Category : animation, design, event, zeroh studio August 16, 2016

zeroh-root1066-blog2016 marks the 950th anniversary of The Battle of Hastings and there are many related activities and events throughout the year in the town and surrounding area. The main focus of the festivities comes at the end of the summer, the ROOT1066 International Festival, which runs from September 3rd till October 16th. Festival Director Polly Gifford has commissioned us to create a closing event for the celebrations, for which we have chosen the recently opened Source Park, the worlds largest underground skate and BMX park, as the venue. We’re currently making plans and talking ideas through with collaborators in order to create A unique Work In Progress, the start of an ongoing wider work focusing on the Source Park.  More info will be released over the next two months with hints as to what you might expect. Join us on October 16th from 6pm.


BEE POTION – BRANDING

Category : artwork July 27, 2016

We were recently commissioned, by start up company Bee Potion, to design a Bee for their range of skin care and beauty products all derived from honey, pollen and wax. Company CEO Katharine Slater had seen our Moths around Hastings and wanted us to create an icon for Bee-Potion in a similar vein. We’ve also designed the bottle labels for the brand, more on that when they hit the streets.

zeroh_CathyComeHome_blogimageOur work with Cardboard Citizens continued throughout the Spring with a very special one- off re-staging of Ken Loach’s iconic TV play ‘Cathy Come Home’ at the Barbican on July 5th. We were Digital Designers on the project which involved us creating the storyboard, design, animation and presentation of Joanna Layla‘s elegant illustrations. The performance was streamed live and received a 4 star review on The Guardian‘s website. The production was commissioned by the Institute of Fundraising on the 50th anniversary of the TV plays initial airing and in the year of Cardboard Citizens 25th anniversary. You can watch the performance HERE which is followed by a panel discussion chaired by BBC journalist Samira Ahmed featuring Ken Loach.

zeroh_PierOpen_BonkersBingoHaving worked as the creatives for Hastings Pier Charity, since the restoration works began almost 4 years ago, we were invited to curate and direct the official Opening Day’s morning and afternoon entertainment for the expected 10,000 visitors, May 21st 2016.
We worked around the theme of the Pier’s, world famous, musical heritage with a good measure of tongue in cheek ‘traditional seaside fun’ thrown in. More details and images to follow.


EduFlicks – Educational App Design

Category : design, film, video April 2, 2016

zeroh_EduFlicks1EduFlicks ‘Hollywood Classroom Project’, working closely with Hollywood action director David Lane and film/ fx producer Michele Fabian Jones we were tasked with the role of design, conceptualisation and visualisation of an educational app for use by secondary education students.
We were given a simple storyboard which we developed and re-designed resulting in a learning concept app that uses work groups/ smart phones and social media platforms to engage students with creative film challenges orientated around curriculum based subject matter, rather like a ‘digital exercise book’. We also worked on green screen compositing work for the pre-loaded content, the example being the balcony scene from Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. The app is currently in further development based on our supplied user journey examples, design and compositing.


CARDBOARD CITIZENS – META

Category : artwork, video February 22, 2016

zeroh_META_thumbnail-2‘META’ is the second project we’ve worked on with the
incredible Cardboard Citizens and is currently on tour.
“Science and art collide in this funny, powerful Forum Theatre show developed with students from the borough of Tower Hamlets. Neuroscientific findings are shared through physical theatre, video projection and sound design giving an insight into what happens to our brain (and the rest of us) as we grow up.” We worked with the Cardboard Citizens production staff and a team of Neuroscientists on the visual aspect of the piece and created animations for the ‘science bits’ and backdrops for the location scenes. We are also in the process of documenting the production for a short film to be finished in May of this year. ‘Meta’ is supported by The Wellcome trust. More info and images from the production will feature here shortly.
