knife crime film

This is the last thing Alfie and I had made together, a knife crime film to highlight the risks involved in carrying a knife. Inspired by the artist BLU, we painted on walls around the parts of Glasgow with worst knife crime and used stop animation to bring it to life. The music is by Pllum, a local artist who is also a part of the ever growing Leith Records. Was a few months of blood sweat and a few tears (mainly alfie's) but we're pretty happy with the result. Thanks to Ink animation in Dundee for all their hard work n all.

Barr's Idents

More idents! This isn't all we do, honestly.

After several months in production, hoops jumped through and compliance issues overcome (sort of), our Barr's idents finally saw the light of day yesterday. They're sponsoring 'The Hour' show, a magazine tv show presented by the 'cuddly' Michelle Mcmanus.

There are several different variations on these, all for different flavours/occasions, all of which have been tweaked and tinkered with for what seems like eternity. I've only just stopped waking up in the middle of the night screaming about my kaleidoscope-induced nightmares.

This is an example of one of the 15 second openers, of which there are numerous combinations. This one is The Park/The Beach/Ice Cream Van.

Going to try and blog more as it's the 'cool' thing to do apparently. Have some pretty exciting work which will hopefully be released soon.

Enjoy!

PS. Probably best not to look at it if you're epileptic or easily excited by bright spinny colours.

IRN-BRU Idents

Well... This is our first post for 8 or 9 months I think... (you can make a new person in that amount of time). Just thought I'd post a bit of work we've recently finished. This isn't the only piece of work we've done in the last 9 months I'd hasten to add, just been far too lazy to blog AND work. These are two 15 second idents for IRN-BRU sponsoring the Rugby Super League on Sky Sports, incase you didn't twig that from the voiceover at the end. There are 8 other 5 second idents but didn't think anyone would really want to see them... video
