Enterprise Ireland
'Retailer Solutions' 1 x 2'30"

"When Retailer Solutions began to organise an event to showcase the array of Irish companies developing retail-based technologies to retailers in the UK, they approached Tangerine about the idea of producing a video to help demonstrate their great work.Tangerine duly obliged, working together with Retailer Solutions to provide a fresh and colourful piece of video which is not-your-average corporate vid.  
The piece tells the tale of a day in the life of a consumer, as she visits the supermarket, the phone shop and the department store, seeking out the best offers, the most convenience and that personal touch.
All of us here at Tangerine who worked on the piece were delighted to hear that it went down very well at the event in the Irish Embassy in London on June 14th.  A job well done!"

Tangerine have just produced all motion graphics for Offset 2012 with Sound Design provided by Sound Butlers.

Sideline and the Rubberbandits team up for Channel 4 Comedy Blaps
Sideline has produced three shorts written and performed by Irish comedy duo The Rubberbandits for a new online initiative for Channel 4 in the UK.
 The new initiative called Comedy Blaps, saw over 500 companies apply for eight slots from all over the UK and Ireland. It aims to provide visitors to the site with fresh comedy talent every Thursday through to mid-December. Sideline is the first Irish production company to successfully have a scripted comedy commissioned by Channel 4.
Billy McGrath, executive producer at Sideline commented on the initiative saying, "The talent and comic vision of The Rubberbandits shines through and the three online shorts reveal the unique world of Blindboy and Mr. Chrome as never seen before. Kudos too, to Paul Boland, Joe Clarke and Paul Webb, who ensured that Limerick embraced the filming of the Blaps. With director Declan Lowney on board each episode is so different in style and we are happy that all in Channel 4 are delighted with the end product"
The three shorts include 'The Concert', which is now live on the website, sees The Rubberbandits trying to come up with a new song ahead of a big concert. 'The Alarm Clock' which will live in two weeks time and 'Spoiling Ivan' which will go live a fortnight later.
The shorts were directed by Declan Lowney (Little Britain, Father Ted) and produced by Dee Ellis (Ask Rhod Gilbert, The Panel). Executive production was by Billy & Gerry Kelly of Sideline.

Tangerine and Tidal 'Stand Up Tall' with singer Ryan Sheridan
He's the latest king of pop rock whose debut album is taking the charts by storm. And now fans can enjoy Ryan Sheridan's new single, Stand Up Tall, complete with music video courtesy of Tangerine Post Production.
Taken from the album The Day You Live Forever, which hit the charts at No 2, the Monaghan man's stomping release inspired Director Simon Eustace (Won't Leave You Alone, The Coronas) of Tidal Production to create a video with a gritty, cinematic feel, shot on RED with intercutting scenes of Ryan and his band performing and an emotive short film of a schoolboy who stand up to a gang of bullies.

The video was edited by Dan Gannon (Gavin Friday -Able, "Head Chef", TV3) and produced by Tidal. From busking on the streets of Dublin to supporting Bryan Adams and wowing the crowds at Electric Picnic - expect to hear a lot more from this formidable singer-songwriter.

Oscar Wilde gets a modern makeover
Accomplice Television, RTÉ Young Peoples Programming and Tangerine have taken the Oscar Wilde classic play, The Importance of Being Ernest, and transformed it into a 30 x 3 minute drama series, The Importance of Being Whatever. Directed by IFTA award-winning brothers Rob and Ronan Burke ('Aisling's Diary'), the modern drama was written by Iseult Golden and David Horan ('Belonging to Laura'), along with DOP Dave Grennan, who also shot the series on RED MX camera.

The series is inspired by the original play and tells the story of a super-conscientious Leaving Cert student, who invents an alter ego to impress the girl of his dreams, but finds that managing his two lives is harder than he ever imagined.  Showcasing some of Ireland's emerging talent, including Kwaku Fortune (Tobi), Lauren Coe (Emma) and Laoise Murray (Cecily/Cocobeans), the result is a quirky, stylish and fresh update of a classic play.

Picture post production was handled by Tangerine. Editor Anna Maria O'Flanagan worked for just over 2 months on the 30 X 3 minute episodes, the 9 X 9 minute omnibus versions and the 90-minute feature. The series was edited from start to finish at 2K and then graded by Richard Callaghan, also at 2K, and delivered to RTE for broadcast on digibeta with A HDCAM version for future HD broadcast. The individual 3-minute episodes are airing three evenings a week on RTE2 at 18.30pm and the full-length feature will be broadcast on RTÉ over the Christmas holidays.

Tangerine Posting 'Climb for Kids' New Documentary; Kathryn Thomas, Sile Seoige face Kilimanjaro Challenge
When a team of celebrities took on the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, they had no idea how tough it would be to reach the top. The documentary 'Climb for Kids', which was produced and directed by Michael Sheridan, follows their grueling six-day trek to the summit - a whopping 5,800 mtrs above sea level.

TV presenters Kathryn Thomas and Sile Seoige and comedians Karl Spain and Alan Shortt are among the celebrities and fundraisers who fought altitude sickness, exhaustion and dehydration to raise more than EUR 250,000 for the Children's Medical Research Foundation.

Colin Farrell narrates their journey in a one-hour documentary that airs on RTÉ One on July 18th at 9.30pm. Tangerine edited, graded and delivered the programme, waiving all post-production costs in aid of the Crumlin Kids charity. Previous charitable projects for Crumlin Kids productions include 'The Viking Run' (shot in Norway) and the 'Shamrock Run' (shot in America), both produced and directed by Sheridan.

Alan Shortt reveals how the Kilimanjaro challenge took him to the edge. "If every footprint I left on the mountain, is worth one euro to the children of Crumlin, then the climb to the summit will be a massive achievement," he said. "Not everyone made it but each individual fought their own challenge over our six exhausting days. It certainly was the toughest experience of my life."

Catch 'Climb for Kids' on RTÉ One July 18th at 9.30pm.

Tangerine were selected to produce and design the background graphics for Jedward's 'Lipstick' Eurovision performance.
 Senior Motion Graphics at Tangerine Marc Sherwin was responsible for the project from start to finish;

"I was delighted to be asked to design the graphics for Jedward's performance. The boys already have a strong graphic look incorporating geometric shapes and patterns and usually featuring quite bold colours so I wanted to translate that look to motion in a way that would suit both the track and the intense energy of the boys. We managed to source footage from a previous shoot Jedward had done for "all the small things". The twins really deliver when they are on set so there were tonnes of shots that never made it into the music video, which we were able to adapt for 'Lipstick'. The shots were keyed, re-timed and rendered ready for use on the new background. I broke the track up into verse, chorus, middle eight etc, and planned what type of animation would feature in each section. I felt it was really important to keep every graphic element timed to the tempo of the music track. Colour wise we went with red, white and black, which fitted with Jedward's look and suited the song perfectly. With the finishing touches made and bright red lipstick added we were ready to deliver to Germany for test runs, which thankfully went well.
With the screen being so big (18 metres high and 60 metres wide) I wanted to use it to the full and make sure that whatever angle was chosen on the night, would be enhanced by the graphics behind. I hope it was!''

Ireland finished a respectable 8th place securing a place in Azerbaijan for the 2012 Eurovision and Jedward also won the Marcel Bezencon Artistic Award

Firebrand Productions series 'Teens in the Wild' has won the Education category in the Celtic Media Festival 2011.
