NERD Productions Signs Creative Studio Toast
NERD Productions has announced the signing of Toast, the 3D animation and illustration studio founded by brothers Chris and Tyler Guyot.
Toast was launched when these two siblings’ visions aligned after years of working solo in the industry.
Chris’ career began when he naturally discovered video editing and marrying audio cues through his love of music, playing the guitar in his parents' basement as a teen.
“What I loved most was the magic of making something 'come alive' on screen both visually and audibly. This naturally developed over time and evolved into the discovery and love for motion design," says Chris Guyot.
Interestingly enough, Tyler took inspiration from his brother. “When I was in high school I saw Chris enter a contest to create a poster for a human rights issue. I remember watching him spend, not even exaggerating, well over 70-80 hours on it over the course of several weeks. It was then that I developed an appreciation for the process, and decided this is the world in which I wanted to play in," he says.
Fast forward a few years, the studio has crafted for prestigious clients such as Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Disney and Nickelodeon to name a few.
NERD Productions founder Milana Karaica became drawn to Toast’s vibrant, playful yet tactically clean and sophisticated approach to 3D animation. "They describe their work as 'an extension of their imagination' and our worlds aligned more closely through our core values, what we stand for and what we’re aiming for. The signing was a no-brainer," she said.
