JAMES JARVIS AND RICHARD KENWORTHY TEAM UP FOR MTV
In a series of new station idents, MTV World Design Studio has produced three shorts working with such talented animation entities as Buck NY (for whom a Think Tank member is now interning), and creators of the recent Gorillaz short that drew tons of attention, Arnaud & Jerome. The most compelling of these three shorts, however, may be the reuniting of James Jarvis and Richard Kenworthy for the 20 second film of a group of little blue skateboarders hanging out and busting a nice trick. The film stays true to Jarvis’ unique style and Kenworthy’s meticulous attention to detail, and rings bells of the two’s first venture together, the self-imposed 5-minute running ad for Nike from 2009.
All three will air on the network this week.
