Bad Toys II

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Ever wondered what goes on in a young kids head while they play with their toy cars? Well I’d like to think it’s along the lines of the above short film ‘Bad Toys II’ from Creators Daniel Brunet & Nicolas Douste.

I’ll happily admit that I’m a right old sucker for the original ‘Bad Boys’ franchise, and in my opinion it includes one of the best lines in cinematic history “This shit just just got real”!

Cross this with one of my other loves Adam & Joe Show toy sequences and as Ken Korda would say you’ve got ‘Gold Dirt’. I’m not suggesting for one minute Bad Toys II is a ripoff, as the production levels alone are enough separate the two, while the cutting between reality and animation is a really clever touch.


Bill Maher – Irritable Bowl Syndrome

Monday, January 30th, 2012

London-based freelancer Fraser Davidson created this 2 minute infographic piece around an audio sequence taken from Bill Maher’s book “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody but Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass”. Irritable Bowl Syndrome is a witty comparison of american football and socialism’s financial parallels. Davidson took aesthetic ideas taken from Soviet constructivism and 1950′s Americana to create what I think is a great and incredibly fluid animation. It retains the irony and humor of Mahers monologue really well.

Nike “Oh my god I’ve just done a wee in my pants” Air Mag

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

There’s 3 things in life I’d probably sell my own mother for, a real Light Saber, a Tron Light Cycle and Marty McFly’s Nike trainers from Back to the Future II.

Well I’m still cleaning myself up after seeing the above, it seems someone at Nike finally realised that they’ve been missing a huge trick and got around to making a lot of big kids dreams come true. Yes I shit you not, Nike are releasing the the Air Mag for real, above is the official teaser launch video revealed over at Nice Kicks. Still unclear if they’ll be 100% with real with power laces, but at this moment I don’t care either way.

This is heavy Doc!

Fact of the week: 1 Today

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

I came across the fact that it’s one Neptunian year or 164.79 Earth years since man first discovered Neptune on 24 September 1864. So technically it’s Neptunes first birthday, although it’s much much much older than that and it’s a planet so it doesn’t really have a birthday! To celebrate I thought I’d do a very quick post and visual.

It then reminded my of my first ever job at Form many many moons ago and a certain Mr Sephton and his interesting fact of the day. If I remember righty, Matt would announce his interesting fact on a Friday afternoon over a brew. So and I’m going to revive that tradition and try to post one a week with a little visual.

Base, base, base, buttery biscuit base genius!

Here’s a little musical treat from the very talented Swede Mason, a must watch for any Master Chef fans, and if you like it as much as we do you can even download it here. Needless to say we’ve been banging it out in the studio all day. Massive respect has to go out to Grandbag’s for pointing us in the general direction.

Personally we think this is so good, the people in charge of the internet, may as well turn it off because it doesn’t get any better than this! Enjoy
