The Eagleman Stag is the 2011 BAFTA Award winning, Royal College of Art thesis film of director Mikey Please. It tells the story of Peter, a man whose life has been spent in both fascination and fear of his quickening perception of time with age. As he nears the end of his days, his interest turns to obsession, which leads him to undertake progressively extreme measures to control and counter times increasing pace. Peter also discovers that if you repeat the word "fly" for long enough, it sounds like you are saying "life." This is of no real help to him. His answers lie in the brain of a beatle.

Parabella's Mikey Please and Dan Ojari created this tasteful story for Twinings Tea, taking viewers on a enchanting adventure from the first refreshing sip of the morning to the final, savory drop.
Inspired by the Golden Era of musicals and multi-plane animation techniques (pioneered by Walt Disney in the 1930s), the spot mixes charming Computer Graphics with a pinch of pointillism and a nod to David Hockney, creating this feel-good world of Twinings in motion.
Parabella shot 3D models on layered planes, creating a captivating sense of depth and perspective. Using 100,000 tea tags and 50 different paper folding styles, the pair also animated the female hero frame by frame, all in-camera.

Nine Types of Light is as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio. The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future. The band approached various directors, including Mikey Please, to see out Tunde's creative vision by creating music videos for each song on the album.
