FTC STUDIO.com is a website to showcase the work of JOHN JINKS. My passion in this work is finding the best solutions to get your ideas realized. I love working under tight and restrictive deadlines if needed - or concepting from the ground up to produce something totally unique and new. All the work on this sight was completed by me. I have worn many hats (AD/CD DP, Producer and of course Motion Designer) my main skill set usually is Motion Design. I also have skill in camera work and producing as shown in several pieces. I have hired composers for many of these works too but also have composed music and did the audio mixing on several of the works. The work done by others has been noted in individual pieces. Give me your ideas and concepts and we'll make something together that will move you and me too. Whatever it is - we'll make it happen. Fine Tooth Comb (FTC) Studio was founded in 2003 by John Jinks.
Merck was launching a new app for mobile devices for their clients. We were called in to give a short introduction to show the apps usabilty and capabilities. It's presented here in a montage edit.
Aztak needed a new piece for a drug on hypertension.
We animated a client concept of a shark in a fishbowl denoting the control of hyperactivity that tied in to a branded campaign already in place.
Cracked Latin needed a whacked (cracked) viewpoint for their song Your Miami. After a few meetings we decided to dress up the cracked duo in all sorts of persona. The song is about experiencing all Miami has to offer and more.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
HANS VAN DE BOVENKAMP
This 30 min. documentary is about sculptor Hans Van de Bovenkamp. The piece reveals his process, history, and principles in the creation of his works.
It's really been and honor and pleasure to work with Hans and I'm pleased to call him a good friend.
RITUXAN/ RETHINK RA
This piece was done for Genentech for their drug RITUXAN. The client had developed a concept about "Rethinking" Rhumatoid Arthritis. They supported this theme by choosing a person who was a great (re)thinker and innovator. In this case they chose Les Paul the great musician and inventor. Les Paul invented the solid body electric guitar among other electronics in the music industry transforming it forever. His contributions have shaped music in a profound way.
This association is how the client presented the innovation of their drug RITUXAN. A truly remarkable drug for arthritis and joint pain. The original piece was shown in a "theater" (shaped like a B cell no less) in conventions across the world. We shot Les Paul in NYC and Dr. Meese in Seattle then got to work animating and developing these concepts to a finished piece.

Merck Global Display
We've done lots of work for Merck and here is a sample Montage of some of the work done for their Global Display Division. This work was shown on screens for Merck's booth at conventions in the US and worldwide.
The Doors of Dr MullrayMerck Vaccine Support
Merck came to us to do 3 Film Noir pieces in a series for their vaccine reps. They chose 3 different storylines involving sales reps and a "vass" healthcare pro. This piece is "The doors of Dr. Mullray".
FTC produced all to create the Noir look with greenscreened actors and Computer Generated environments. We had a ball working with the actors and sourcing all the costumes and props. The music was scored by the excellent London composer Jon Wygens.
The Jemstones had a driving piece of music that needed a visually rich video about love and loves lost over a lifetime.
We suggested the surreal/symbolic view shown here incorporating elements from latin milagros to lotteria cards. Enjoy!
Diachi Sankyo needed a launch video for a new software program for reps and health care professionals within their company. After previewing the process needed to show how the software was executed, we got to work and delivered this motion graphics piece.
We again are gracious to work with the talented composer Jon Wygens who created the excellent music track on this one.
The artist Mark Wiener was working on a series of paintings titled "Gesture Pools". He requested a video to be previewing at the showing of his works in 2 concurrent Madison Ave. gallery shows. The animated text towards the end is Mark's own artist statement.
He was super pleased with the results. So are we.
Vista Equity Partners
FTC has worked on many internal presentation pieces for Vista Equity Partners. We partnered with A Cappella Partners and the reknowned economist Eugene Flood, Phd
Here is a edit of some of the work produced.
Merck Vaccine Support
The Fourth Vaccine
Merck came to us to do 3 Film Noir pieces in a series with 3 different storylines for their vaccine reps. All the actors were shot in front of a green screen then CG elements added for the environments.
Music by Jon Wygens
Takeda needed a piece to accompany branded materials for their launch of a drug to help with hypertension. The concept tied in the aspect of global warming and striving to do a "liitle" to change it - can do a lot. This was shown worldwide in a custom made Takeda convention booth as well as internal use. We also created 3 other technical pieces for the screens and the kiosk used in the booth environment.
The pieces were very well recieved. The agency won a global award in the pharma industry.
Merck Vaccines Support
They Lunched and They Learned
Merck Came to us to do 3 Film Noir pieces in series with 3 different storylines for their vaccine reps and healthcare professionals. All the actors were shot in front of a green screen then CG elements added for the environments.

Santa's Sled is a Drag
FTC HOLIDAY PROMO
This season we did a holiday piece based on a Santa's sled race through the mind of a young child. We thought if Santa's jet powered sled was paired against a hot rod - who would win? At the end of course there needs to be the thrill of a crash so smashing into stacked presents and flying through a wreath seemed appropriate. Enjoy and hopefully feel the thrill and fun of a child's mind again.

Merck 3d Models
Merck Global Display
We've done lots of work for Merck and here is a sample of 3 CG 3d models done for their Global Display Division. These models were created from actual real life clock,digital recorders,etc. promotional items that were given away at their display booths. The motion graphics work at their convention booths included these models to support the promotional giveaways as seen elsewhere on the site.
