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.

 

Evolution of a Horror Movie Poster…

We were tasked with developing some artwork for the new movie ‘Dead Squad’, which is in pre-production for an early shoot in 2017.  This monster/horror which is due to shoot in Bali, is being directed by our good friend Dominik Hauser and looks to be a lot of fun. When Dom asked us to work on the poster concept we jumped at the chance. Taking in the key elements of the script, tropical locations, impending doom and monsters, the idea was to create an image that tantalised the tastebuds but didn’t give everything away. Dom was blown away by the design and off the back of this, we are now developing some last minute production and monster designs to help Dom realise his vision.
