Jackrabbit just wrapped production on a :30 second PSA for the BC Cancer Foundation.

The spot utilized the talents of Mike Stewart and The Caffeine Collective's newest member, Dan Brittain. Dan worked some motion graphics on the spot, but it was his putting together of an INCREDIBLE score (on his ukulele and xylophone) which really blew us away. Welcome Dan. You rüle with an umlaut.

Jackrabbit Pictures and The Caffeine Collective are proud to announce the completion of Troy Nixey’s "Latchkey's Lament", VFX Produced by Ken Meyer of Jackrabbit Pictures.

The short, which clocks in just over 17 minutes, had over 95 shots requiring VFX work. From matte paintings, to 2D compositing, to marrying 3D into shot plates, to full CGI sequences, the team busted their balls on a fragment of a budget all in the name of art and nerdery.

Troy was chosen by Executive Producer and writer Guillermo del Toro to direct Don't Be Afraid of the Dark for Miramax Films based largely on the vision of this film. Way to go, bud.
