Chicago Studio Shows Off ‘Sexy’ Editors via Mock Infomercial

Over the past couple of months, Chicago-based VFX/editorial company Hootenanny has been releasing a series of amusing clips that were written and directed by staffer Sean Halvorsen. In this latest installment called “After Dark,” which of course mocks those terrible late-night dating ads but with even worse production value, the Hootenanny editorial staff wants you creatives out there to know that they’re ready to unzip your big files and stay up all night…working. When it comes to faux-infomercials/shameless self-promotion, we say this probably tops Big Fuel’s recruitment vid from earlier this year.
