1. Power of the tire is a satirical piece depicting the current political and economical situation in Lebanon. It is meant to be satirical and does not reflect a real situation, but a personal interpretation.

    Regarding this piece, it all started after watching Buck's Take part / waiting for superman trailer, which seemed to have the exact tone for what we wanted. Some of the copy was so good and served our message that we had to use it.
    Regarding the visuals, buck's piece (Jr Canest's style) is a huge inspiration for experimenting and learning motion graphics. So the intro which is almost identical started as an exercise/study in smooth keyframing, and as the piece took shape, we decided to keep it and give a credit to Jr Canest's inspiring work. You can also find below a list for our inspiration for this piece. Hope you enjoy it.

  4. The summer of 2012 is going to be hotter than a billy goat in a pepper patch here in California and that could mean electricity shortages as people try and stay cool. To avoid those pesky blackouts, we partnered with Brainchild to pump out these nifty PSAs that educate the public about the Flex Alert program and also alert Californians when one is called. So next time you are sitting all cool and comfortable on a hot day you can say “thanks Buck.”

  5. Through creative, kinetic typography and slick, dynamic animations this short public service announcement for Habitat for Humanity explains that it's easy for anyone to achieve something big.

    Hard work is the key to success for most of the areas of life. For low-income families it can make a big difference, by providing them with simple, decent, and affordable housing.

    'Elbow Grease' seeks to convey the rewards of working hard and making a significant and sustained impact by joining Habitat in their cause.
