They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and what a great way to spend it by chatting about all things animation and its value in the digital media space. A few weeks ago Jamie was invited to Berghind Joseph’s studio to do a round table talk on such things…
Here at BergHind Joseph we like to broaden our knowledge on all things design related. That’s why we hold a quarterly ‘Creative Breakfast’, where a guest comes in to the studio to discuss their line of work, and how it fits within the design world.
This month, Jamie Denham from the video animation company ‘Sliced Bread’ came into the studio; showcasing the companies work and explaining how exactly it fits in to the world of branding, corporate communications and employee engagement.
If you are interested in chatting about stuff over breakfast, then please don’t hesitate to drop us a line, we’ll even bring the croissants! Email email@example.com
Fresh from the toaster – we have just put together two, one and a half minute showcase sequences relating to our client projects on online games and brand communications. The pieces highlight the capacity in which we work with agencies and direct brands. We have some more sequences coming up in the future – so watch this space.

Coca Cola announce the launch of their new ‘Neverending Dance of Happiness’ games for Facebook and Android devices. The games coincide with Coke’s experiential festival campaign across European countries in 2011.
They encourage players to connect and win prizes via Facebook. The more you score against the 120 dance move options, the higher you rank. The Facebook game uses 3D character renders and is fully customizable across 6 genres with male/ female clothing options for that unique avatar style.
Coca-Cola is spreading some summer happiness with a new game on Facebook. The ‘Neverending dance of happiness’ will get you interacting with friends as you test your dance moves in rock, disco, salsa, electro, hip-hop and metal. By earning points during the game, you can save up for cool summer prizes – from Coca-Cola headphones to festival tickets.
You can also share your summer memories through videos and images you upload to the Facebook fan page. Why not get your summer groove on too with Coke and Facebook and spread a little happiness?
To refresh the festival season in the Benelux, Coca-Cola has launched the ‘Make Your Move’ campaign, spreading summery vibes on- and offline from June to September.
The beverage brand is present at festivals like Pinkpop, and can be found on the beach, where a Coca-Cola beach hut not only offers refreshing drinks, but also fine tunes to dance on. And those moves can be shared live via the ‘FaceLook’ face-recognition app.
Coca Cola also spreads some summer happiness through another app called ‘The Never-ending dance of happiness’, with which you can test your dance moves on several music-genres. Unlock new moves by ‘bump’ technology when bumping with other app users. This game lets you earn points and save up for musical summer prizes like festival tickets.
Sliced Bread are very proud to be partnering with The Green Marine (TGM) team on their new venture. The project is a proposed animation series for digital broadcast. We worked with the TGM team on character development/ design and an animatic trailer. We were drawn into the project by its original concept idea and existing interest by leading industry figures. Visit the site to get a full understanding of the properties fantastic potential.

At a time when there is genuine concern about the future of children in our society, he believes that we should be demonstrating the positive role that media can play: the impact it can have on culture, social values and learning as well as providing relaxation and entertainment.
He has developed a new children’s sci fi action adventure animation series…A BROTHER AND SISTER, AFRO CARIBBEAN JUDO MASTER, A FROG FROM OUTER SPACE AND A HANDFULL OF ECO VILLIANS.

Using a clearly defined set of environmental, health and social values The Green Marine animation series and accompanying applications will entertain, empower and help keep children on track.

We were commissioned by Faith The Agency to create a set of 10 3D illustrations for their client Beckman Coulter. The images were rendered out high resolution and used in a print advertising campaign. Given the way they have been built with a skeleton rig they can also be animated for use within banners or a commercial in the future.
