NB Studio: Why Us?

NB Studio has just released a charming self-promotional film, directed by Johnny Kelly, that explains why potential clients should consider working with them…

The two-minute animated short, directed by Kelly and James Graham, features a voice over from designer Michael Wolff.

The studio wrote a script for the project based on ideas which arose from various internal workshops. NB’s Alan Dye and Nick Finney then briefed Kelly to help make “a short film about what we do,” they say.

Design: James Graham. Animation: Johnny Kelly. Copywriter: NB Studio. Voice over recording made at Fonic. Sound design: David Kamp. NB thanks Felix Massie, Amael Isnard, Anders Freij and Nexus Productions for technical support. The film can also be viewed at nbstudio.co.uk.
