CROXLEY PARK / OVERVIEW FILM

We were approached by Blast to put together an overview film for Croxley Park, an expanding business park on the outskirts of London. They had already created the new brand, along with illustrations and colour pallette, and using footage filmed by Adam Clitheroe, our job was to do all of the post production, and create a film that reflected the vibrant, and environmentally focused nature of the park. We also created a full alphabet, bespoke animated typeface that we used throughout.

NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM / DEATH IN THE ICE TRAILER

We were approached by Blast to put together a trailer for the National Maritime Museum exhibition about the explorer John Franklin, called ‘Death in the Ice’. The footage had already been shot against green screen by David Ellis, as part of the photography for the posters. It was up to us to put together the final trailer, creating a realistic arctic scene and compositing the Franklin character into it. This involved camera tracking, extending the track into a virtual camera, various particle systems and 3D elements, to create the final effect (as you can see in the compositing breakdown above).

The trailer has also been used to promote the exhibtion in Canada.

NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM / ABOVE AND BEYOND TRAILER

Working with Blast again, we were asked to create a promotional trailer for the ‘Above and Beyond’ exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The exhibition ident already existed, and we were provided with the promotional materials, and script…it was up to us to create the moving content from this. As we only had 2D elements, we chose to recreate the rockets and planes needed in 3D, so we could combine them with stock footage, and achieve the necessary drama to match the style of a summer blockbuster trailer. The exhibition is also heavily interactive, but we didn’t have access to footage that we thought we could use. Using reference from the exhibition itself, we filmed 4 children and added HUD style graphics. We also re-purposed the elements to create a super wide format loop for the ticket hall screens at the museum. Achieved on a low budget, this is actually a slightly extended version of the final trailer.

“I just wanted to let you know that EVERYONE at RMG (Royal Museums Greenwich) and Boeing are extremely impressed with the trailer. Boeing have said and I quote ‘it is wonderful’ and better than anything else they have produced. So, wanted to say a big well done and thanks to the team who worked on this.” – Zeena Virani, RMG

LUXURY COMEDY 2 / TONY CURTIS & CURTIS TONY

We made these two puppets for series 2 of ‘Luxury Comedy’. We had to find a balance between functionality and crudeness, as they were meant to be made by a mute internet sensation called Paul Panfer, who remakes Elvis films on his mobile phone. We considered using professional puppeteers, but in the end it was funnier when performed by the shows writer Noel Fielding, and fellow performer Tom Meeten.

Nigel Coan from Nipple, co-wrote and directed Luxury Comedy.
