We recently worked with our friends at Treatment Studios to create a film shown globally on U2’s iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour featuring a singing Johnny Cash. Not only does Johnny sing along to track ‘The Wanderer’ he is shown in 6 stages throughout his life, growing older over the duration of the song. A technical masterclass from Atyp or simply witchcraft?!

Our creative director Merlin Nation spoke at the latest Blab Talks event in Manchester on the 2nd of July. Merlin took the audience through some early projects including Bafta award winning branding work for MTV and animation for Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker’s Nathan Barley series (still hilarious!). He went on to talk in detail about the creative and production process of some key Atyp projects. Judging by the post-talk reaction on twitter the audience enjoyed themselves. Also speaking was local creative technologist Dan Hett who was thoroughly entertaining! Thanks to Matt Booth for inviting us and you can watch the talk here.
