a trip on the bronson

The finished product is an absolute bonkers promo for Santa Cruz Bicycles produced by Cut Media 


Cut Media charged us with the responsibility for designing and animating the characters for this piece as well as taking on some of the compositing work with a very short turn around. The film follows ridiculously talented rider Josh ‘Ratboy’ Bryceland and as his mates K-Rad and Loose Dog accompany him through a trippy day on his bike.

The character design ended being a stylised verson of the real individuals look and characteristics. They had to match the energy and vibe of the real K-Rad and Loose. 


The project was a joy to work on.

We love 2D animation on live action and the wackier the better!

At The 2D Workshop we’re obsessed with the art of filmmaking. Whether we’re creating character designs and animation for a jaw dropping ad campaign, bringing VFX magic to an all-star feature length TV bonanza or writing and developing our own IP to showcase all that we LOVE about film. QUALITY is key.

No matter the project our remit stays the same – provide a UNIQUE, CINEMATIC, ARTISTIC piece that delivers the client’s message in the strongest way possible. We tailor our writing, directing, design and animation to each client’s specific requirements. No two projects are the same which suits us to a tee as we endeavour to develop techniques and styles, continually diversifying our filmmaking arsenal.

Situated in the ever inspiring city of EDINBURGH, The 2D Workshop’s team consume and create as much content as possible with an ENERGY and PASSION that has translated directly into each project we’ve delivered since we set up shop in 2012.

If you have a project that deserves an IMAGINATIVE, DYNAMIC, DEDICATED team bringing it to life, get in touch! We’d love to chat more.
