Karni & Saul love a good juicy visual and an emotional gripping story.
The BAFTA nominated directing duo like to create what they call “casual fantasy”, a place where beautiful photography and film can meet animation and magical elements. They have produced and directed award-winning short films, ads, and music promos across several different disciplines. Clients include Katie Melua, The Staves, Micha p hinson, Beth Orton, Flogging Molly, Sainsbury’s, and Maynards amongst others.
In 2010, Karni & Saul showcased their short film, Turning, a story of a magical afternoon with a boy and three huge birds. The film screened at festivals worldwide before being nominated for a BAFTA in 2011.
Their second short film, Flytopia (2012) was also a hit on the festival circuit winning several awards. Flytopia was commissioned by Film4 and based on a dark fantastical Will Self story. A very itchy film indeed.
They are currently developing an animated children’s series as well as writing two features and a couple of kid’s books.
They’re also currently developing their own bristol based animation and production company Sulkybunny.
