THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF

by PARABELLA

Directors Parabella bake a stop motion extravaganza for Channel 4's The Great British Bake Off.  If anyone knows stop motion, you understand it is an intensely time consuming exercise in patience and requires a mind oriented towards the meticulous.

So you can imagine how this is compounded tenfold when you add baking to the process of stop motion: welcome to the trailor for this season's favorite baking competition. The level of R&D with professional bakers to perfect the practical bakes caught in camera is laudable, not to mention the staggering 500 eggs, 50kg of flour and 28kg of sugar used along the way. The pay off is a fantastic and surreal journey through a land of singing, dancing, vomiting and rising delicacies.

An exciting merger of two animation greats, Mikey Please partnered with long time friend and collaborator Dan Ojari in 2014 to form Hornet directing collective Parabella.

A major animating force behind Please’s Marilyn Myller, as well as the 2011 BAFTA winning stop motion film The Eagleman Stag, Ojari is widely known for his own epic short Slow Derek. The film took on the festival circuit in 2012 and screened at Sundance and Cannes Film Festival, among numerous other international heavy hitters.
