May the Force be with You this Holiday Season

Happy Hols from the amazing BODEGA family. Great job all who contributed….

Holiday Cheer (and polar bears ice skating ! ) from HU_SH London

Kirk Hendry and HU_SH – we proudly represent them here through BODEGA – made this.

Here’s the backstory: to celebrate the return of its reality-competition show, Dancing on Ice, ITV Creative Executive Creative Director Tony Pipes dreamed up a world in which a polar bear wants to dance on ice but doesn’t quite know how.

Lucky for him, he meets a partner who can help and soon the pair is wowing the woodland crowd with twists and turns to the tune of perfect 10s.

Pretty great, right.

Kirk is an award-winning filmmaker who works in both live-action and animation. Kirk wrote and directed the animated short ‘Junk’, which screened at over 150 film festivals and gained awards and nominations including Bafta, BAA, BIFA, Soho Shorts, Creative Circle.
Kirk has directed commercials for The World Wildlife Fund, Ardbeg whiskey and The Guardian newspaper. He was also nominated for an MTV award for Music Video of the Year.
Kirk is currently developing a feature-length film of ‘War Horse’ author Michael Morpurgo’s award-winning book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ with co-director Neil Boyle.

Dave Merhar, King of Comedy + Boss of the Big Stage

 

“Every idea deserves every chance to live on the biggest stage.” Nobody knows that more than Dave Merhar. He said it. He’s done it. He’s doing it.

Dave has 13 SuperBowl commercials that he’s either directed or written so he knows the “big stage”.  Now that the “big stage” is changing, every idea has the same chance to be viewed by billions. With comedy as the backbone, Dave has created and filmed award-winning work for some of the biggest clients in the world, including AB/InBev, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts and scores of others.

Dave knows comedy, he knows visuals, he knows writing and he knows how clients work. With 2 television shows and features in development in Hollywood, the stage only gets bigger. But Dave’s goal remains simple; to be a true partner with you as the world of media consumption changes. That’s how great things get done on any stage.

 

A little work to share:
