DARK ENERGY HAVE A BROKEN ANTLER.
15 May 2022

Self-styled 'purveyors of design and motion' Broken Antler have joined the ranks at Dark Energy. Otherwise known as Ben and Elaine Adam-Harris, the duo specialise in mixed-media projects for a diverse array of clients. Whether it's TVCs, music videos, or opening titles, Broken Antler’s craftsmanship shines through.

Though the two are serious about their work, they also encourage creative play and exploration as much as possible. This means they can dip into animation, photography, motion graphics, etc. with childlike abandon and find unexpected solutions in the process. No wonder their motto is "Break away from the herd!"


This open-minded approach excites Dark Energy founder and managing director Matt Brown, who says: "We're really excited to have Broken Antler join Dark Energy. Their impressive body of work, experience, and craft will be a great addition for our clients."

Among the duo's satisfied customers is Badly Drawn Boy, who received an eclectic promo for his single 'Is This A Dream?' Broken Antler's visuals match the song's scattershot whimsy ("I need electronic eyeballs/Just to see past the truth") with gusto, and bodes well for their time at Dark Energy.
