  • The Supporting Act - BBC Christmas
    The Supporting Act - BBC ChristmasElliot’s Christmas film for BBC One shows his ability to take a simple story and turn it into something truly magical. The characters were animated using stop-motion but the facial expressions were created and mapped on the puppets using CGI to bring them to life. The dance routine was choreographed first in live action and then an expert team of Blinkink animators recreated the moves one painstaking frame at a time. This relatable story of a young girl preparing for the biggest performance of

  • Justino - Night Shift
    Justino - Night ShiftThis little film became an advertising sensation, exploding out of the Spanish market to bring a tear to eyes around the world.

  • How to #ChooseLove for Help Refugees
    How to #ChooseLove for Help RefugeesChoose Love. It’s a simple, but powerful message. At a time when the world faces many challenges; when rhetoric of hate and division has found itself centre stage; we believe sharing this simple message has never been more vital. We all have a choice. To be motivated by fear and animosity, to build walls and turn our backs on the world. Or to nurture the hopeful; to recognise our common future. To choose love. The world can feel broken, but everywhere these cracks are letting in light.
