DUCK Studios announced the addition of animator/director Ned Wenlock to its roster. Best known for a distinct, inventive and vibrant 2D animation style, Wenlock has worked across the advertising and music video worlds. His ad work, which has been featured at onedotzero, Annecy, Supertoon, and PromaxBDA, includes engaging spots for Honda and UBank. His music portfolio includes videos for CasioNova, MGMT, and Danger Beach’s Apache, which was selected by IdN magazine for its best of 2011 roundup.
“I love Ned’s work,” gushed DUCK EP Mark Medernach. “He is super talented and imaginative in his simplicity, always delivering highly original work that sucks the viewers in.”
“DUCK has an incredibly versatile and talented roster, and I’m proud to join them,” noted Wenlock. “It’s exciting to be part of a studio with top-notch facilities, an enormous web of connections, and the ambition to constantly take on new challenges.”
And those new challenges are surely on the way. With 2012 less than halfway over, DUCK has already fired off a barrage of visionary original work this year, including projects for Pop Tarts, The Shins, and a massive 12-spot campaign for the US Olympic Committee. Coming hot on the heels of DUCK’s acquisition of the award-winning director, Knife Party, Wenlock’s addition to the DUCK team marks yet another coup for the ever-expanding creative studio.
