  2. Hider 2 is a Mac app that hides all kinds of files and textual data. We don't always produce animated videos for desktop software, but when we do, we make sure it is a fun one. Actually, this was our first stab at a more character-based, cinematic video.

  3. Project: La Sangre De Porsche
    Client: Frame.dk / Mobil1 & Porsche
    Music and Sound Design: Box Of Toys Audio

    BACKGROUND /
    In this co-branded live action, VFX and animation short, Mobil1 Motor Oil awakens the raw power of Porsche in the form of a mechanised bull. The campaign was brought together by Danish super group Frame and Ghost VFX.

    APPROACH /
    With eye candy a plenty, we were spoilt for choice when it came to the sound design. The film opens with a moody product shot that quickly moves up through the gears as the structure of the bull is formed. The sound looks to capture the right balance of heavy mechanics and hi-tech mechanisms to reflect the elements of power and finesse embodied by the Mobil1 and Porsche brands.

    A hard-hitting combination of orchestral and electronic music builds from the introduction of the bull through to the resolve. Key moments are synced to a pounding rhythm, elevating the drama up until the tag line reveal.

  4. Project: Dual
    Client: Blue-Zoo Animation
    Music and Sound Design: Box Of Toys Audio

    BACKGROUND /
    The animaniacs over at Blue Zoo Animation Studio have conjured up this self-initiated Sci-Fi Thriller short. We were lucky enough to be given the task of creating the soundtrack.

    APPROACH /
    Despite the urge to reflect the undercurrent of 70’s Sci Fi / Western in the visuals, we decided that the vibrant, detailed colours of the animation would benefit from being set off against a dark edge. The villain of the story certainly required a sense of the sinister and by building over time with a throbbing synth line, broken radio comms and noise we were able to raise the tension and assist in the impact of the resolve. The radio message itself was recorded in the studio and run through all manner of nonsense in our Doepfer Analogue Modular system to obtain a unique sound.

  5. Project: Jack Morton Turns 75
    Client: Jack Morton
    Music and Sound Design: Box Of Toys Audio

    BACKGROUND /
    Executive Producer Hugh Ip brings together an all-star motion ensemble for Jack Morton's 75th anniversary. This short movie reminds us of why Jack Morton remains at the forefront of modern brand experiences.

    APPROACH /
    In celebration of another year of JM, we composed an uptempo track that would translate well across multiple visuals styles - we found the common denominator was the positive energy and humour throughout that helped bind it as a coherent piece. Where music worked as a glue, sound design picks out the individuality of each scene and breathes life into each character.
