1. David Blaine approached us to make an animated intro for his latest magic special, a palette cleanser to get people excited for a bumpy night ahead. Inspired by David’s mind-bending magic and the Paul Auster penned script which was voiced by Christopher Walken in the style of a side-show barker, we crafted a hero’s journey of sorts, a psychedelic trip into the spectacle of the real.

  5. After miraculously surviving a stabbing attack, Hananel David is faced with overcoming his PTSD to become a paramedic and pass along the gift of life that has been given to him.

    As violence sadly continues to rage on in the Middle East and throughout the world I hope that people are able to turn their heads to the helpers risking their lives and putting others before themselves. Rather than focusing on the hate, I believe it's this kind of selfless kindness that we need to focus on spreading in order to begin to heal this world.
