Clifton Troll Bridge

Taxi Studio founder Spencer Buck harboured a dark desire to give Bristol’s famous Suspension Bridge its own troll. One Halloween he decided to make it happen.

Frightfully good fun

Working with digital experts Play Nicely, we created a dramatic 3D animation to be projected 300 metres across the Avon Gorge. As the witching hour struck on 31 October, two graffiti artists appeared to be vandalising the bridge when a huge troll burst from the brickwork, clobbered the troublemakers and escaped into the darkness below.

Twitter went mad, thousands of Youtube views accumulated and local news loved the story, and our reputation for Fearless Creativity went up a few notches.
