The Brief:

Director/Animator Jamie Caliri of LA-based production studio DUCK recently designed and animated the 02:18 title sequence for the highly anticipated feature film Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, which opened nationwide November 7th and features the voices of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Alec Baldwin.

I Like to Move It, one of four songs from the film's soundtrack created by Will.I.Am of Black Eyed Peas, moves the action along while the film's whimsical characters shamelessly provide their modern dance interpretations. Each film credit beckons a change in tribal-inspired backdrop and hilarious performance. The animation exhibits an almost 3D appeal, consequently engaging the audience.

Other recent standout work by DUCK includes highly acclaimed efforts for United Airlines, POMx, COX Cable, and opening titles for the short film TreKant directed by DUCK's most recent addition, Kompost.
