We are happy to announce the release of our latest independent video: 0708 (a spiritual successor to 0506). It is a cute one-minute holiday piece based on beautiful new illustrations by Çiğdem.

We will do our best to have another one next year, instead of making you wait two years for a sequel :)

We are pleased to inform you that (with a little help from imago) our associated musician, Dağhan Kök, has launched the website of his sound studio Retronic Labs.

Introducing some minor changes on the website...

As more and more people switch to broadband connection, video bandwidth becomes less of an issue. From now on all the new videos added on the site will be presented in 4x the former size. Sometimes bigger is better.

Also, clicking on the video thumbnails will now take you directly to the video, with screenshots as an option one more click away. It will require you to click less to get to the goods!

It's been a busy couple of weeks here at imago and we didn't have any spare time to put the results of our work online. After catching some breath, however, we are happy to present you with a new project.

Garanti: Flexi Card is our first project done for Alametifarika. It consists of four 20 second ads promoting new credit card service offered by Flexi. It was quite a bit of fun for us to work on, and we're sure it will be as much fun for you to look at.

We're quite busy with commercial and indie works at the moment and barely have the time to update the portfolio. It seems it is still announcing second part of Snickers ad in the works - a piece finished half a year ago...

While you may need to wait some more for portfolio updates, we decided to roll out the reel for 2007 in a nice hi-res quality. We gave it its own sub-domain, so right now you have just one address to go to for the latest version of our reels. Enjoy!

Massive update! We waited and waited for months to have more spare time on our hands to do this. Spare time did not come, we are busy as always, but enough is enough.

A bit extra overtime and we finally managed to add new works to our portfolio.

First and foremost, after over 6 months of promises, we have S'NEK Autumn Fillers and S'NEK ID ready for viewing. As usual, we provide some backstage info on the projects. All AE scripters may be interested in the engine behind S'NEK ID Line-Ups and Program Promos.

Older stuff is not all we got for you! Brand new Snickers and Cola Turka ads are also available for your viewing pleasure. And soon there will be even more :)
