THE INK TANK has produced "Hockey Monkey," a mixed-media music video for
Nickelodeon's KA-BLAM!, which will air this spring. The 1-minute, 30-second
piece follows a group of live-action adults who are in search of a monkey.
Unbeknownst to them, the animated monkey is in an ice hockey match with a
group of cut-out animated kids. For The Ink Tank, R.O. Blechman was
creative director; Brian O'Connell, executive producer/co-director; Jesse
Gordon, live-action director/cameraman; Maciek Albrecht, cut-out
designer/director of animation; Tissa David, cel animator; Alexandra
Reshanov, cut-out animator and David Courter, After Effects/compositor.
Nickelodeon credits include executive producers Bob Mittenthal, Chris
Viscardi, Will McRobb and Mike Rubiner. The music was composed and
performed by The Zambonis who also appear as the video's adult characters,
while the Hockey Monkey was designed by comic artist James Kochalka.
