Collosal Media Live
This is a great short film made by the team at Collosal Media and gives a real insight into some of the techniques used to produce brickads in particular it includes footage of the ‘pouncebag’ method of transferring the outline design onto the wall. The campaign highlighted here is for Dewar’s and the work has that aged, classic style to it. However, much of Collosal’s work is more contemporary in style, much closer to billboards than old ghost signs.
Having contacted Collosal I’m told they’re working on another short film like this which I’ll post as soon as I see it.
Nice work guys!
