Its been a while so here’s a wee update of the Wyld Stallyons Summer…

See No Evil: 1st June, 2010.

We were invited by our good friends Tiago Maia and James Wignall to share a piece of the the Wyld Stallyons pie to an audience at See No Evil - a bi-monthly event held at Bar Kick.

Chris Sayer and Jason Arber adorned with Mexican wrestling masks fronted the talk about our recent projects and revealing the processes and stories behind the jobs along with showcasing previously unseen work that we did for Ministry of Sound.

Glug: D&AD Student Awards After Party: 20th June, 2010.

You may have also seen us at Glug - we were asked to host a 'Meet and Greet' in order for graduates to come and have a chat about life in the in the industry and for us to give them some invaluable insights into the scary transition from working within a professional environment. Natalie, Jason, Chris and myself , Janey, all enjoyed the enjoyed barbecue and beers whilst chatting to students about the next stages for their budding careers. As ever the event had a huge turnout and was a great opportunity to meet some fresh giftedpeople.

If you managed to come and speak to us then drop us an email to let us know what you are up to - or if you didn't manage to come along then get in touch with your showreels as we are always on the look out for talented individuals.

Computer Arts - Jason Arber - 23rd September, 2010.

Our very own Jason Arber was asked to contribute to Computer Arts' Graduate Showcase Event at Cafe 1001 in September; an annual compilation of the best final-year student design work from around the world. He joined John McFaul, Richard Tilley, Matt Booth and Dan Moore to provide inspiration and insight to career hungry graduates. Jason spoke about the benefits of adopting a unique approach to work and also presented previously unseen content, which should be appearing on our site very soon. Additionally, Jason spoke about the work we did on the movie Kick Ass and also revealed a sneak preview into a brand new project we have been working on behind closed doors.

Sneaky peak into our upcoming short film:

That's right Wyld Stallyons has been working on a new short film, which will be appearing in the viral world at the beginning of 2011. Jason Arber finally lives a director's dream by screenwriting and directing the exciting high octane action short that is Magnesium with Chris Sayer managing the highly intricate VFX side. This really has something for everyone; featuring CGI robots, kick ass female Biodroids, guns, explosions and lots of bloody fights! After 4 weekends of hardcore shooting with excellent cast and crew, we are finally getting close to wrap. We will be shooting the pick-up shots next month then will begin the hefty edit and visual effects nestled in-between our day jobs. Trust me it will be worth the wait!

Cast and Crew in filming location: Jaguar Shoes, East London.

Coming Soon: Kick Ass (2010)

Wyld Stallyons make our feature film debut in the movie Kick Ass, producing approximately 88 visual effects shots with Double Negative, including a great number of screen replacements. Much-anticipated, Kick Ass ticks all the boxes with politically incorrect humour, vulgarity and intense bloody super stylised action. Needless to say, this is not your typical superhero movie…

We can only dangle a teaser of this superhero awesomeness as you will have to check it out on the big screen.

2010 has already been a busy and exciting year for Wyld Stallyons in our new studio so here is a quick update…

We’ve been working on the new Hardys (the wine brand) sponsorship idents for Come Dine With Me. Working closely with the creative agency we developed a concept that would combine live action and animation. We shot the live action last month over two days at a Studio in West London with some of the regular Wyld Stallyons crew. The idents should air around the 27th March so keep a look out for them on those lazy Sundays of Come Dine With Me marathons.

In case you haven’t checked it out already, visit our homepage for the MTV and VHI bumpers. Wyld Stallyons produced three strands for the rebrand of new channels, MTV Shows, MTV Classics as well as the existing VH1.

Also up our sleeves for 2010 is our latest showreel. We will be posting a medley with some teasers in the near future– so stay tuned.
