Done and dusted!

Well we did it! We actually completed another 48hour short film, it was bloody hard, way more than the last time we entered the comp in 2007, and we didn't sleep for roughly about 60 hours when it was all said and done but we've come out the other end with a 6 minute, fully animated short that we're pretty proud of, at least it makes sense to us, we just have to wait and see what the judges think.

We're not allowed to post the film online until the competition is over but we'll be posting bits and pieces along the way, if you're on Facebook check out some of the photos we took over the weekend...

Makin' a short in 48 Hours!

So this weekend we're taking part in the 48Hours, where teams of filmakers have to make a short film in just, you guessed it, 48 hours. We actually competed in 2007 and made it all the way to the 'National Finals', the first time for an animated film.

We had a bunch of fun but haven't really had the time to do it again since but we thought this year would be a good time to give it another go. So it kicks off tonight where we'll get our genre given to us, as well as a random prop, character and line of dialogue that each team has to use in their films!

Wish us luck! Here's the film we made in 2007...

Mister Rabbit!

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to start up a friendship with, Chris Ballew who you may know as the lead singer of the band, Presidents of the United States of America. We found out Chris had a side project called, Caspar Babypants which, to put it simply, is well written music for children... kids music that doesn't drive you insane ;) As a parent myself (Ryan), it's quite a rare find.

So anyway, it seemed only natural we team up and make something super cool for his legions of young (and old) fans. Chris has an awesome dedication to creating music for kids that allows them to follow easily and engage on many levels... so our video had to reflect that. One of the best parts of making this video was the level of trust Chris put in us, so we were allowed to go away with complete creative freedom and create the following simple and sweet music video for his best selling kids song, Mister Rabbit.

All the Caspar Babypants albums are available on Chris' website
