1. A Soup Factory project by Tundra* and Andersen M Studio

    Soup Factory are very proud to finally be able to share with you the second set of films in the animated ident series for ITV3. Five months in the making and made entirely in-house, from boards to final master, we hope you will love them as much as we do.

    The idents were directed by Soup Factory's Espen Haslene, head honcho of TUNDRA*, alongside Martin M Andersen from Andersen M Studio. Together Espen and Martin have a wealth of experience in model making, stop-frame animation using paper and compositing and CGI, making them the ideal team to deliver this set of visually arresting, human-crafted animations.

    The idea for the idents came from the concept of 'collections.'

    Creative director Tony Pipes and executive producer Jen Lane from ITV, called in Soup Factory to pitch on their Story Collections brief. Espen asked old friend and fellow Nordic-super animator Martin along to collaborate and work swiftly began creating a full-sized, paper-cut prototype 'set' to present, along with a killer pitch.

    After the job was awarded, Soup Factory set up a new studio to house the two animation houses in Shoreditch, with a plan to be able to undertake every aspect of the animation process in-house. With the first six films delivered and work already begun on the next six, the studio hasn't looked back.

    The drama content on ITV3 forms a rich and diverse collection of programs. It was important to reflect the craft and detail that goes into the making of these dramas and celebrate their quality and values. This is why the directors wanted the idents to be handcrafted and to have an intrinsically human touch to them, 'we wanted to be able to see the fingerprints that had made the work, so, like the dramas themselves; they were beautiful, real and believable.' Together Martin, Espen and their team made a collection of hand made paper cut-out stories, all lovingly housed within the ITV3 bell jars.

  2. Tundra* was commissioned to direct and animate (in stereoscopic 3D) the nightmare chapter for this animated feature film.

    Our animation deals with how Graham was struggling to cope with his alcoholism and his sexuality. We mixed techniques such as classic cell aniamation with hand painted cards and put it all together in the computer and made it 3D sterescopic. It was a mad way of working as no-one had ever done this before - but we found our way and really look forward to sharing this with you at the London Film Festival Gala screening on the 16th October!

    Graham Chapman, probably best remembered as 'the dead one from Monty Python', writes and stars in the animated movie of his own life story, A LIAR'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Although Chapman selfishly dropped dead in 1989, he had taken the trouble to record himself reading his book, A Liar's Autobiography -- and those recordings have now ingeniously been used to provide Chapman's voice for the 3D animated feature of the same name. Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam also turn up, playing themselves and other characters, along with a few surprise guests.

  4. Tundra & Colin O'Toole wrote, co-directed and animated this high-end corporate commercial for Nissan is a walk-thru of the history and conceptual stages of the new Nissan GTR. Filmed in a photographic studio we set up four corners on each end of the room. Each corner representing a important stage in the process of the development of the new Nissan: ideas and history, design, engineering and final product.
