Animated Video Production

Smith and Foulkes

William Gadea 03.30.2009

My friend Shirleyann, who was in my film It’s About My Brother, appears in this charming commercial that Smith and Foulkes directed for Comcast. It’s a good excuse to link to their reel.

I love these guys’ work… they use different techniques, but always there’s great sense of timing, lovely design and a wry wit. The Coca-Cola spot they made in a video game style is probably my favorite. Also, it’s not there, but the MasterCard girl-and-piggy-at-the-hotel spot is theirs too. Smith and Foulkes missed out on the Best Animated Short Oscar this year, but they probably are the premier commercial directors of animation these days. Bravo to them.
