Hotbox Studios Web Design and Animation

  • Aegis the Union was formed in 1971 as a staff association, Aegis has since then grown in size and gained independent status as a trade union that focuses on workers' rights in the Finance Industry.

    The Aegis the Union website is driven by the Umbraco CMS. The website has been developed using a Responsive Web Design (RWD) to deliver content predictably to browsers on multiple devices. Advanced features provide secure content delivery for the 400+ Aegis the Union members.

  • Light Atlas is a Youth Dance Project, a joint initiative between Trinity Laban Conservatorie of Music and Dance and Greenwich Dance Agency.

    Hotbox Studios worked in collaboration with Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in producing 3D animation and visual effects for Light Atlas.

    The abstract animation was projected with the performance; created to compliment and add a further dimension to the choreography, score and lighting design.

  • Silex Silicones Ltd is a silicone manufacturing company with factories in the UK and Germany. Silex offers a wide variety of products from tubing, gaskets, sheeting, foams, mouldings, adhesives, oils, gels and so much more!

    We designed the Silex Silicones website using the Umbraco CMS and UCommerce. The Silex website details the hundreds of products and thousands of variations manufactured by the Hampshire based company. Customers can select and order direct from the Silex website.

  • Dust is a fine art film installation by Shirazeh Houshiary, animated by Mark Hatchard at Hotbox Studios, paired with the chanting of soprano Olivia Salvadori.

    The animation is presented as a projected film installation, the single projection broken into 49 separately animated cells.

    Within the animation we used fluid dynamics and subsurface scattering to produce the candle and smoke effects within the animated cells.
