AEAF - Opening Titles by Substance Wins 2017 GlobalTrend Awards

Setting up the tools neatly, the video showcases VR sets, GoPros, cameras, pencils, laptops, and even the coffee that fuels us – everything we need to create. But the equipment multiplies, and order gives way to a flood of creative power, a storm and rising tide that we struggle to control. Will we tame the onslaught?

Save Me Animated Music Video Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Save Me is an animated music video by Trizz. This animation receives the Platinum Award in the 2017 Muse Creative Awards.

Company : Trizz

Client : Fernando Viciconte

Project Title : Save Me

Category : Video | Music

Country : Spain

Months of craft, ideas and styling have gone into Trizz’s latest self-initiated project. Located out of Barcelona, Trizz is known for its artful directing, design and animation on commercials.

“Save Me” started off as a 5 seconds test project. The musician’s song gains the attention of Trizz director and co-founder Oriol Puig. Thus, he called him up for a chat which ended up triggering a 4 minute original film to the music.

The Concept

The design concept of mixed media, with an emphasis on photo realistic rendering, was integral to deepening the story mood. The video is scored with heart felt music (soon to be independently released out of Portland).

Visually and musically, this story speaks of the creative process in all of us. Besides, it shows that sometimes during the discovery for implementing an idea, there are waves of inspiration, frustration, anger and surprise. In the end there is a very positive outcome. It scales upon a personal edge that we are also learning something new about ourselves.

 

The Execution

The team starts of with the boy character Rafa. The character  was modelled and animated in 3d to look like an older technique of hand made claymation. Then, they built the miniature house out of wood and mini tiles and lots of glue. After that, they nestled it all within a real forest – little plants from the local garden centre that provided the set for capturing real filmed backgrounds.

Within the completion of the 3d animation, Trizz’s illustrator then drew and animated the 2d “interactive sky” effects. Finally, they renders everything together, composing it into the master film.

2016 Vega Digital Awards | Pause Fest – Erupt Abstract Animation

Pushing the Boundaries of Animation

Pause Fest – Erupt abstract animation by Jumbla wins the Canopus Awards in the 2016 Vega Digital Awards.

Company : Jumbla

Project Title : Pause Fest – Erupt

Category : Online Video | Animation

Country : Australia

Each year, Pause Fest invites studios and artists from around the world to create motion graphic idents to promote the festival. It’s a prestigious component because only ten are selected to participate. Besides, the works often send waves through the global motion community.

In 2015 Jumbla was selected. Thus, it was a chance for them to push boundaries and conceive something entirely ambitious. They wanted to create a piece that was unlike anything they had previously done. They also wanted to delve into new techniques they had yet to apply to projects, such as mixing abstract cell animation with 3D.

The video is on the journey of a liquid substance passing through the body, contaminating all in its path. It illustrates the journey of a substance pulsating through the body, bursting through veins and overpowering organs. The moral: don’t do drugs or your heart will turn into a fish.

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Did you ever give any thought to the fact you never switched banks in your entire life? You are not alone, as the – Creature of Habit can be an example for all of us. The animation, a production by Ambassadors is a Platinum Winner for the Animation Awards category in the 2017 Muse Creative Awards. 

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Company : Ambassadors

Client : ASN Bank

Project Title : Creature of Habit

Category : Video | Animation

Country : Netherlands

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

The Concept

ASN Bank changes up the financial world with their new campaign. They demonstrate in a playful way how money can actually make you happy. The financial world is all too often represented in a cliche image. This gives ASN Bank enough reason for to change it to a more contemporary image. The story of the Creature of Habit is honest and the voice over takes you back to those dreamy bed time stories.

Koert van de Ploeg, Colourist at Ambassadors describes it as – an ordinary looking forest where nothing is what it seems to be. “Together with Vincent Lammers I worked on keeping a certain realism within a fictive world. By thickening the canopy within the forest we emphasise the darkness surrounding the Money Badger, but at the same time adding light streaks and spots to sympathise with the Creature of Habit. Together with the whole team we came to a unique balance between light, dark and colour while retaining a realistic concept”

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

The Idea

The realistic fabric furs, emphasises the tangibility of the characters which accentuates their primary characteristics. “The Creature of Habit wears a woollen sweater, where the Money Badger wear a tie and is made of a striped flannel suit fabric” explains Lammers. This contradiction is also very audible in the music which makes a combination between a playful and a serious tone. “The music needed a severe sound that has a lively translation on screen”, explain Sebastiaan Roestenburg, Founding Partner and Composer at Ambassadors. “So I started looking for sounds that triggers the imagination like the melody of the Celeste piano. It instantly take you to a fable world”.

The film, a masterpiece with an extensive eye for detail, is also very apparent in the animation. Watch Creature of Habit here!
