      We dug through the darkest recesses of our minds and studio to create original music and sound design for this Buck masterpiece. Working with squirming, analog-tape leeches, moaning coeds, screaming guitar goats, and brain-exploding psychedelia, we were certainly in our element. Plus, it's always fun to rock out and get a little weird for a good cause! Good Books, an online bookseller, passes all of its profits through to Oxfam. Our hats go off to Buck and String Theory. Enjoy the trip! Client: Good Books Agency: String Theory Director: Buck Music & Sound Design: Antfood DISCLAIMER: What you will see is an entirely fictional and completely unendorsed representation. [Though we humbly suggest Hunter S. Thompson might have liked it.] We are devoted fans paying homage. No disrespect is intended.

        FILM SYNOPSIS Uganda has been called one of the worst places on earth to be a child. In the South, children face the threat of poverty and disease. In the North, these threats are enflamed by a brutal, mindless war inflicted by the Lord’s Resistance Army (L.R.A.) that has divided families, displaced millions, and led to the abduction and mutilation of tens of thousands of children resulting in the deterioration of identity and culture. Bouncing Cats is the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop with a focus on b-boy culture and breakdance. In 2006, Abraham “Abramz” Tekya, a Ugandan b-boy and A.I.D.S. orphan created Breakdance Project Uganda (B.P.U.). The dream was to establish a free workshop that would empower, rehabilitate and heal the community by teaching youth about b-boy culture. Based in Kampala, Uganda, B.P.U. has recently expanded to include permanent classes in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Abramz teaches classes three times a week to more than 300 kids from all parts of the country. Many of the children are homeless, victims of war and poverty, and few can afford proper schooling yet they walk from miles away to attend the B.P.U. classes. As Abramz says, “This is where many people’s pride is. It’s a skill that no one can take away from us.” Crazy Legs, one of the founding members of the seminal Rock Steady Crew visited Uganda after receiving an invitation from Abramz to teach b-boy classes. What he discovered upon his arrival was both heartbreaking and inspiring. Traveling throughout Uganda, from the southern slums to the war-torn North, Crazy Legs encountered a passion for hip-hop and desire to learn amongst the most squalid conditions. Bouncing Cats follows Abramz, Crazy Legs, and Breakdance Project Uganda on a journey to use hip-hop culture for positive social change. The film features narration by Common and interviews with Mos Def, Will-I-Am, and K’Naan.

                The Mill were truly excited to be working with String Theory in partnership with Oxfam creating 'Havana Heat' the second film (following on from Buck's 'Metamorphosis') in the Good Books 'Great Writers' campaign. The Good Books model is totally unique, 100% of the retail profit from their website goes to support communities in need through Oxfam projects. 'Havana Heat' is a steamy love letter to Good Books in the cleavage-heaving language made famous by Mills & Boon. Luke Colson, Head of Mill Studio explains: "We became involved when New Zealand based creative agency String Theory sent us two wonderfully clever and funny scripts to choose from, and asked us which one we would be interested in bringing to life! We all agreed that we simply had to opt for the Mills and Boon muscle ripping epic and couldn't wait to get stuck in! After deciding on the double entendre filled world of Mills and Boon we were naturally led to the conclusion that our talented French animating-directing duo, mcbess and Simon would bring something really special and saucy to the table."

                      This is 11-year-old Keya's story. She's already experiencing the effects of climate change on her river island in Bangladesh. During the last flood, Keya's family spent over one month living on a raised platform the size of a double bed, whilst their home was under feet of water. "There was so much water; it was up to our knees. We couldn't get out, even if we wanted to. Our parents wouldn't let us out – what if we fell in the water? My youngest brother was being naughty and fell down, but my mother found him. I don't feel good about the floods. I can't study, I can't play, I can't go to school. I just have to sit at home and stay idle." Find out more and get involved: www.oxfam.org.uk/hereandnow
