Since 2006, Bigballs have been behind some of the world's most original, ambitious and successful digital and cross-platform entertainment:
YOU, ME AND THE APOCALYPSE (2015)
You, Me and the Apocalypse is a 10 x 60' comedy drama for Sky 1 (UK) and NBC (US), a co-production between Bigballs Media and Working Title TV
Based on the original Bigballs idea 'Apocalypse Slough', the cross-platform series poses the question, just what would you do, if there were only 34 days left to live?
In a global first, the TV series features cameos from some of YouTube's most famous faces, who also create content on their channels tied to the show's key themes, allowing us to expand the world of YMATA across digital platforms, helping to engage massive audiences, before, during and after broadcast.
Line 9 (2013)
Our founding mission was to reconnect the true magic of action sports like surf, skate, BMX and snowboarding to their core principles and ethos', allowing some of the world's best young riders to become more accessible heroes to a generation wary of big brands and sponsors.
More than just a channel, Line9 is a new action sports collective, where the lines blur between the athletes nailing the biggest tricks and riding the gnarliest waves, the filmers who capture their stories and the community of aspiring talent that for the first time have a team they can call their own.
I AM PLAYR (2011)
I Am Playr allowed anyone to fulfil their dream of living the life of a professional footballer. A unique collaboration between film and games creators, the game featured an interactive point-of-view narrative, alongside a deeply immersive game world.
At it's peak, I Am Playr had over 14 million players from around the world, each spending an average of 45 minutes a day inside the game. We also integrated selected brand partners into the story, including Red Bull, Gillette and Alfa Romeo.
Our partnership with Nike won the Gold Lion in the inaugural 'Branded Content and Entertainment' category at the Cannes Lions advertising awards, alongside our third BAFTA nomination.
WHO KILLED SUMMER? (2009)
Who Killed Summer? was a real-time, real-world drama that set at 2009's biggest European festivals.
Sponsored by Vodafone, the 24 episode web-series was shot, edited and uploaded to YouTube, Facebook and Myspace from the WKS? mobile studio (a coach that broke down a lot) in near real-time during a madcap roadtrip across the summer, allowing the audience to interact and share in the adventure. If that wasn't a stupid enough idea, we translated the drama into 6 languages, helping to bring the story alive across Vodafone's key European markets.
The series was BAFTA nominated and the winner of the 'Best Mobile Campaign' at the Global Mobile Marketing Awards.
Kate Modern was the world's first drama made for a social network, and caused a storm around the world when it launched on bebo in 2007, racking up over 67 million views in two seasons.
The first series was directed by Bigballs and was our first experience of creating content that fostered true community spirit.
The series was BAFTA nominated and the winner of a Broadcasting Press Guild award.
