In January 2010, we sat together in earnest to look back at years of working together. We wanted to rediscover our inspirations for getting into the industry and identify the things that were killing our inspiration. We talked about what stories we had to tell and what emotions we wanted people to feel. We all agreed that our best work had yet to be conceived. Out of that conversation was born the idea of creating a visual manifesto. Each statement in this manifesto is a short work that stands on its own, but together the collection of works will form a vision of who we are and where our passions lie. Each of the works is also conceived and led by one of the artists on our team, who pitches it to the group. The work is then executed with the support of the entire studio.
The first of these works, entitled 'SEED' is now complete. Our longtime collaborator John Black of Cypheraudio: cypheraudio.com worked closely with us early on in the process to help establish the mood of the piece. As the visuals evolved, so too did the sound, going through several re-inventions before settling on the final. Please Check back to this page for more installments in this series of works!
