At TANDEM we've had a busy start to the year.

David Daniels directed a series of spots for the new William Hill campaign, collaborating with Ben Walker and Matt Gooden at BMB and a new campaign for Nokia on which he worked with creatives Richard Dorey and Mark McCall from Wieden+Kennedy.

TANDEM directors have created two short films based on novels for publishing house Canongate Books. The brief was to give an essence of their chosen books through a short animated film, giving the directors a blank canvas on which to create their perception of the story. Chris Gavin made a stop-motion film for Dan Rhodes' latest book, Little Hands Clapping. His minute long film has been featured in Shots and Creative Review. Daniel Greaves made a film to promote the book The Last Werewolf, by Glen Duncan. Russell Pay of Shrooty created the sound on both films.

Chris Gavin also directed a series of five idents for I-Robot. The idents use a combination of 2D and 3D to great effect.
