As avid readers of our blog will know we have already covered our work up at Emirates Stadium for Arsenal(see here) but i have finally managed to create a short video of the Centrepoint logo we were commissioned to produce.
After so many failed attempts to turn our raw footage into an edited video that it is completely laughable i have finally managed to produce one very sub-standard video for your viewing pleasure. I realise that it’s probably not the most fantastic bit of video you have ever seen but i think i’m finally getting the hang of the video editing software we’ve got. It takes ages to crunch the HD video we shot and hopefully my next attempt will be somewhat jazzier although only time will tell. I should have proabably cut some of the footage out but that will have to wait until i’ve mastered the trim function – which could well take some time so you’ll have to bear with me…
After our successful venture to Mannifest (see here) we were approached as regards an interview for the Manx Independent, a newspaper on the Isle of Man. Being the fame hungry slack-jaw’s we are we jumped at the chance and proceeded to pour our hearts out to the inquisitive reporter. After a little cajoling i even included a picture of us (well, it’s an illustration) but that was as far as i was willing to go. A street artist must do at least a little to protect his anonymity after all…
Keen eyed readers will note our plea to be big in Japan. If you could possibly help us sort this out please get in touch as we would sincerely love a trip to Japan – and everytime i think about it i can’t get the song ‘Big in Japan’ by Alphaville out of my head…
The top of the article has been cut off due to the fact that it wouldn’t quite fit on an A4 scanner bed. The title for the piece is ‘Sholto and Hugo make their mark on London’ and comes from the Manx Independent on Friday 24th September 2010. Click on the image for a larger version.
Last week we got a call via a friend from Arsenal football club who were looking to commission a large (1.5m round) centrepoint logo for a photo shoot that was to take place involving the Arsenal players. This was to be in order to highlight their involvement with the charity (which is for homeless young people). For more information on the charity and Arsenal’s involvement please see the Be a Gooner, Be a Giver website here
Hopefully there will be a time-lapse video to follow at some point shortly…
