NEW WORK

EY. More than you were expecting.

Working with Ernst & Young and produced at In The Thicket, we developed, designed and directed a sophisticated "Rube Goldberg" machine to represent some of the key personality traits and attributes EY look for when recruiting the top MBA graduates; ingenuity, creativity and intelligence. Modelled and animated in Maya, dynamic simulations in Cinema 4D and rendered with Vray, to create a photo-real, miniature look.

CROWDFUNDING SUCCESS MEANS FALLING GOES INTO PRODUCTION

A successful 40 day crowdfunding campaign on the Indiegogo platform means we are pleased to announce that we hit our target and have received the funds to make our next short film Falling.

After seeing something special in our project, we saw large contributions to the film from Vittoria Coffee, who are great supporters of the arts and are now Proud Supporters of Falling. We are also hugely thankful to Ronnie Alam, who now comes on as Executive Producer and to Steven Kulper who comes on as Co-Producer. Finally, we are very pleased to announce our Proud Association with the fantastic charity LIVIN, who do lots of great work with people suffering with mental illness #itaintwektospeak.

We are also very excited to welcome Sarah Harris and Emma Chaplin to the production team. Sarah comes on as Producer and is tasked with steering the ship towards production and will do so with great organisational prowess and many coloured pens! Emma brings a wealth of experience as our Art Director and will take on all the Production Design for the film.
