NEW YORK, NY – November 16, 2010 – FilmTecknarna (

), the storytelling and design studio with headquarters in Stockholm and offices in New York, recently added Barcelona-based director collective Bungalow to their roster. Bungalow is becoming known as one of the top motion design companies coming out of Spain. Partners Ibon Landa, Ignasi Font, Marco Petrucci, and Ivan Jurado, founded Bungalow in March 2010, having worked together for several years at Garage Films under the moniker, Fake Studio. Bungalow’s versatile skill-set includes live action, still photography, illustration and animation – which they frequently combine in unique and unexpected ways. Bungalow’s design-driven work includes a spot for Audi, which fuses graphic illustrations of nature and live cinematography with animation. Another recent Bungalow project for MTV Canada spot features three aspiring teenage graffiti artists spraying a wall with black paint, that erupts into a towering animated ominous creature. Other brands Bungalow has directed spots for include Coca-Cola, Mango, Seat, Skoda, and Sony PSP.

Bungalow’s creative portfolio includes advertising agencies such as DDB, Vinizius Young & Rubicam, TBWA, Bassat Ogilvy, Sra. Rushmore, Villarrosas, Atletico International, Road, and Doubleyou. About FilmTecknarna Stockholm’s FilmTecknarna was created by Lars Ohlson, Jonas Odell, and Stig Bergqvist out of their common passion for graphic art and animation.

FilmTecknarna’s impressive body of work includes a series of high-profile and award-winning films, music videos, TV series, and commercials for both the Nordic and international markets. The firm naturally evolved into a storytelling and design production studio, creating classic 2D animation, CGI, and 3D animation, as well as live action.
