We joined forces with The Royals to create animations for the 360 screens that wrap around the courts at the Australian Open. We designed around the various doorways and gaps in the screen, fully integrating the work into the 3 stadiums. Our stories follow an Orange which bounces, dips, rolls and flips through quintessentially summery scenes, making it’s way to it’s rightful home - a glass of Aperol Spritz. Plop. Fizz. Gulp.

We think we're nearly there on this. It’d be great to get your thoughts/comments and of course, let us know if you spot anything obviously wrong.
This was an experimental film put together simply as an opportunity to have a play in-between projects. After much deliberation we set ourselves a brief to create a collection of scenarios subverting the physical properties of...anything. It made for some interesting comments along the way. “That egg’s not bouncy enough, the cloth coming out of the tap needs to feel more like water, the bowling ball needs to feel heavier as it floats off…”. We suddenly realised we were playing our own client (hence the in-joke above) This is FauxPhysics_09_FINAL_V16_ForApproval_FINAL_withAudio_FINAL_1.mov ;·)
We've started lots of these projects over the years. This rare creature is one that's finally found its way out of the studio. And no, it wasn’t at all annoying to see this peach vimeo.com/191444383 appear on Vimeo half way through the process. ◔_◔
All produced in Maya 2017, rendered in Vray and composited in After Effects.
How do we follow our festive short "More Stuff"? We make a short that follows it!
Continuing the theme of parodies onwards from animated musicals, we made an epic action movie trailer full of movie parodies... can you spot all 20 references? Movie coming soon... if Santa brings us a few $million for Christmas!
