I'm the Fire-Starter!

I'm the Fire-Starter!

It's time for our biannual site update. Last year we got to work with, Smokey Bear, one of our favorite childhood icons! He's up on the commercial page now. Next we're pushing for a spot with Woodsy the Owl ( he ran a very succesful anti-litter campaign back in the 80's. Now you know).

Also posted is some work we did for Pandora ( go Oakland!) and just released from the archives a spot that was too hot for the interwebs a few years back.

So way over due… but here is what we’ve been up to since last December.  Square, Xfinity, IBM, Old Navy, Honeymaid, IBM (again). Lots of cool projects this year, highlights include working with Lance Accord, Robin Leach, Nancy Kerrigan, Jordan Knight, and the most kick ass dump truck we’ve ever seen. Check it all out on the commercial page.

SEVENTEEN EVERGREEN

SEVENTEEN EVERGREEN

A little late but our video for Sevneteen Evergreen's Polarity Song is now up on the site ( on the music videos page). This was a collaboration with Sarah Applebaum ( an amazing visual artist) who we have been hankering to work with for some time. It's been getting some nice write ups on the web at Boing Boing, Gorilla vs Bear, and Elle magazine ( crazy?).

NFL and CONVERSE

Our new NFL spot has been gracing the airwaves the last couple sundays. Super happy with how it turned out and even more happy that it's been airing during some awesome 49er's games! The spot was out of Grey NY who came up with a great script. Check it out here

Also now that fall is upon us we can show a spot we shot last year for Converse out of Anomaly NY. The band in the video is called KIT. It's all up in the commercial page now

YOUTUBE PLAY FINALIST

Last night Synesthesia was announced as a one of the top 25 in the YouTube Play Biennial at the Guggenheim in New York. It was a wonderful honor.

Notes

Mark Landis

We just got back from Mississippi and Louisiana where we started documenting a rather interesting story. In Laurel, MS we met up with Mark Landis a man who has confessed to passing off literally hundreds of counterfeit paintings to museums over the last 30 years.  Many of these pieces have not yet been identified as fake.  Though recently exposed as a forger, Landis cannot be prosecuted as all the pieces were donated as gifts. We are exploring the circumstances behind Mark’s unique brand of philanthropy.

As this is our first documentary of this scope we asked Sophie Harris to help us produce it. Her previous projects include  2011 Sundance Grand Jury Award winner “How To Die In Oregon” and 2009 Oscar-Nominated “The Final Inch.”
