Dublin Christmas Flea

The monthly Dublin Flea Market has been running now for 10 years & has grown from strength to strength. 2018 was the sixth year that the Christmas Flea market has been running. It’s one of the best markets in the country & has been an incubator to many young companies who have now grown & expanded due to the experience, success & encouragement experienced trading at the market. It is now well established as a ‘must visit’ event in the Dublin Christmas calendar.

Here is a promo we produced with them, giving you a flavor of what’s on offer.

Facing Addiction

Facing Addiction & The National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence (NCADD) are based in Danbury, Connecticut. They are national non profit organisations dedicated to finding solutions to the addiction crisis by unifying the voice of the over 45 million Americans & their families directly impacted by addiction.

Their aim is to bring together the best resources in the field in order to reduce the human & social costs of addiction, every year until this public health crisis is eliminated. Addiction effects all walks of life & their work is invaluable.

This explainer video was used at events through out the USA & shared online. The voice over was done by Kristen Johnston who played Sally Solomon in 3rd Rock from the Sun.

It was a pleasure working with them on this project & we hope it helps make a difference.

Fisca

We produced this whiteboard animation for the fire & access consultancy company, Fisca in Co. Sligo.

A 2 minute whiteboard animation like this takes approximately 3 weeks to produce from when we receive a script.

Kilkenomics 2017

2018 saw the eighth edition of Kilkenomics festival take place in Ireland’s sunny south east. Over the years the festival has brought some of the worlds finest economists, media commentators & comedians to Kilkenny City to discuss the major issues facing the world today. As they say: it’s serious but it’s fun too!

We have filmed hundreds of shows over the years & have learned a lot about economics along the way!

Here is a short piece from Cleere’s theater & the 2017 promo.

McSquared

Here is the second episode of a new animation called ‘McSquared’ we worked on with two great economists. David Mcwilliams is a well known Irish economist, broadcaster & author. Paul McCulley is an American economist and former managing director at PIMCO. He coined the terms “Minsky moment” and “shadow banking system”, which became famous during the Financial crisis of 2007–2009.

The animation is a mixture of 2d & whiteboard animation. In this episode they discuss ‘Why The Federal Reserve simply doesn’t get it’.
