Global Mechanic is a design studio.
We experiment, we create, we make beautiful things.
Founded in 2000 by Bruce Alcock, Global Mechanic has produced hundreds of hours of award winning content for films, commercials, television series, digital media and art projects. Oscar and Emmy nominated, we're well decorated in festival and ad circuits worldwide.
With a core staff of seasoned creatives and producers, we hub and spoke to handle projects small and large. That makes us nimble, adaptive, and it saves us from getting set in our ways. It's a studio culture of invention and collaboration, where change is expected. Welcome, even.
It shows in our work. We love what we do, for big ad agencies and clients like Leo Burnett, Grey, Ogilvy, BBDO, Coca-Cola, BMW, P&G, Nestle and Bell. For broadcasters like PBS, the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and CBC, the films we produce independently and in co-production with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), our theatre and installation work and, of course, constant experimentation for the fun of it.
