CEA is De-merging

After 4.5 turbo charged years as Cream Electric Art, Cream Studios and Electric Art have decided to go their own ways again.  Electric Art will remain in the Sharpe + Associates roster for North American representation, and will be leveraging its cgi & animation strengths to focus on both stills and motion work for TV & web applications, as well as moving deeper into AR and VR projects the quickly evolving “metaverse” will demand. They will also continue to service clients’ creative retouching needs as they have done for close to 30 years. EA will be bringing back their “Play God” tagline, which is consistent with the capabilities of the tight knit team of multidisciplinary talent they bring to the table. With a focus on craft, high production values and over delivering as an endgame, EA can create anything a client can dream up.  Here’s a little snapshot of work completed during the CEA collaboration.
