Sun Creature just made a lovely new piece for Optus, with a Japanese anime style reminiscent of Travel Oregon, and Shots wrote up a review. Check it out!

For this project, Sun Creature worked with Bear Meets Eagle on Fire, a newly opened creative studio and agency based in Sydney.

Guillaume Dousse co-directed this project with french director and former Pixar animator, Louis Clichy, whose affinity for character driven stories wonderfully complimented Dousse's experience from working on the Travel Oregon films. They produced it in only 7 weeks time!

For more on the film, check out the project page here: http://www.psyop.com/project/optus

As schoolkids take flight, one young boy is helped by a group of generous raccoons in this spirited advert out of Sun Creature's studio.

Between is an exploration of entanglement between the human body, and the space that surrounds it. Figures are suspended in a state between solid sculpture, and fluid fabric. The immersive space showcases several moving compositions, each uniquely evolving between states of familiarity and abstraction.

Psyop | Cousin John

Our Sundance award-winning director Tom CJ Brown’s stunning music video “Cousin John - The Arrival” will be featured at this year’s South by Southwest festival. A delicious, modernist queer daydream reinterpreting the 60’s classic song “Cousin Jane” by the Troggs, this film imagines what a non-binary and non-conforming world could look like. Having premiered in the US at the HollyShorts Film Festival last summer in LA and being deemed “grandiose, gorgeous and above all else gay” by Paper Magazine, this is not something you want to miss!

Psyop | Directors Psyop Christian Bevilacqua

We are excited to welcome the incredibly talented director, visual artist, and longtime Psyop fan, Christian Bevilacqua, to our roster! Christian took an instant liking to Psyop when he was first introduced to our work as a teenager while watching "One Dot Zero," a show that featured up and coming artists pushing out edgy work. As his directing career has grown, we at Psyop have been following his work in awe, imagining what great things we could do together. Our mutual love is finally realized! Christian joins the Psyop family, bringing his unique skillset, impressive body of work and ever evolving style. His innovative work stems in large part from his roots in animation and his interest in technology -- he combines live action, performance, VFX, and design resulting in unique and attention grabbing work. In addition to having worked with big name brands such as the NFL, Nescafe, Toyota and Mastercard, Christian has also won multiple industry awards, among them a pair of Cannes Young Director Awards, multiple Creative Circle awards, an ADDY and APA accolades.

Psyop | Chickfila

The most important part of the holidays is spending time with your loved ones. Psyop director and co-founder Marie Hyon beautifully evokes this sentiment in our animated film for Chick-Fil-A, "The Time Shop." Our goal was to create an intimate tale that emotionally connects the viewer to our protagonist, to bring out the subtlety and nuances of her character, and to leave the audience with a sense of wonder and joy.

Make sure to check it out if you haven't already, and have some tissues on hand just in case!

Watch Grandma's Cats are Trying to Kill Her Season 2 - Prime Video

Psyop's first foray into original programming has now released its third season on Amazon Prime's Dreamworks TV channel.

Boasting a fresh, mid century design vibe, Grandma's Cats Are Trying to Kill Her was concepted, developed and produced at Psyop. Grandma's Cats follows the story of young Lucas, initially excited to spend a summer at Grandma's house binging zombie movies and candy. Quickly, Lucas begins to uncover a nefarious plot by Grandma's two constant companions -- her cats -- hell bent on making sure that this summer is her last.

Initially distributed through YouTube, seasons 1 and 2 were structured in an episodic format so that they could be viewed in any order. When the show moved to Amazon Prime's Dreamworks channel, the team was able to follow a serialized format that digs into the backstory of the cats and starts to reveal a larger conspiracy at play.

Grandma's Cats Seasons 1 - 3 was EPed and Produced by Amanda Miller, Season 3 was directed by Jack Anderson.

Lucas's plans to spend summer vacation at Grandma's house eating candy and playing video games fall to pieces when he uncovers a deadly secret - Grandma’s cats are trying to kill her! These scheming felines are pulling out all the stops - robotic cat monsters, mini-golf disasters and even an elect...
