  • Toronto Studio IAMSTATIC's Modern Day Look Inside The Mind of Leonardo da Vinci

    / Comments (0)

    Really cool work from Toronto based IAMSTATIC and Township & Company who give us a look into the mind of Leonardo da Vinci.

    IAMSTATIC Creative director, Ron Gervais says "The story centres around Leonardo’s personal journals (codex) which hold over 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings. The film stars award winning actor Peter Capaldi as he narrates the translated text and passages directly from Leonardo's journals. Our task was to help develop a look and feel and then animate the "mind-scape" that transports the audience into Leonardo's thoughts and ambitions. After working 8 very full months with a small but tremendously hard working team, we created roughly 30 minutes of stereoscopic animation."

  • Powerful psa Slam's the Door on Suicide via Toronto's Union Creative

    / Comments (0)

    Toronto-based agency UNION has teamed up with Partners for Mental Health, a national, charitable organization dedicated to transforming the way Canadians think about and support mental illness, to bring to light the shocking statistics that surround youth suicide. After car accidents, suicide is the leading cause of death among young Canadians and accounts for 762 deaths a year.

    “The fact that suicide is the #2 cause of death among teens is shocking.” said Lance Martin, Partner and Executive Creative Director at UNION. “We wanted to do something really impactful to draw attention to it.” The PSA, which launches during Mental Illness Awareness Week, uses the all too familiar angry door slam that we associate with typical teen behavior to highlight that sometimes there is an underlying issue that shouldn’t be ignored. It resonates with parents because the truth is that sometimes living with a teen can be challenging, but that if the signs do go unnoticed and help is not provided, living without one would be worse.

    The PSA calls on viewers to visit rightbyyou.ca and sign a petition encouraging governments to change the way we support and fund youth mental health.
