ACME Whistles

Acme Whistles – 150th year milestone animation made to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the country’s leading whistle manufacturer in Birmingham.

In 1870, one man had an idea that shaped a 150-year journey, and continues to this day.

Founded by Joseph Hudson, ACME Whistles started life in Birmingham and quickly became the global leader in world class whistle making. As they mark their milestone 150th year, it’s safe to say that ACME Whistles have more than a few tales to tell, and we were overjoyed when they asked us to help them tell their story in a new, inventive way.

Capturing over a century and a half of heritage in just 90 seconds is no mean feat (we could talk about them all day) but through careful scriptwriting, creative concepts and clever animation we think we’ve done just that.

“Katie and the rest of the team @ 52 Degrees North were exceptional to work with. I couldn’t of been happier with the outcome of the project. Highly recommended.”
