Fan Mail

io9: ‘There’s one sequence in particular that features some of the most imaginative set pieces yet to be featured in a Marvel film.’ ‘If you thought those sequences that drew from Inception and the deepest, darkest regions of Derrickson’s mind in Doctor Strange were good, you ain’t seen nothing yet.’

Esquire: ‘The film is such a joy to watch, it’s not hard to leave the theater wishing for more.’

We’re having a propa brew

This week saw some ads what were done proper in some Sean Bean and Dynamo-fronted commercials for Yorkshire Tea. The advertising team in LDN did some general clean up, a colour grade and may have needed to remove some wires on ‘magician’ Dynamo. I hate to break it to you, but he can’t really fly.

Beyond ‘Gravity’

It was a pleasure to host Professor Hugh Lewis in the LDN office for his talk, ‘Beyond Gravity’ – revisiting the issue of Space Debris (as brought to life with our Oscar-winning film Gravity) and the importance of awareness around this (terrifying) environmental problem.

Professor Hugh was introduced by our very own CCO Tim Webber (who happens to know a thing or two about the film) and stuck around for an hour-long Q&A … just in case he didn’t know how much we love talking about space 💁

Happy Canada Day!

Our Canadian counterparts celebrated Canada Day lat Monday 1st July. Now.. what exactly is it? The technical explanation: a day to mark the anniversary of the effective date of the Constitution Act, 1867. But of course it also means it’s a day to celebrate with fireworks, parades, etc – the full works.

Catch you next week. Ciao Ciao for now.
