  • Our latest short film Chupan Chupai is finally released:

    Chupan Chupai is a short film installation that combines environment design and cinema in an exhibition format. The project was developed for the ‘Future Perfect’ exhibition as part of the 2013 Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and was presented by DAZED as part of the Visionaries series.

    SYNOPSIS
    In a near future heavily influenced by the imminent boom of the Indian subcontinent, an emerging technology and economic superpower a new digital city has developed. The film follows a group of young children as they play a game of hide and seek (Chupan Chupai) in the bustling streets of this smart city. Through their play the children discover how to hack the city, opening up a cavernous network of hidden and forgotten spaces, behind the scenes of everyday streets.

    The project was shot on location in India and uses a mixture of animation and visual effects to embellish the design of the city and locations that are pictured.

    Based on a short story by Tim Maly
    Directed by FACTORY FIFTEEN
    Produced by Liam Young

  • Factory Fifteen brings the D&AD award pencil to life within several animated stings for the 2014 call for entries. Each category is represented within hidden animated worlds inside the D&AD yellow pencil award. Each world is built from several past winners of the award from each category, all brought to life in playful animation in a miniature model scale.
    The animation proceeds and follows a ‘I wish I’d done that’ interview of acclaimed design or advertising ambassadors as they talk through an example of a stand out piece which ‘they wish they had done’.  
    Factory Fifteen designed 3 ‘carousels’ for worlds within DESIGN, ADVERTISING & DIGITAL categories for the awards.
