Run for UNICEF
After weeks of hard work and toil, Sunday 4th March finally came around and it was time for me to take part in the Puma Woburn 10k race which I was running in aid of United for UNICEF.

The weather was terrible with a howling wind blowing in my face but at least the rain held out until the end. The undulating course was a real challenge, especially the nasty hill after about 2km. It nearly finished most people off but I persevered, gritted my teeth and finished in a time of...1 hour and 1 minute

In the end, it was all worth it because after going through the pain barrier (several times) and still suffering aching legs two days later, I did manage (with the help of everyone here at Engine) to raise over £160 in donations for United for UNICEF.

United for UNICEF is a collaboration of two partners - the biggest football club in the world, Manchester United, and the largest international children’s charity, UNICEF. The aim of the charity is to "Increase awareness of issues affecting children across the globe."

For more information on our involvement with United for UNICEF please view our case study. To find out how to donate please visit the UNICEF website.

We have updated our showreel
People say: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". We don't agree and that's why we have just updated our showreel.

We wanted to add some of our recent work to it. So now you can see our TV work, Flash animation for Top Gear and much more.

You can view the showreel on the homepage or, if you want one to cherish forever, you can request a portfolio pack to be sent to you.

Engine moves in to Top Gear
Top Gear Magazine needed a realistic airbrushed illustration of Stig's helmet for the cover of the March issue. Of course they came to Engine. Instead of using a photograph, we created the illustration from scratch to give it a hyper-realistic feel.

We also created a 3D rendered animation for Ferrari's 60th Birthday Relay for the Top Gear website. The legendary car manufacturer is celebrating its 60th birthday with a totally over-the-top relay around the world. The animation details the exact route of the relay as it goes from continent to continent.

Check out our portfolio section to view the movie.

Club 2K Heaven
Our latest album and TV ad combo for Universal Music is about to hit the stores and screens this Monday.

Club 2K7, is a new brand for Universal Music and All Around the World, again showing everyone who’s the daddy when it comes to dance compilations. The TV advert takes the form of a journey, flying through an abstract club environment. We’ve taken viewers to another dimension with the creation of a 3D open space using flat vectors, dancers and promo videos.

With an initial media run of two weeks, make sure you check it out on Ch4, E4, Ch5, ITV 1 + 2 and various digital stations from this Sunday 11th February.

A full version is available to view in our portfolio area.
