Black Mirror Anniversary

This time last year we were being treated to the release of Black Mirror Season 3! How time has flown by…

Soon, we will be bombarded by more gritty tales from creator Charlie Brooker, and producer Annabel Jones. We hope you are as excited as we are to see how this new season will unfold.

San Junipero wins at the Emmys

A huge congratulations go to; Charlie Brooker, Annabel Jones, Laurie Borg, and director Owen Harris for creating such an incredible episode, and making working on it so much fun.

New Compare the Meerkat Advert

Once again, Painting Practice collaborated with Passion Pictures to make a brand new and exciting Compare the Market advert!

You’ll all recognise the influence here – Alexander and Sergei are having a lovely dinner together on the deck of a great ship when Alexander chokes on his food. Sergei comes to his rescue and they both end up at the tip of the deck, arms floating in the wind, Celine singing in the background…

For more information, check out the Compare the Market website: https://www.comparethemarket.com

James Wellbeloved

We worked closely with Passion Pictures to create this beautiful and heart-warming tale of friendship, all in gorgeous CG animation. One of our proudest jobs!

Congratulations to Justin, Sammy and Alessandro for their hard work, ranging from art direction, concept art and sketches to 3D and Digital Matte Painting.

Collide Soon Released

Collide, directed by Eran Creevy, will be out in American cinemas on the 24th of February!

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley, the film promises to be intense with incredible fast-speed vfx, explosions and car chases. Yet the story focuses on the love shared between the two main characters, despite all the dangers they have to face. Painting Practice was heavily involved in the production design and vfx of the film, with exciting previz, concept and set design work.

How far would you go for the one you love?
