From the front!

Incident Command App

August 16, 2016

"Incident Command" is a multiplayer mobile training game/app designed to help emergency hospital personnel prepare for disaster scenarios by developing their communication skills and teamwork under pressure. The game is quick and repeatable, and is designed to work in tandem with traditional tabletop and real-world training exercises as part of a more complete training picture.

The game was funded by the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency. It is currently in private beta and available for testing on iOS. A public release and support for other platforms is coming soon.

Psychic Bunny Signs With Yvette Represents!

August 28, 2015

We are excited to announce we have signed with Yvette Lubinsky of Yvette Represents for west coast representation in advertising and marketing!

After careful consideration and about seventy trillion emails, phone calls, and meetings it was clear that Yvette would be a great match for the spirit of our company and our work as directors. We’re excited to be working with her and join the formidable companies on her roster.

ShoreTel’s New Product Launch

August 20, 2015

We collaborated closely with the KERN Agency to write, direct, and produce a suite of videos for ShoreTel about their new unified communications solution: ShoreTel Connect. This included shooting a live-action “A Day in the Life” video to show off the actual product, and 3 animated videos to highlight the differences between ShoreTel and their competitors. Producing all 4 videos together saved our client time, money, and gave the suite a complimentary look and feel.

Just another day in the life of Psychic Bunny.

See the suite featured on ShoreTel's homepage or watch "A Day In The Life" Here!

For info on the video's life after production, check out ShoreTel's blog!

Psychic Bunny Turns 10!

May 01, 2015

Our big ten-year bash was a huge success. Hosted at Angel City Brewery just a few blocks from our downtown offices, we partied the night away with Angel City’s delicious brews and grub from the Slanging Corea food truck.  But what really made the party great was reconnecting with all the people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting over the past ten years. It's amazing how many clients, filmmakers, and past employees it takes to keep a company going, and how many have become our dear friends. So a big THANK YOU to everyone who has made our journey possible. On to future projects, future collaborators, and even wilder creativity.


Behind The Scenes At LoL Championship 2014

February 18, 2015

We approach all our documentary work with a fly on the wall vibe while still getting stellar, cinematic footage.  Interviews are conducted as people work or move between locations, so nothing feels staged, our subjects stay in the moment, and everyone can still get their jobs done.  We worked with Riot Games at the previous League of Legends World Championship here in Los Angeles, and that was child’s play compared to the show they put on in Seoul. This time around the stadium was larger, the performance was crazier, and the band was one of the biggest acts on the planet. Even so, the guys from Imagine Dragons are incredibly down-to-earth, and it was a real treat to see them let loose their true gamer selves, enjoying the Seoul nightlife playing LoL at a PC Bang until the wee hours.

The final performance, in front of 40,000 fans, was a brilliant capper to an incredible three day shoot. It’s always a pleasure to work with the team at Riot Games, and it was an honor to get a glimpse behind the scenes with the fine fellows in the band.  We are extremely pleased to see our Behind-The-Scenes released as part of the launch for their new album.

Two Triangles Walk Into A Bar And The Circle Says…

June 11, 2014

Storytelling has been an integral part of the human experience for millennia. Psychic Bunny recently explored this concept with Creative Technologies at USC through the Heider-Simmel film which uses simple shapes to illicit stories. We had a lot of fun showing the film to comedians which you can see here, and was featured on a podcast NPR did exploring mankind's inclination for storytelling.

May 21, 2014

Director Rick Castaneda, producer Doug Spice, actress Kristina Guerrero, AD John Ross, and sound designer Lawrence Everson returned to their alma mater Wednesday to showcase Cement Suitcase as part of USC's Alumni Screening Series.

The film was warmly received in the newly rebuilt George Lucas Building that didn't exist when these oldtimers used to attend. After a lively Q&A panel, the filmmakers milled around and reminisced about the time Doug got expelled from film school, the pranks that John would play on his freshman roomate, and which buildings were Rick's favorite ones to nap in.

This is your brain on SCIENCE!

February 13, 2014

In 1944, Dr. Fritz Heider and Dr. Mary-Ann Simmel ran a psychological experiment with a short animated film they created to study social perception and causal attribution. 70 years later, we got our hands on it...

The Institute of Creative Technologies asked us to redo the experiment and our reactions were 1) SCIENCE! and 2) Time to call in the improv crew! We brought in a top-notch team, including folks from the Upright Citizens Brigade LA and The Groundlings Theater LA and recreated the experiment.

Batonk! Kickstarter Launched

November 19, 2013

We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for Batonk!, a "robot sport" where players compete to control adorable and slightly snarky robots on the field of glory. The robots dumbly follow a command until they get a new command, or score a goal. Depending on the combination of cards you use, you can confuse the robots by sending conflicting commands, or even team up with one of your opponents to gang up on other players. It's somewhere in the realm between soccer, Uno, and Super Smash Bros. It takes no time at all to learn how to play and is easy enough that even the self-identified "non-gamers" can pick it up and have a blast.

Check out this video to see how to play!

We love it, and we know you will too, so we're asking for a little help to build on our progress so far. We've been using every spare minute we have to build the core game system, but if we reach our goal, we can work on this full-time to finish the art, add support for more devices, polish up the gameplay and user experience, and bring the game to OUYA and PC.

Please visit our Kickstarter page to read more about this adorably snarky robot sports game and the great rewards that can be scored by investing early on.

Our session is on Saturday from 12:30 to 2:30pm.

The movie tells the story of Franklin, the best wine salesman in the Yakima Valley, who discovers that his girlfriend is cheating on him and then accidentally befriends the “other man”.   "More than anything, this is a film about letting go," said Castañeda.  "Writing the film was a way of giving myself the courage to actually take chances myself."

A Short Film for Veterans Day

November 12, 2012

In 1917, while recovering from shell shock in a Scottish war hospital, Wilfred Owen wrote "Dulce Et Decorum Est," considered by many to be the preeminent poem of World War I. Owen was later returned to the front, only to be shot and killed on November 4, 1918 – one week before the end of the war.

Today, 95 years later, tens of thousands of US and NATO troops serve out a 10th year of combat in Afghanistan, and continue to struggle and die against a resilient and determined enemy. Doug Spice's single-take short film, also entitled "Dulce Et Decorum Est," adapts Owen's classic poem to the circumstances of the modern day, and a situation of grief and torment all too many soldiers, families, and friends are once again familiar with.

Veterans Day was yesterday, but we hope you'll find a few minutes today to watch and think of those that have served and continue to serve.

Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2012

Hello fine denizen of Bunnsylvania,

I write this missive with a heavy heart, for I fear that dark forces watch me even now, and I may not last out even the shortest of motor carriage rides through these lovely Carpathian mountains. Please, I implore you, consume the following media.  I have learned that it may be the only way to save yourself.

It will take but minutes to watch this short film, "House of the Darned," assembled from recently discovered video footage of Ryan and Mary Mitchell, back when they had all of their socks...and their lives.


October 09, 2012

The world has been burned to ash, the population has been decimated, a race of super-beings has built mysterious, frightening monuments of unknown purpose, and tribes of violent, fashion-forward priestesses roam the wastes.  All in all, things have gotten a little bit weird – but you've still gotta make a buck, am I right?

That's why our very own Doug Spice directed a spot for "Retribution," the fragrance for diviners of the One True Blade.  It's the first in a series of "commercials from the post-apocalypse," and in case you were concerned, things will probably just get weirder from here.

Re:Active Comics for iPad

August 21, 2012

We love comics. We love them to tiny little bits.

We love them so much that we've had a ton of different ideas about how comics can evolve with interactivity, and rather than just sit around talking about it, we decided to make our own free iPad app.

Re:Active features three immersive stories, each with its own interesting features.

QUALIA is a 360° mystery - the very first of its kind. Pan around the world in 360° to find all the clues.

TILT utilizes gyroscope sensors in order to advance the story. So every time you tilt your iPad, it affects the characters!

And INDELIBLE uses the weather in your area, and a shuffling of pages to give you a new experience.

Watch the promo, or go ahead and download the free app now on your iPad! Take a moment to realize that you're living in the future, and the future is good.
