Conkerco

Ben & Chris met at art college and have been collaborating ever since. With a background in animation, they blend rich photographic style with performance and inventive technique.

They established themselves with music videos for the likes of Bonobo & The Flaming Lips with their work being showcased around the world.

In 2013 they shot the short film 'Glance', a visually poetic journey through the potential relationship of two strangers as they pass in the street. Glance received a Vimeo staff pick and has been shown internationally at film festivals throughout in 2014.

WORK:
Cadbury
"Madbury"
Cadbury encourage people to go, er, "madbury" in this somewhat frenetic ad. The chocolate makers are asking the British public to enter a competition to come up with their latest flavour... although no doubt some punters are more concerned with bringing back old favourites. Despite animosity brought on by the brand's merger with American giant Kraft, this is a pacy enough confection.
