MPC's Star-Studded Spot 'Be Cool Be Nice' Aims to End Cyberbullying
The spot was made with Sunshine for anti-bullying movement Be Cool Be Nice
The official Be Cool Be Nice animated film made by MPC features a cast of characters with designs from fashion all-stars Christopher Bailey, Pat McGrath, Chaos Fashion, Henry Holland and more. Sunshine and MPC have collaborated with the anti-bullying movement Be Cool Be Nice to produce the animated music video featuring characters created with design direction from a cast of fashion all-stars.
The film’s characters have design and creative input from Christopher Bailey (Chief Creative Officer, Burberry), Pat McGrath MBE (Founder, Pat McGrath Labs), Chaos Fashion (super stylists of Fendi etc Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall), Henry Holland (Founder, House of Holland) and more. The characters originate from the Be Cool Be Nice book, on sale from 9 November 2017 in the UK (and on sale now in the US).
The international Be Cool Be Nice movement is aimed at helping to combat cyber-bullying by encouraging people to communicate and use social media in a positive and proactive way.
Al MacCuish, Founder & Creative Chairman, Sunshine stated: “Be Cool Be Nice is a dream partnership for Sunshine. Using creativity as a tool for good is part of our core values, and this cast of creative powerhouses on board are testament to the significance of this movement.”
Alex Snookes, VFX Supervisor (2D), MPC said:“Working closely with Sunshine, MPC’s team of ‘Life’ artists turned to music video nostalgia whilst bringing it bang up-to-date in order to create content a younger audience will enjoy – and with an awesome cast of CG characters to boot. Such a fun project and the cause makes it so much more rewarding”.
The Be Cool Be Nice movement launched last year with help from Kendall Jenner and Willow Smith on the covers of Garage magazine (Fall/Winter2016) and an unprecedented Snapchat x Be Cool Be Nice collaboration. The movement has also seen a Times Square takeover with animation by Sunshine and a window installation at The Conran Shop. The film will be distributed on Viacom’s network as interstitials on MTV and Nickelodeon.
