Last year, All Ages created an ADDY Award-winning promo for Syfy’s hit show The Expanse by recapping season one … with cats. This year, Bravo asked if we could do it again for their hit show The Shahs of Sunset!
Directed by Ted Passon and shot by DP Zac Rubino, All Ages assembled a cast of twelve cats with custom costumes and wigs on six different sets. Costumes were designed and created by Fabric Horse’s Carrie Collins, with sets created under the artistic direction of Beau Kegler.
All of the post work was handled at our Walnut Street studio, from animating mouths to final compositing and color. Our talented team had to do some expert mustache tracking, after our feline talent demurred wearing fakes.
Production took place at Expressway Cine’s new cyc studio, located at their East Falls facility, and the spot premiered last week via a People Magazine exclusive.

Our fabulous head animator, Harvey Benschoter, just directed an insane music video for Washed Out! Ernest Greene, the principal musician behind the name, tapped Harvey to direct an animated take on his new track “Get Lost” after seeing Harvey’s award-winning short film “Turkey.” The music video was painstakingly created over two months to achieve this stunning level of detail.
The video premiered on Pitchfork and was written up by the New York Times as a must-see.

We ended 2016 in production for a new promo for the hit Syfy series The Expanse! The show is an epic and gritty outerspace drama and to get people excited for season two we recreated key moments from season one using cats instead of people. We are super thankful for our tireless art and costume departments headed by Lenore Romas and Carrie Collins (Fabric Horse), respectively, who made over eight amazing sets and fifteen unbelievable costumes. Check out the behind the scenes video HERE and the final spot HERE. Check out an interview with Ted and Dave about the project HERE.

We spent the weeks leading up to November 8th filming a documentary for a brilliant new initiative by Google and Pro-Publica. The two information power-houses came together to form a landmark project called Electionland, in which new technologies help journalists find, verify, and cover voting issues at the polls in record time. We sent three teams to New York, Miami, and Philadelphia to cover what will no doubt go down as a landmark election day.
