(Chicago — 15 May 2018) Focused on the exploding need for brand-content, Wonder Engine is helmed by seasoned directors with years of production expertise, technical know-how and award-winning work.

Launched in 2018 by Chris Morris and Alex Gorelick, the studio offers feature-film-caliber Stop Motion Animation, a vast array of Mixed-Media branding techniques, and multi-axis Motion Control cinematography.



Chris Morris announced, “We’ve made careers out of pushing creative limits with unique, animated content on projects for a multitude of brands, agencies, TV networks and TV shows, like MTV, Hasbro, Sesame Street, and Wonderful Pistachios. From comedy-series to commercials to broadcast campaigns, we have a rich production history. It’s exciting that our new partnership with Jim Deloye of TV Candy Store now brings us front and center to a much wider US market. We have a lot to offer. Our work is on-point, gets results, and is cost-effective. Previous Christmas campaigns have resulted in explosive up-surges in customer traffic for our clients. We really look forward to expanding our American client-base.”

Jim Deloye added, “I am thrilled to have Wonder Engine join with The Candy Store roster because of their range of styles, attitudes, moods and innovative approaches they bring to each project. When it comes to Stop Motion animation, I know these guys can bid competitively and deliver on great creative finished work. When it comes to their character animation in Stop Motion and 2D, they really bring the stories to life.”

With more than 15 years expertise in Stop Motion and 2D Animation, Chris and Alex are known in the industry for their hands-on approach and the ability to effectively align creative strategy with that of their clients. As former senior-creatives at Cuppa Coffee Studios, they have run numerous award- winning productions, supervising teams from 5 -150 personnel for Sesame Street, Nickelodeon, Teletoon, and Disney… as well as work for multiple PSA’s and campaigns for Red Cross, asset-manager Robeco, Planters Peanuts, and the Electrical Safety Authority.

Alex Gorelick states, “Regardless of project-size or budget, we always maximize production values. Often, we’ll do a spot that leaves viewers wondering – how was that accomplished? We thrive on that. The ‘wow-factor’ is important to us. It’s important to our clients. With so much content out there today, we feel the best way to reach an audience is to show them something memorable… exciting. Our Paintshop commercials are a good example of that – audiences are constantly surprised to discover that all of the animation was produced using miniature sets.”
