A Webby, a CLIO, and the Continuation of Humanity...

The Powerhouse team was informed today that the delightfully absurd Dikembe Mutombo Old Spice project we worked on last fall won some very prestigious advertising awards!

First of all, a HUGE congratulations to the entire team at Wieden + Kennedy Portland, Driftlab, and Adam Atomic for their work conceptualizing, writing, and developing this game. We had a blast working with every single person on the team.

Dikembe Mutombo's 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World won BOTH the Webby AND the People's Voice Award in the Game or Application Category as well as the Promotions and Contests Category. A very rare and impressive feat if we do say so ourselves...

It ALSO won the Gold Prize in the Digital/Mobile category for a CLIO Award! Check out this great summary video they posted about the entire campaign, featuring some of our cinematic animation.

Mrs Brown's Boys Premiere in Manchester

About 6 months ago, we announced that we were excited to be starting work on a pilot for Universal & The BBC. Well, after months of hard work, we've wrapped production on the pilot episode for the animated version of Mrs. Brown's Boys!

Last week, Powerhouse co-founders Bruce Tinnin and Frank Gabriel traveled to Manchester to attend the official premiere of our pilot. They had a great time, and even got to meet the cast of the live show, including writer/creator and Mrs. Brown him/herself, Brendan O'Carroll. Check out some photos from their trip below!

What is Powerhouse Creative?

If you follow this blog then you have probably already noticed that the good folks here at Powerhouse Animation recently launched a sister site called Powerhouse Creative. If this is news to you, then please take this time to head over there and check it out. I'll wait.

Now that we're all on the same page, Powerhouse Creative just finished our second promotional piece designed at explaining what we do while also subtly inundating viewers with embedded subliminal messages. If we've done our job, the calls should start flooding in at any minute. Check out the video below and share it with your friends and neighbors and relatives and whatnot. We really appreciate it.
