Furlined turned four this year and together with its U.K.-based partners Blink and music video arm, Colonel Blimp, celebrated with a slate full of creative projects. Blink director Dougal Wilson's imagination ran as wild as ever. Puppets were his playthings in the truly magical music video for Coldplay's "Life in Technicolor" and the warm and fuzzy "Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La" for Coca-Cola. He also drove hair wild in an old fashioned short for Sky Arts Opera.
We're hard pressed to find tabletop more funny?or inventive?than "Nannerpuss," from The Perlorian Brothers' spot for Denny's. Other highlights include Lynn Fox's gorgeous take on Timberland, Kosai Sekine's new flavor of fast-paced fun for adidas in "Break Up Service," and Terry Timely's sensory overloaded short film "Synesthesia." Outside the film lines, the company launched Blink Art, which produced Toyota print and posters by Pleix and is involved in an ongoing BBC project for Fallon. In the long form world, David Turnley is currently in postproduction on his documentary Shenandoah, which Furlined MD Diane McCarter is also executive producing.
