Telly stuff

with 11 comments

I realised when I was updating my portfolio that a lot of you might not have seen the adverts for Yahoo! Music that I worked on. There’s five of them now. Scripted by the lovely people at Ogilvy in New York, animated by the lovely people at Nexus in London, drawn by the me at my desk in Berlin.
Here they are: Missy Elliott, Green Day, the UFO one, sweet and lovely Shakira, and Pharrell.
Hope you like.

  7. I caught a glimpse of the Yahoo! commercial during the Grammy Awards this week here in the States. Shakira was awfully cute…

  9. They are really great, Craig. I wish my company would’ve asked you as well to do something for them.

  10. How did you start off with the Yahoo clips? Did you have meetings where you brainstormed? Did they give you free hands from the very beginning? Did they constrict your work in any way? How did you come up with the end result. You must have had so much fun thinking “Hmm… I could use an UFO… and maybe an octopus… yeah… that would work…”. As usual I’d love to pick your brain when you’re in the flow.
