Mad Hat Teases Black Panther

Editor: Tricia Carey // Sound Design: Soundbyte

"Kickass film, kickass clients."

That's what our senior editor, Tricia Carey had to say about her experience editing the TNT trailer for Black Panther, which became the highest grossing superhero movie in the US this week! “The Turner creatives are such passionate, talented people," she adds. Mad Hat Creative is excited to have had the opportunity to be part of this unprecedented chart-topping phenomenon.

We would also like to give a shout out to our friends at Soundbyte, who composed this spot’s original rhythmic track and did the sound mix, making this spot an extra-special stand out.


Kadunks Alive

Back by demand — sour faces return to the big screen.

Last year's audiences relished at the delight of seeing people squirm at the intoxicating taste of Kadunks’ sweet gummies and sour goo. This year, for its second on-air campaign, the candy is back and gets up close and personal. Mad Hat Creative brought the creative to life from production to post, designing and executing the shots, animating the characters and delivering a spot with an attitude.

Ruffling Feathers with RaceTrac


What’s better than adults acting ridiculous in public? Adults acting ridiculous in giant bird costumes in public.

And of course, as you probably guessed, Mad Hat’s DP Misha Mazor and his team captured it all on camera. We soared through this shoot with RaceTrac to bring their Early Bird concepts to life, and we believe the results will really "ruffle your feathers." (sorry)


What we do in our free time...

Some families play board games for fun. Director Sean Brown's family, on the other hand, spends the weekends making films. Check out the commercial featuring some of Mad Hat's most popular kids – Sean's Addy and Tucker. This thirty seconds of joy in just a day but will be remembered for years.

Mad Hat is Happy to Welcome...
