THE POWER TO TRANSFORM

There was a collective cheer at Tooth & Claw HQ when the Australian Ballet asked us to create a concept for their 2016 Season Brand Film. The theme of the year being The Power to Transform, we built our concept around the journey from Rehearsal to Stage.

IT WAS A TIME

Editorial

Sometimes we feel that people might not understand what it’s like to take 10 full days and nights of footage and squeeze it into a 90 second cut. The best way we can describe it is; imagine your house is on fire and you can only take what you can fit in your mouth.

UNTAMED GARDEN

We’ve built a few sets over the past few projects and we realised on this one that if we kept them all and placed them side by side we’d be pretty well on our way to having a strange little house. Four pastel office spaces with central Tatami room and elevator leading to a luxurious rooftop white tiled bathroom surrounded by a lush untamed garden. Odd.
