hours!
One things for sure, we’re all rather fragile today but more importantly the books sold out! Wahey!
Just need to find the Bastard to tell him… hiding in some London boozer we expect.
Annoyed with your boozer changing its ways? Had enough of gastro this and gastro that? Well check out last night’s premiere of Bastard Bunny - Boozers Ain’t Wot They Used To Be on Channel 4’s Random Acts here!
The Mighty Booth will also be in situ for your photographic pleasure. And BB Rabbitphernalia from the 90s (the laptop hats, the classic T shirts) will be available for you to truly Bastardise your night and wowzer your friends.
As a bonus, and for one night only, the book will be on sale for half price - £5 only!
So burrow on down and get the rabbit habit and register your attendance on FaceBook or Eventbrite.
What a brilliant evening of live music and animation at the award-winning Forge in Camden. Bought together by the ANIMA Live collective, we created an atmospheric piece to a composition by Aaron Holloway-Nahum, you can watch it here! Make sure your sound is on as our character responds to the notes of the violin.
This Thursday (19th) a unique animation and live music collaboration will take place at The Forge in Camden. ANIMA Live combines the two disciplines in a unique environment showcasing emerging composers and animators. We’ve teamed up with Aaron Holloway-Nahum on an atmospheric piece and cannot wait to see what the others create!
Publicis Chemistry commissioned us to create animated ads for Visa. The ‘Win Your First’ campaign asks what first time experience would we want? Be it breakfast in New York or surfing in Hawaii, we created simple line work depicting potential once in a life time ‘firsts’.
We managed to capture (albeit super quickly) the ads at Waterloo station this weekend. Nice.
Team Bar Shorts catch up with film maker/music maker Josie Jones who recently completed a series of films to accompany the adapted 1989 Imperfect List. They’ll beshowing one of them on 23rd September at The Book Club in Shoreditch. The updated prose set to music by Big Hard Excellent Fish will also be released on the same day by One Little Indian. Based around the ills of man it is a sobering and important piece of film.
Here they ask her some not so serious questions about film, pubs and the worst decision she ever made…
Anyone would think we’re always at lunch but we do work REALLY hard and that’s the truth! We were actually wishing Raph a farewell here, he’s off back to Switzerland to take the world of coding by the nuts and make it understandable. We just wanted to say that it has been a pleasure to have him around the studio so we celebrated at Belgo’s.
Here’s the food rundown… the mussels were great, as were the beers, mini 12foot6-er Olivia and big 12foot6-er John enjoyed some colouring in, Fu’s steak was NOT up up scratch and he knows his steak, Alicja felt the need to wear a bib and was rather proud of it, Ana & Phoebe got a little too excited about the burgers and Matt found himself a Slag… a beer that is… and we have proof.
Check out the new title sequence for our Dog Judo series. The guys & gals cruise around Camden Town’s dark streets causing all sorts of trouble. The brand new theme tune is mighty addictive too so watch out!
