Documentary feature CHI-TOWN to Premiere in Competition at SXSW

The SXSW Film Festival just announced its 2018 lineup and CHI-TOWN will have its world premiere this March in the Documentary Feature Competition !

Congratulations to everybody at Northern Lights who worked on the film, a project that took 4+ years to shoot – David Gioiella + Mark Littman, executive producers; Robin Hall, post producer; Chris Carson, editor; Chris Hengeveld, colorist; and Jody Nazzaro, sound mixer.

Directed by Nick Budabin + produced by Terry Minogue, CHI-TOWN tells the story of an underdog basketball player from Chicago, Keifer Sykes, who goes on a meteoric rise to become one of the best college point guards in the nation. But while he pursues dreams of the NBA, his success contrasts with the effects of gun violence on his friends back home.

The Iceman Skateth: Haley Geffen + Bodega gear up for Under Armour + US Speedskating

Just in time for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, BODEGA CD/director Haley Geffen takes to the ice to debut Under Armour’s new “speed skin” for the US Olympic Speedskating team. With VFX by Zoic Studios combined with edit + sound design from colleagues Chris Carson at NORTHERN LIGHTS + Jody Nazzaro at SUPEREXPLODER, the piece showcases the suit’s asymmetrical skin design that matches the athletes’ natural movement.

From UA: to support US Speedskating’s renewed training efforts and intense focus on Pyeongchang, Under Armour’s innovation team set out to deliver a new Olympic speed skin that maximizes comfort, mobility and speed. Fabrics and concepts were tested for hundreds of hours, creating an asymmetrical skin design that matched the sport-specific movement of always turning left. This build matches the athletes’ natural, ergonomic movement on the ice while keeping comfort and mobility at the forefront.

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.
