• Calling all contacts / friends / followers. 

    We are in need of 2 further locations for a new super awesome super secret music video we are directing in a few weeks; A rooftop and an empty ish office. We are exploring all options so if you think you might know somewhere who will let us shoot then please email paul@factoryfifteen.com. We are fully insured and are filming simple scenes so no explosives ;) 

    The rooftop needs to look like a rooftop not a decked nice place, somewhere your not supposed to be, epic view not essential but preferred.

    Office preferably empty as we are going to build a little set of desks but we are also exploring operational offices too.

    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.
