Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: Child Labour by Minamotion, United States

Child Labour by Minamotion, United States

Company : Minamotion

Client : UNICEF

Project Title : Child Labour

Category : VIDEO | Nonprofit / Religious

Country : United States

Children of Labor is a stop-motion PSA geared towards the children of labor across the globe. In our execution, we experimented with stop-motion animation and cel animation. We believe it would be appropriate to construct our set out of white foam to match the cold, winter mood with added high contrast lighting.

The narrative for this animation involves a young child working in a clothing factory in the middle of a city. The child has been working long hours and is at a bus stop waiting to get home. Eventually, a school bus comes to save the child from the destructive work environment. The bus symbolizes a hopeful future for the child. A future that involves an education.

Adaptation Pictures by Billy Blue College of Design, Australia

Company : Billy Blue College of Design

Project Title : Adaptation Pictures

Category : Online Video | Animation

Country : Australia

To play on the aspect of adaptation, which is the main theme of the production company, I visualised it by having a shape morph into different primitives to progress through a path of obstacles.

As the logo consists of two triangles, one leaned against the other, I baked this into the animation by ending the piece with the shape morphing into a pyramid and merging with another.

2016 Vega Digital Awards Canopus Winner: La Mer Part 2 by Psyop, United States

Vega Awards - Lamer

Company : Psyop

Project Title : La Mer Part 2

Client: Estee Lauder

Category : Online Video | Animation

Country : United States

La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface. Inspired by Dr. Max Huber, we tell a story of one traveler who represents us all.

Lamer Muse Awards

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

Vega Awards - Lamer

Director Marie Hyon on creating for Estee Lauder:

“In the spirit of Albert Einstein, we wanted to create a film that will challenge our imagination. We love the story of Dr. Max Huber and the myth behind his journey to find the cure to heal his burnt skin. We believe the myth is more powerful than the reality. Our film focuses on the poetic legendary tale rather than the reality and its facts. Besides, reality leaves nothing to the imagination. For the first La Mer film, we focused on introducing Dr. Max Huber and telling his story. For the follow up film, we focus mainly on the fascination of exploring the unknown.

Lamer Muse Awards

Curiosity is the key to staying young. And the wonders of nature inspire the curious ones to seek out its secrets, and question what is beyond or beneath the surface. La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface. Inspired by Dr. Max Huber, we will tell a story of one traveler who represents us all.”
