Luke is currently working on a series of four 60” commercials for the McDonald’s “We All Make The Games” campaign with Leo Burnett.
The mammoth project, which launched in July, is an integrated advertising campaign celebrating the 70,000 volunteers who work behind the scenes, the fans and McDonalds Olympic Champion Crew and Games Makers teams at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. During Games time, TV, online and digital outdoor work will be refreshed to reflect the mood of the nation and the real, moments that take place during the Games.
The first commercial was directed by Neil Gorrige, another Moxie Pictures repped director, and aired in July. The commercials that Luke’s directing are adding to and building on that commercial, so that on almost a weekly basis, a new 60” ad will be aired, which will incorporate the events of that week.

Paul Fraser’s award winning directorial debut “My Brothers” is released nationwide today. The film tells the story of three brothers’ adventures on a quest-driven road trip as they struggle to cope with their father’s impending death and to define their own place in the bigger world.

Alan Friel talks about how he pulled together a short film in 48 Hours:
‘Poor old Gregg is the unluckiest man in the world, even though he works in a factory that produces luck’. ‘Greg & The Luck Factory’ is a product of Smoke & Mirrors 48 hour’s film competition that takes place yearly in London. Anyone working in the film/advertising business in Soho can enter the competition and it involves the entire crew working on a voluntary basis to make a 5-minute film from conception to delivery within 48 hours.
I had pulled together a couple of actors and by chance Ted, who plays Greg in the film, has an uncle with an engineering factory Read the full article »
Sophie Merry has been a very busy little bee over the last few months. She has just finished work on her short film “Clockhead 3D”, which will premiere this weekend @Darklight 2011.
“Clockhead” is Ireland’s first live-action stereoscopic 3D short. Sophie worked on the project with Sigmedia (TCD). They will be doing a workshop as part of the festival on Friday 21st October @ 16:45 in the Factory. The official screening of the film will take place on Saturday 22 October at 1pm as part of the “New Indie Voices’” Programme.
Sophie has also just finished a little project with the ICAD Upstarts to advertise their upcoming Exhibition which will open on the 3rd of November at South Studios and will run until the 10th. The piece which is called “Best in Show” was written by Sam Moorhead and is directed by Sophie. It was a really fun project to do, and I still smile everytime I watch it. To watch it click here.
So earlier this year, we finished our promo for Raidió na Gaeltachta, directed by Luke Franklin. A deadly job to work on from start to finish.
One of the main reasons it was so so special was that it was a very community driven project. From the start Raidió na Gaeltachta audience were invited to participate in the making of the promo. They ran a competition in May (Tá Siad ag Teacht) to choose a Gaelatcht community to be featured as the location. The competition ran over three weeks on the station, Facebook, the RTE website and Youtube. Raidió na Gaeltachta received entries from several Gaeltachts who wanted to take part.
So our lovely, talented, Luke Franklin, shot his debut campaign for the UK and Japanese markets earlier this year with Moxie Pictures. The client was Topps Confectionery. The result is three quirky commercials, that are unmistakably Luke.
Here’s some lovely pictures from our recent SuperValu shoot with McCann Erickson.
The commercials were directed by Paul Fraser and these pictures were taken by Paul Kelly from studio3.
New to the Voodoodog page is the animated title sequence created for “Nanny McPhee the Big Bang”. A really sweet stop motion sequence, created in a little more than 10 weeks.
VoodooDog created the title sequence for the first “Nanny McPhee” which was flatter and had a cut-out animation approach. For the sequel Paul Donnellon (Creative Directive of Voooddog) wanted to make the titles 3-dimensional. And he knew he wanted to do stop motion.
“For about 10 years or more, everything’s been so 3-D,” says Donnellon. “The problem is that nobody is pushing the technology further. Everything’s Read the full article »
