STRIPELAND are Ben Gerlis, Sean Hogan & Ben Austin, a Production Design collective working as one.

Most recently they collaborated with directing duo Tell No One (Good Egg) on a spot for Kinfolk which involved creating a 30ft silk parachute that forms the shape of a cube and then a house whilst collapsing to the ground.

A recent epic TWININGS commercial directed by Parabella (Blink Ink) that involved multiple set builds allowed Stripeland to create a world out of paper teabags that features both full scale and miniature set builds. Thousands of paper teabags were scored, folded, glued, painted and placed in situ by an army of model-makers to create vibrantly colourful and detailed sets. Twinings was shot using stop-motion and the multi-plane animation technique pioneered by Walt Disney in the 1930s…

STRIPELAND‘s other featured work includes DROPBOX for Johnny Kelly (Nexus) and multiple MITSUBISHI IDENTS directed by Bugsy (Good Egg) for Channel 4 that utilise in-camera optical illusions…

Nothing is what it seems.
