 DESIGN & STORY

Our work is created and optimized for every modern medium. We build content for fully integrated campaigns regardless the verticals, ranging from original content for social media to billboards to 26 story environmental displays or brand campaigns for entertainment with traditional broadcast and second screen extension to out of home VR experiences.

And now through our partnership with CRRNT we have extended our capabilities into the digital sphere. Your projects are fully integrated, our teams are too. We share space, stories and 5 hour Energy drinks as one cohesive unit. Projects are discussed at our creative round table in order to get as many perspectives possible regardless of the deliverable scheme.

We excel at taking projects from the mythical napkin sketch through production and finishing but are pretty damn savvy at jumping into any phase of production to insert our thought process and creativity as well as our technical know how, bringing projects across the finish line while raising the bar on the end result.

Our process is centered around our Directors and creative team. Everyone is involved from beginning to end, your project does not get bounced around and handed off as it moves from phase to phase. Our Directors will be involved in the initial pitches and treatments all the way through production and post production to ensure quality and continuity of vision.

The Process
Research

We dive in and get down and dirty with your competitive landscape to ensure we always begin each creative journey from an informed position.

Battleplanning

With a final research package in hand, we will develop a detailed path that takes your project through each of the required steps in the simplest, clearest way possible.

Branding

If you got a product, yo we’ll brand it. We have developed brands for everything from tech companies to healthcare products, and lots, and lots of television shows.

Design/Styleframing

We design virtually everything we do, if you have the time, head over to the work page and take a look at the breadth of our storyboards and design work, it’s always interesting to see how many directions any given project could have gone.

Scripting

We work with talented writers that have specialties ranging from movie poster taglines to extremely technical explainer videos. 

Storyboarding

Do you need a bit more than a few styleframes to see how we intend on telling your story? We can provide detailed storyboards that walk through talent direction, camera movement as well as graphic structure for every scene, or just a few.

Directorial

Wheter stop motion, a lifestyle shoot on location, a tabletop extravaganza, or a green screen celebrity shoot, we wil bring vision and expertise to your production.

Live Action Production

We have the ability and experience to put together run and gun three man crews all the way up to a 5 tractor trailer 4 camera production.

Stop Motion Production

Need an anthropomorphized pencil to rob a village of erasers? Need a flock of sheep to mow down a field of yarn grass? We once made and animated a fish scaled entirely of thousands of silk flower petals swimming in a sea of beads. Yeah we can do that too.  

Table top Production

We have shot the Oscar, we have shot Zales campaigns, bling bling. We have shot burritos,  chocolate milk, and even syrup, yum yum.

VFX Supervision

The key to controlling the post budget is planning out your VFX long before you get to set. The battleplan for every shoot dives deep into VFX planning  to ensure that we have every contingency covered and there is never a hair out of place. 

VR

Creating VR content for Out of home, in store POP, to scary interactive VR experiences. We, Like the starship Enterprise are exploring new frontiers and going where noone has gone before.

We cut things

Motionography

We were motionographers long before it had a name. We have made mograph on everything from a Getrise Venice and Inferno, to Zerox machines and glass plates. Nowadays we prefer After Effects, Maya and C4d, but whatever the tool, our blood is graphic design in motion.

Animation

We can animate anything, we have animated most things already, we have animated them in 3d, we have animated them in 2d, we have animated with still photography sequences we have even created animation out of single still photographs.

VFX

While we are not a VFX house, VFX is inherent in what we do everyday. we fix shots, create digital environments, remove unwanted elements, create smoke, fire, arrows and cars.

Compositing

Just like VFX, Compositing is a big part of everytning we do, whether it’s laying in smoke effects, repairing lighting, tracking type into a moving scene, or building elaborate depth mattes to create a specific depth of field, hell… we could even fake a lunar landing.

Color Correction

Sometimes a guy is just a bit too orange, we can fix that. who knows, maybe you like that sort of thing, we can create a look setup that totally makes you feel like that badass Oompa Loompa you always knew you were.

And Goldfish

Fishy fishy fishy fish, that went wherever I did go.

Animated Explainer

You have a product that needs explaining, and you have a script and a rough concept. Explainers teach people how to do things or explain how a product or how to interact with a new service. It might never go viral, but smartly created Explainer can be the foundation for a strong understanding of your product, program or offering. Here are the steps we would take together to make your video a success:

Integrated Campaigns

This is probably a given, but all the tools are on the table including our not so secret weapon: CRRNT. In order to create projects that are optimised for cross platform deliverables ranging from OOH interactive displays to banners and websites to app development, billboards and traditional broadcast, the whole thinktank pours over the ask and works through the pitfalls and advantages of each deliverable. We weave together solutions that play to their strengths rather than simply forcing a single design into areas it has no business being. While it is represented by only 2 lines below, research and battleplanning plays a much bigger role that is revisited throughout the lifespan of the project in order to ensure success and reassure assumptions and decisions made early on are still valid.
