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.

In the lead up to shooting this video we journeyed to the Japanese Festival in Box Hill to meet Ito San and to soak up the vibe. While watching a Kabuki dancer doing a disappearing hand trick we were reminded just how much we love what it is that we do.

UNTAMED GARDEN

PLAY VIDEOi
Commercial

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.

Jamie comes to us and says, “I’m thinking about standing in a glass box for 24 hours, Fact.” We say, “We could probably make up a video to go with that.” Jamie says, “That would be really cool. Can I be in it?” We say, “Of course.”
