Nickelodeon - Ever wonder what Dora the Explorer's crib looks like? Let us show you.
At C&E, we sprinkle diamonds on everything we make… cause it's BALLER! Here's a sparkly co-branded promo we did for Syfy and Zales. C&E Art Director Justin Acree led our design team to ice out the Syfy on air look. Bling Bling!
Okay, we admit it, we like to laugh at the slight misfortunes of others. People flatulating, frightening their friends, flailing while falling, foiling plans. YOU KNOW IT'S FUNNY. That's why we were so pumped to create episodic promos for Nickelodeon's show You Gotta See This - a show designed to showcase only the most hilarious YouTube videos. Many of us here and C&E gathered together for screenings of these videos to determine which would be used in the promos. The determining factor? Laughs, of course! Check it out.
Calling all moms and dads! No one understands better than you the benefits of an educational and entertaining tool for your child. The Bubble Guppies Animal School Day App has been celebrated since the moment it hit the App Store on November 1st. From casting and shooting to editing and animating, we were very proud to be a part of this highly successful and collaborative campaign with Nickelodeon. Take a look!
Skylanders are back, and this time they're super-sized! Last year, we created promotional spots for an exclusive look at the Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure trailer. We were pumped to work again with our friends at Nick on the bigger, badder, Skylanders Giants promo! We married gameplay footage with elements of the Skylanders Giants trailer, and our graphics team added some rugged text, flying at breakneck speed. And the best part? The game has already been released! Who wants to come over for game night?
Have a curious nature? Then, you'll love these 5 branded content pieces we made for Intel through Discovery Science's Curiosity Series. Each episode features an expert discussing fascinating tech tidbits, illustrated by whiteboard-style animation. Everything was created by us from the ground up: we handled all of the production, illustration, animation and compositing. Intel liked the episodes so much, they asked us to make one more. Stay tuned in November for Episode 6! Watch the entire series here.
