ODD created all the animations seen in the award winning documentary "Blackfish".
Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite
Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multi-billion dollar sea-park industry.
This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

The Crash Reel follows the rise and fall of Kevin Pearce's snowboarding career and
exposes the irresistible, yet potentially fatal, appeal of extreme sports. At his athletic
peak, Kevin was known as "the man who could beat Shaun White" in the 2010
Olympics. But his path changed drastically after a training accident in Park City, Utah
that left him in a coma with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). As he struggles with his "new normal", Kevin finds new successes in life and devotes himself to raising awareness of "invisible injuries", which are so pervasive in extreme sports today. Stunning action footage shows the drama and the fearlessness behind every trick in intimate detail, making it impossible to ignore the danger that is inherent in these defying moves.
This Winter, The Crash Reel is opening in theaters in the U.S. and Canada and we
would love your support. Together with Kevin Pearce and his family, The Crash Reel
can galvanize athletes, parents, and everyone in between behind the message of
#loveyourbrain. With the support of high performing athletes combined with a highly
emotional and yet inspiring story, The Crash Reel has the potential to change attitudes
about helmets, brain injuries, and safety in the world of extreme sports.

On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with NEW YORK magazine calling the event "a marvel of pure craft" and TIME magazine lamenting "we may never dance again." SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
