Duck Sauce 'Quack Is Back' by Mister Whitmore

Duck Sauce 'Quack Is Back' by Mister Whitmore

David Knight - 28th Apr 2014

With the Duck Sauce album Quack Is Back on the way, Mister Whitmore got the job of creating five promos for the album, focussing on diffrent characters – a street basketball player, weightlifter, guitar hero, meter maid and Jacko impersonator - all with a defining duck-like characteristic, courtesy of great work by SFX makeup artist John Goodwin.

John has now sent Mister Whitmore his bill.
 

MISTER WHITMORE:

"When the project came in it was extremely open ended. All that mattered was that we use duck character's to announce that Quack Is Back. The cherry on top to it all was how much time we had. There wasn't some unrealistic deadline viciously thrusting us into production, instead, we actually had time to sit with the concept. So we spent a lot of time writing with DS's team, going back and forth on characters, their stories, and which tracks fit which duck, and by the end of it all, we chose to produce the concepts that made us giggle like a group of school girls.

"When it came to production, we went out with a concise little crew that was hell bent on shooting some ducks guerilla style. It was really fun seeing people just stop and stare in amazement as we were filming, at one point a toddler freaked out and starting crying at the sight of a duck billed man playing basketball. After editing the films, my favourite thing is asking people which of the series is their favourite. I think you could probably develop some sort of psychological profile around each of the videos and what it says about you depending on which you like best. My favourite is the weightlifter duck, so feel free to analyse what that says about me."
