In another content push for MOCA, KesselsKramer created an animated short in collaboration with artist Gary Baseman and South-African duo Die Antwoord. The Buckingham Warrior is a tale inspired by Gary’s father Ben Baseman who survived the holocaust, fighting the Nazi invasion in Ukraine’s birch tree forest for almost 4 years. The piece generated thousands of media impressions as we launched during the May celebration of WWII’s hero’s, such as Gary’s Father.
KK has teamed up with MOCAtv to help launch the world’s first art-centric Youtube channel. From strategic positioning to web films to social media platforms encouraging users to upload their own art, we’ve helped create a democratic space for MOCA’s artful programming to be viewed and shared by everyone.

In our latest project for Red Stripe, we turned a corner shop into a huge musical extravaganza by transforming everyday items into musical instruments.
Bottles turned into trumpets, pot noodle pots turned into maracas and tins into xylophones. All instruments were brought to life when someone selected a can of Red Stripe from the fridge and we captured all the reactions with hidden cameras.
Red Stripe is the legendary beer from Kingston, Jamaica with a long history in music and DIY culture. It’s this last element – from the streets of Jamaica, through the punk era, to the digital landscape of today – that inspired the launch of “Make with a Red Stripe”, a series of ongoing, collaborative projects. These include a sound system made out of 10,000 Red Stripe cans recycled from the Notting Hill Carnival. Future projects will utilize art, music and film, all celebrating Red Stripe’s makeshift creative culture. More here.
