The Blend Is Near

Our friends at Wine After Coffee asked us to create the opening titles for Blend Fest 2017. It was an open brief with one little twist – include the names of the 350+ attendees in addition to the guest speakers.

A harmless trip to the pet shoppe unleashes spherical chaos on Canada’s western provinces. Think Gremlins but with more balls. A runaway pet starts bowling for humans, absorbing everything in its path until it inevitably bursts, spilling its creative juices everywhere.
