Rob Baker - Senior Engineer says:

 "I've always been a fan of random music experiences, wherever they come from. Every Field Day festival I'd always end up spending a load of time watching artists like Omar Souleyman, Imarhan, Mbongwana Star, Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté and Ata Kak etc.
 
A few years ago, my flatmate put me on to this incredible website - http://radiooooo.com/
 
It's always my go-to when I want to listen to something a bit different.
 
Current favourites are 1980's Tanzania, 1970's Zimbabwe (South Rhodesia), 1970's Indonesia and 1980's Colombia.
 
As the site relies on people uploading new tracks, sometimes some countries don't have a huge selection, but what's up there is usually pretty decent.
 
Enjoy!"

SNK Studios recently collaborated with creative experts LEAP, on the production of their latest Duracell UK TV Campaign.

To provide an insight into the production process from start to end, and to see how SNK were involved, here is the latest press release from LEAP’s Creative Director, Danny Coster:

 

LEAP are proud to have been selected as a production partner of choice for Grey London on the Duracell account for the past two years. So when Grey's creative team Nathan Holley and Paul Moran had the idea to create a piece of disruptive advertising, they turned to LEAP to see what was possible within a tight production timeline. Always up for a creative challenge, LEAP Creative Director Danny Coster paired up with Director Rob Toay to create the full film production and post of a 'pastiche' sports brand commercial for the Duracell Bunny to make a surprise appearance.

 

Shot at dawn in the Queen Elizabeth Park against the backdrop of the Olympic stadium and Aquatic Centre, the commercial needed to feel like a genuine sports brand advertisement. Trusted DOP Cliff Evans worked closely with Rob Toay and the visual effects team to film our actress performing her morning warm up routine and embarking on a run. As she rounds a corner, the animated Duracell Bunny unexpectedly enters the scene to challenge her to a race.

 

Working closely with Agency Producer Roger Lairisa and Grey’s other production partners including Mikros Studios in Paris, LEAP’s team co-ordinated the pre-production and blocking of theDuracell Bunny scenes. This ensured that everything on the director’s storyboard was achievable on the shoot day and enabled the combined live-action and CGI commercial to be completed in post production on time on budget.

 

The live-action, sports-style ad takes place after a fully CGI spot in which the Duracell Bunny races the less effective (and cheating) rabbit(s) through a perilous landscape. To bring the ads together with just the right blend of continuity and disruption, we arranged for the talented team at SNK Studios to add sound design and voiceovers.

 

Watch your commercial breaks closely for the disruptive Duracell Bunny, broadcasting now in the UK.

 

Film and Post Production as well as Imaging and Animation are part of the integrated advertising services we offer at LEAP. To find out more, see our services page.
