Kate studied sculpture at the Slade and started work as a director, editor and cameraman Jey studied Sonic Arts at Middlesex University and began as a sound and digital media designer. “When we are Duckeye we draw on this variety of skills and ways of creating and discover original and innovative ways of working”.

Nokia

Hands

Animation

Transition after transition in a super pleasing and awe-inspiring sequence for Nokia, Duckeye used a selection of ideas – some of them very inventive, for example transforming shapes from three dimensional to two in-camera, in one smooth movement. Paired with this is a very considered, design-led style that has a universal appeal and timelessness.

Jey and Kate were given a set of T-shirts for Nike’s ‘Sport Is Art’ fashion range and asked to make them come to life. Naturally they rose the challenge, far exceeding all expectations and hopes by producing a set of super dynamic, clever set of spots that skilfully mixes media and techniques.

Short Film

Atelic

Live Action

A close study and amazingly sympathetic rendering of raw movement and the human form as abstract, organic shapes. At the same time this is contrasted with a regimented grid that divides the image and adds a geometric facet that adds depth and balance.

Peugeot

Just Add Fuel

Animation

A long-running television campaign for Peugeot, this spot exhibits an ability to execute commercial ideas in a skilled handmade style that importantly has universal, mainstream appeal. At the same time, from an artistic point of view, its simplicity and execution can’t help but be admired.

Sew My Name

Another delve into the more macabre side – a textured grain with a morose feel, almost like a journey over the rooftops of Prague on a cold winters night.
