Dead Squad Trailer Hits….

The trailer has now landed for ‘Dead Squad’, the throw back horror film we have been co-producing and working on for over a year now. Directed by our good friend Dominik Hauser and shot at Movie Studio Bali last year, we have been heavily involved in this low budget, old school horror movie since its very beginning.

Starring Conan Stevens ( Game of Thrones) and Amazon Eve ( American Horror Freak Show), a group of friends discover an old temple hidden in the depths of the jungle. Unknown to our heroes is that evil Nazi scientists were experimenting on prisoners in the hope of creating the ultimate solider. The only success was in creating a squad of deadly zombies…..

The movie is due for release on 23rd October 2018 and once it does we will be showcasing a lot of the behind the scenes work we completed to help make the movie as camptastic as possible.

Keep your eyes peeled!

 

Bringing Dead Squad poster to life….

We have been working on Dead Squad for well over a year now and are really looking forward to sharing some of the behind the scenes adventures we have been having. In the meantime we have  the new poster for the movie which has a release date of October 23rd 2018.

We worked up quite a few posters for the movie, with the director and distributors going for a polish on one of our initial concept designs. David turned out a fantastic piece based on Joe’s concept work, my idea and John’s initial sketch, this really was a collaborative effort that really brings the elements to life and delivers a movie poster design that captures the mystery of the films narrative and the impending doom that awaits our heroes.

We hope you like!

 

Big Screen Service For A Dark Night….

We produced this film for Uniled – a leading provider of digital signage service and repair in the UK.

An underlying narrative tells the story of a young boy who views a digital signage screen from his apartment building everyday until one evening the screen malfunctions. Through the animated medium, stylised to show the only colour on offer is that provided by the screens themselves, we show the vast numbers of repairs required throughout the city and how fast, capable and reliant Uniled are in their service. The film culminates in the young boy watching as the screen comes back to life and his obsession becomes apparent.

This film was a complicated piece as there was a narrative that had to flow under a driven corporate message. A lot of artwork was needed to create a parallax environment that kept the camera moving and a murky colour palette that is juxtaposed by the bright colours of the screens that continue to burn through the night with the help of Uniled’s exceptional services.

 

Duck Tales – Cutting the commercial.

Creative Bone worked with Director Alesandra Scherillo of Twinset films to create this commercial for Italian luggage designer Mandarina Duck. We spent two days cutting the commercial after an energetic shoot that tells the tale of a young girls adventure through London. An organic handheld vibe that follows our adventurer in an almost fly on the wall style, the finished result is a cute but punchy exploration of the city through the eyes of a young teen armed with all she needs in her trusty Mandarina Duck rucksack.

Take a look at the finished film here:

Creative Bone produced a range of promotional videos for the ISO Card manufacturers Oasys. Oasys produce innovative high performance machines for the production of ISO cards and other specialist ID products.

Excelling In Machinery Excellence

Creative Bone worked with Endoline Machinery to produce a promotional video for an up and coming exhibition as well as their website. For this particular brief we had to create a film that not only embraced the clean, clear-cut apparel of their corporate ID but also reflected upon the history of the business and focused on the company’s key brand values. By adopting the theme of a ‘Developing Idea’ we produced an animated film that experimented with a continual moving line that morphs and evolves as the video progresses and culminates in the formation of one of their machines. The main focus of the film was to provide reference to the concept of a developing idea that charts its voyage from conception to completion.

Brochure Showcasing

Creative Bone produced a series of bespoke video brochures showcasing the products and services of companies such as Smith Metals and Endoline Machinery. Video brochures are an outstanding way to take your companies promotion to the next level.  Each brochure differed in style and requirements, allowing for printed booklet inserts and numerous movie content. These video brochures are completely bespoke to each customer with screen size, video content, button placement as well as imagery all custom built to the clients ideals.

Musical Machine Madness….

We worked with Endoline machinery to produce this video production as a promotional piece for both their new website and exhibitions throughout 2016 and 2017.

The concept was that the machine was able to create a percussive accompaniment to a music track, using sounds created by the machine itself.
This was a very tricky shoot as the machine only performs certain movements at certain intervals. We started by sampling each and every element of the machine separately, importing those sounds into Logic Pro, and then creating the drum track from there. Once the drum and music track had been created, we were then able to shoot all the live action elements. As the factory is in constant use, we had to work order doxycycline uk around the size limitations by placing the machine on a white background and then, extending the set digitally, removing all the extraneous factory elements in post.

As the machines are built to construct boxes, they are very limited in their music capabilities, this meant that we had to shoot each machine part separately, opening and closing, then bring them into the edit and animate them by hand to match the music synch.

This was a very long process and with a mix of split screen as well, there is a huge amount work that goes on behind the scenes to give the impression that this little machine creates the music.

A very fun and interesting shoot, once again creating something unusual and memorable.

 

Corporate Cartoon Caveman Capers….

This is an animated film we developed for Smiths Metals. Tasked with creating an original narrative that engaged audiences as well as sell the virtues of their supply system, we delivered a film production that is funny, informative as well as engaging.

With many corporate video productions, the subjects can tend to be very techno-babble heavy, but with the right concept and narrative, there is no reason why the films can’t be as engaging as they are informative.

What would usually be classed as a long film, this speeds along nicely and the run time flies past.
