Perhaps a lofty title, but this is a wonderful animation piece by Christopher Hutsul and Saatchi & Saatchi Canada.

If you click on the picture of Neil and Lovemark below you will go to the Saatchi website and see the animation and the website Chris illustrated:

Where Are You Go – Trailer

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Benny posted this on his facebook yesterday. Check out the trailer for the film he made (with help) that looks absolutely incredible. I believe it’s premiering at the Bicycle Film Festival this year. Blurb below the video:

Four months on a bicycle between Cairo, Egypt and Cape Town South Africa is not your typical African safari.

En route with the Tour d’ Afrique, the world’s longest bicycle race and expedition, the Zenga Bros. (CAN) and Brian Vernor (USA) make light of this physically daunting trip by sharing a universal love of the bicycle with Africa’s roadside mechanics, sporting racers, and innumerable curious strangers.

Traveling more than 70 miles per day, 50 racers and expedition riders experienced the boundless Nubian desert of Sudan, the great majesty of Victoria Falls, and finally the cold rush of the Atlantic Ocean.

Where Are You Go captures the 7,000 mile expedition as a constant adventure full of playfulness and mysterious beauty, and is a testament to the endurance of human curiosity.

A story about our renos is in blogTO today. It also includes a link to more pictures of the office***. I didn’t mention last time that the Ministry of the Interior designed it. I probably should have.

Soft Citizen in Azure Magazine

Read about (some of) it in Azure Magazine:

The Toronto office of Soft Citizen – a film production company that makes music videos and commercials for the likes of Apple, ESPN and Dove – looks as if it leaped off the pages of a graphic novel.

Check out the site to see more of that, but the whole thing is in the June 2009 paper issue.
