Halloween Ends | Opening titles

December 13 2022

The pumpkins to end all Halloween movies!  Anyone who knows our creative director, Zenon Kohler knows he grew up watching 80’s slasher films, in particular Halloween (and has a figurine or two of the infamous Michael). So when we had the chance to work on the opening titles for Halloween Ends, he and the Squeak team did everything they could to secure the project. Collaborating closely with the director, David Gordon Green, we were able to workshop ideas and bring the title’s creative vision to life in a tight turnaround.  Die-hard fans will have noticed the splitting pumpkins in the opening are perfectly matched to jack-o’-lanterns in seven of the 13 Halloween films. The idea initially came from Green to film each pumpkin splitting apart on set. However, to give us more control over the lanterns and the gory pumpkin innards, we suggested changing the opening to a full CG…

Stranger Things Have Happened!

December 13 2022

We’ve seen ‘Stranger Things’ in the studio!  Big Stranger Things fans, the Squeak Design team were stoked to dive headfirst into The Upside Down and wrangle the fierce Demogorgon to promote the launch of Stranger Things Series 4.  Showcased in major cities around the world, including New York City, Los Angeles, and Stockholm, the Series 4 promotion needed to tease out the themes of the upcoming season and add to the anticipation of its release.

Spring SubBoat

Is there any better mode of transportation than a GIANT sub? (Asking for a friend).  This quirky commercial was a lot of fun to work on and an even cooler concept to think about the actual creation of the huge Subway sandwich.  Check it out!

Brisbane 2032 Olympics Here We Come! 

August 19 2021

Who could forget helping win the Olympics with Publicis and EKS!  The whole CE team was able to work across the two phases of the Olympic Bid project, some you saw on the big screen and others were for the IOC eyes only. There was a lot that went on behind the scenes, in fact, even the lovely CETS (Cutting Edge Tech Services) got on board, facilitating the all-important initial Bid live stream. While we can’t singlehandedly claim the win of Brisbane’s Olympic bid (as much as we would enjoy the bragging rights), we are incredibly proud to have been involved through the team at Publicis. Big thanks to our amazing team and to Publicis for trusting us to deliver.  See you all in 2032!

LOVE (ISLAND) IN A PANDEMIC

October 23 2020

Love Island, like a lot of productions and events, met many obstacles in 2020. Initially scheduled for production on location in Fiji, pandemic-induced travel restrictions meant the ITV team needed to rethink how and where the show could be produced. ITV America’s Executive Vice President of Post Operations & Technology Danielle DiStefano oversaw post production on the project from conception to delivery and says every department faced “huge challenges” in creating and delivering the show during a pandemic. “Our biggest hurdle was how to enable our teams to work together and deliver shows in a short turnaround, while working remotely,” DiStefano said. The production made the decision to relocate to Las Vegas, Nevada, occupying a number of spaces at Caesars hotel venues, including…
