Packin’.

August 1, 2014

Grab whatever clean clothes you got lyin’ around and throw’em in a suitcase, cuz’ our new film Migration is hittin’ the road.

The film made it’s world premiere at the 10th anniversary of Pictoplasma in Berlin followed by it’s recent screening at Supertoon Animation Festival in Croatia where we picked up a Special Jury Mention. Whaaat! From the 16th of September to the 21st the film be in three simultaneous festivals. The 20th anniversary of Encounters Short Film & Animation Festival in Bristol, the 10th Anniversary of the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival in Berwick-upon-Tweed, and the Matsalu Nature Film Festival in Lihula & Haapsalu, Estonia.

Migration was also slated to screen at Fantasia Film Fest, tonight here in Montreal, but due to scheduling conflicts we had to hold off on the North America Premiere…we’ll announce soon where that will be.

So come say hi if you’re anywhere near these fine places!Poster

Portrait 1.

June 30, 2014

We’re finally putting up one of our moving portraits for the Pictoplasma Portrait Gallery, that took place in Berlin at the beginning of May. You can check out how the show looked HERE. If you’d like to see the works in person, you’re in luck because the whole show is moving to Mexico for four months as of September! More specifically at MARCO, the Museum for Contemporary Art in Monterrey. In the meantime, let Eleanor Puss Paws steal your soul with her space ghost crystal gem.

Hey y’all we just got these spots back from the finishing house, and got them all polished and uploaded and what not. These ads were for Elections Ontario to convince you to have your voice heard and get out there and vote. Hopefully you did your thang! Big ups to our man Pasemko & Ko for helping out with the animation and all the fine folks at Leo Burnett. Last but not least our favourite ladies over at Hesty Reps for sending this our way.

Demo 2013

June 28, 2013

Whoa mama! We’ve been away for what seems like ages, but only because we’ve been cookin’ up a batch of hot cupcakes for your eyeballs.

Below you’ll find our newly spit shined Demo Reel with a couple of quick glimpses of some projects that will drop shortly. If you’re not in the know, check out our Vine page for even more quick (you really can’t tell what’s going on, cuz they’re too short) glimpses of things.

Kiddos!

You might have remembered our post from a couple of weeks ago talking about Spectacle: The Music Video. We had the pleasure of attending the opening night festivities and it was as great as we could have imagined. The exhibit is spread across three floors of the Museum of Moving Images and packed with great props from some classic music videos of yesteryear, including stuff from Michel Gondry, Hammer and Tongs, Encyclopedia Pictura and Shynola! Our Spacious Thoughts video is featured among a bunch of other amazing music videos and can be seen in one of the many screens hanging on the walls. If you’ve got some time, we suggest you sit your bums down in the main theatre to check em’ all out in their glorious big screen. Seriously guys… all the videos look amazing.

Vevo did a great job of giving you all a sneak peek and interviewing some of the people involved in this great exhibit, including yours truly. Check’em both out below!:

For all you New Yorkers and visitors to NYC, head on down to the MOMI and catch this show while you can (April 3-June 16)!

Kids! We’ve got tons of links and news to throw your way in this post, so sit down in your comfy chair and have the dog bring your slippers, and get ready for a pile of FH goodness.
First up, we’re heading back to NY this week to take in Spectacle at the Museum of Moving Image. We’re super honoured to be a part of this historical examination of the music video and can’t thank Meg and Johnathan Wells enough for deciding to include us. It’s gonna be an amazing collection of art, props, videos and the like, so be sure to check it out. The show runs from April 3rd to June 16th. Here’s a quick blurb from the NY Times on the exhibit.

Then we’ll be sticking around for a few days working on a few lil’ projects. Getting them ready to unleash upon your innocent peepers. Here’s a sample of a short film we’ve had kicking around for ages but have never released.

Speaking of films, N.A.S.A: Spirit of Apollo Documentary is now available on all your different viewing platforms. Here’s the entire film in just 26 seconds.

What else have we got up our sleeves for you this Easter weekend? Howz about this unused macro test footage we shot for a feature film a few years back.

We’re gonna wrap up our week in NY with this years MoCCA Fest. Our man Khouri will be on hand selling his goods which you can glimpse over at his store.

Moving Stories Pt.1

March 7, 2013

Hey kids, a quick little somethin’ for ya’ before the weekend hits! It’s part of a bigger project overall, which will be released hopefully very soon. But in the meantime, you can check out this title animation for a series of Toyota sponsored short films or “Branded Entertainment” as the kids say. We finished this at the end of last summer but it’s finally making the rounds now… cuz we’re slow.

And in case you were wondering, “Hey FH! What would that look like in french?” Bam! Here’s a still.
