70mm Cruel Drool Dual Jewel Analog – Yule Log 2.015

What’s up yule foolz?  Only complete toolz deny the annual logz of yoolz.  This year we kicked the format up about as far as it can go short of IMAX and opted for vertically composed 70mm film for 2015’s nod to the log.  It’s got drool.  It’s got dual jewelz.  It’s got action that’s on the mild side of cruel.  And, despite its delivery being digital, this egg-nog paired log has originated from the analog.

Keep the shiny side up and your negatives uncut, and let the log’n rock your noggin.

Thanks to Yule Log 2.0 creator/curator Daniel Savage and digital agency Wondersauce for putting this together each year!

Audio Track: “Upgrade” by Impactist

Impactist + Cartoon Network + Kids = POPSICLE REMIX

Can’t stopsicle, won’t stopsicle.  Put on your new kicks for the new mix, because “Popsicle” has a remix.
 

Given top secret materials and instructions from the gang at Cartoon Network, we were charged with remixing “Popsicle”, the music track we had previously delivered earlier this Summer. CN reached out to their awesome audience with the network’s own CN Sayin’ app.  Kids were challenged to sing back the four note mnemonic jingle into the app while it recorded.  Once collected, we sorted and sifted through all the fantastic entries and chopped, pitched, and stretched them into this new package of remixes in several different durations for maximum flexibility in future use by CN.

You can currently hear the “Popsicle – Remix” airing as part of Cartoon Network’s “New Thursdays” Campaign.

“Popsicle” – New Music for Cartoon Network

Take your ears to the fun dungeon with new music we made for Cartoon Network’s Summer 2015 refresh. Check out the song we call “Popsicle”. No doubt, Clarence would tell you it’s worth it.
 

We were tasked with creating a song based on the four note Cartoon Network mnemonic jingle you hear whenever the CN logo pops up. Done and done. Then we broke down and recomposed the song into six other versions of different lengths for a whole package of sounds to be used throughout the Summer.  You’ve probably already heard it play on CN as the song that kicks off the CN broadcast day with the emoji filled 6am sign-on, as part of their “New at 6” Summer campaign, on the Cartoon Network CN Sayin’ app on your phone, and various other promos between shows.
 
Can’t just listen to Popsicle nonstop on repeat?  Your playlist is a miss? Your bearstack is whack? You can always listen to previous tracks we’ve made for CN like “Wires”, “Glazer”, and “Wintertone”. Or, check out the rest of our catalog available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.

Wilfred Seasons 3 and 4

Four, three, two, one.  Four mind bending seasons and then it’s done.  Farewell Wilfred.  We had a great time creatively straddling the line and hanging over the edge just a little bit with these packages.  So to wrap it all up, we put together a couple short montages of the elements that comprised the episodic packages we delivered to FX and FXX for season three and four respectively.

High fives to internet friends Daniel Savage, Oddfellows, and Wondersauce for putting this all together and for inviting us to be a part.

Impactist – Parapets

Impactist_Parapets_EP_Cover

Fakepets, realpets, weirdpets, headpets, heavypets, kindapets, readysetgopets. Open the front door and let in the Parapets.  Crank up your speakers until it feels like a pair of earbuds are buried so deep into your ears, that the wires are touching your brain and you can hear colors.  The neighborhood cat that mastered these tracks says that’s how they were meant to be heard.  Better living through treble.

Parapets is available on iTunesAmazon, Google Play, Spotify and Rdio.
