The last few posts on this blog followed what happened when an advertising agency enlisted our help to make online advertisements for pork snacks.
The 3 videos posted below were compromised by various behind-the-scenes issues involving the client asking us to do things, and then censoring us when we did what they asked (e.g. they sent us to the offices of Zoo Magazine, as part of a challenge aimed at Zoo readers, which was promoted on the Zoo website . . . and then demanded we remove the depictions of bare skin that were included in the resultant video because it apparently wasn’t suitable for their intended audience . . . of Zoo magazine readers).
It was a rather stressful and creatively frustrating period of time.
Against our judgment, it has been decided to leave the final cliffhanger unresolved. Thus only the 3 episodes below were ever released by our wise employers. We in fact filmed a further 2 episodes (footage of which can be seen in episode 3′s NEXT TIME trailer) . . . but then those 2 episodes were botched together on the client’s orders into 1 episode . . . which they insisted on censoring/editing to pieces . . . and then inexplicably never released.
I mention all of this simply in case someone happens upon these videos and thinks we are to blame for the unresolved cliffhanger. We are not.
And now that we are free from the bizarre and contradictory demands of meat manufacturers, we have been able to focus our creative potential into something that is actually good. Something that we have been allowed to produce without anybody else trampling all over our ideas. It is a film called The Last Bookshop.
It has nothing to do with the world of Konkerbury (neither for that matter did The Wicked Pig Challenges) but both of those projects, and The Last Bookshop were produced by us chaps over at The Bakery and so you will no doubt hear more about it all very soon…
