INK MEETS ART
PAUL LAYZELL X DANIEL FROST
Following on from the success of his artwork for East Midlands Trains’ print campaign, Daniel Frost has ventured into his first directing endeavour with animation director Paul Layzell and the Blinkink studio.
Reimagining stories based on true life stories of customers’ woes being calmed by station staff, the series of films are warm and witty in equal measure. The first in the series ‘Teddy’, follows the mishaps of a missing bear.
Daniel used his beautifully imaginative and playful style to create these charming characters and Paul applied his animation prowess to bring them to life.
One of the first in a number of projects that will see Blink tapping into the rich pool of talent found under its roof, watch out for more wonderful collaborations between artists of different disciplines.
Blinkink is a production company based in Soho, London. Existing in the world where animation and technique-driven live action meet, Blinkink represents some of the world’s most visually inventive filmmakers.
