18.06.2018 – In May we hosted a House of Craft evening solely focussed on sound and colour. This collaborative evening evolves around sharing and exchanging creativity and the craft of making, which we all love and seek to hone.
Sound Designer Marco Baay demonstrated the magic of sound design and Colourist Matt Hare navigated the world of colour grading. While they are both masters in their respective fields, the joint presentation illustrated how these stages collaborate and complement each other in the finishing process.
“During this event we wanted to show you different examples of the use of colour grading, and how we can manipulate the same image to create five distinct movie genres. Then I combined each of these with Marco’s sound creations to harness the full effect of sound and colour on our cinematic experience” clarifies Hare.
02.06.2018 – What a weekend! Gold for the second year in a row at the European Design Awards and seven awards at the Kiev International Advertising Festival.
Nationale Postcode Loterij’s two bird watchers Harry & Barry stole the hearts of the jury at the EDA Awards prompting a gold win in the Motion Graphics category.
But the good news didn’t end there. The KIAF Awards humbled us with seven winning entries in four categories.
Another gold win for ASN Bank’s Creature of Habit in the Animation category, a silver win for the VFX and bronze for the Art Direction. Nationale Postcode Loterij’s Harry & Barry secured a silver award for the Animation and de Bijenkorf’s Only at de Bijenkorf commercial won bronze for the VFX.
Our Music & Sound team didn’t go home empty handed either as Strongbow’s Imagine received a silver award for the Music and Sound Design and Audi’s Road to Zero earned bronze.
14.05.2018 – Producers. Post-producers. Marketers. Business Directors. Strategists. Creatives of all kinds. OGs and newbies. This first edition of House of Craft – The Debrief brought us together to discuss and learn, to reflect on the past and tackle our day-to-day realities.
During this evening, Mark Cunningham, a veteran of the industry, opened up the conversation about the advertising world from the 70’s until now… Or as he called it, ‘the confessions of a mad man’.
This first edition is part of a series highlighting different topics relating to advertising production. These recurring events are the perfect nights for gabs, get-togethers, a little education and a lot of empowerment.
