SEAMLESS

by ANDY BAKER

In celebration of its 20-year anniversary, Seamless teamed up with Hornet's Andy Baker and BBH NY to create an epic homage to New York City. The film is scored with a rewritten version of Starship's "We Built This City"—more aptly named "We Fueled This City"—and it's packed full of shout-outs, Easter eggs, and moments that any New Yorker will instantly recognize. With masterful character design and complete comittment to detail, this film honors the city that Seamless has been serving through blizzards and blackouts over the last 20 years.

Ever since he can remember, London native Andy Baker has been obsessed with animation. From over-the-top films like Disney’s Fantasia to Sunday morning regulars Tom & Jerry, he was hooked. Having studied Fine Art in his formative years, Andy went on to pursue a degree in illustration and animation from Kingston University, tailoring his approach and finding his niche somewhere in between the two.

Shortly after graduating, Andy - along with some friends - formed multi-disciplinary studio This Is It Collective and started taking on commercial work. Their first collaborative project Viceworld, an energetic title sequence for VICE UK, landed This Is It Collective on the map for up-and-coming animators and gave Andy the support he needed to develop his craft.

Since then, Andy has collaborated with multiple artists and illustrators for clients such as Vans, Warner Brothers, Marmite, Ricard, Adidas & Asics. His character driven work and 2D cel techniques, combined with his use of bold color, liquid transitions and old school animation style make Andy’s range of work completely contemporary while remaining undeniably classic.
