TBWA asked us to adapt an existing ad and create the world of Glamping to reflect the brand new attraction being unveiled at Chessington World of Adventure. We created and animated an assortment of animals; giraffes, parrots, zebras and butterflies and these elements were then composited along with other layers and parallaxed to add extra depth. All post took place here at MediaCityUK Towers.
Match Of the Day at 50 | BBC1
It was a pleasure to help out our friends at Dock10 with some final grading and tweaking for BBC 1 Match of The Day at 50 documentary. With a heavy mix of interviews and archive footage there was certainly lots to do to get everything bedded in and peachy. Needless to say it all looked gorgeous on TX.

Brother Mobile Cable label App | Brother Europe
Brother is the market leader in specialist handheld printing technology.
We were asked to create a digital marketing tool that would demonstrate the features and custom workflows of Brother’s handheld mobile labelling machines.

The series of videos we produced formed part of Brother’s European marketing initiative.

After a long day on set and plenty of tracking markers later, the shots were ready for our post team.
3D dresses and sleeves were modelled in Maya, lit and then composited with live action in Smoke.
An additional science section was created in 3D to tie in with the new product launch. We are very chuffed that the ad won the coveted SIA Summit Award.
NetBet Gaming Ad | Agency: Gimo
The brief was to create a sumptuous 3D world of gaming that reflected the NetBet brand values and offer. The client was so pleased with the campaign they ordered a new one for another of their gaming brands.

Love in the Post | 4K Feature Film | Client: Heraclitus Pictures
This was a great project to work on. We handled all the post production, including grading, VFX, green screen and multi format deliverables. The client wanted to post in 4k and it was a perfect way to test our team and gear. Everything went very smoothly and we hit the deadlines and client expectations.
There were literally hours of 4K raw RED footage to manage and conform. But it was all made possible with seamless performance from our Da Vinci Resolve and Smoke coupled with a fast and efficient workflow.
