350 org

Our very good friend Mush asked us to work some animated magic into a series of beautiful character illustrations and sketches that he had put together for the 350.org Paris march in 2015. Planned to coincide with the the biggest U.N. climate conference of the decade, 350 wanted a short animated video to put on social media to help spread the message of the importance of this movement of the people.

 

Our approach was to create a 3D painted line style that would act as a stage for the illustrations we were provided. We used Metaball objects and noise deformers in Cinema 4D to create the brush strokes, and exported cameras and tracking nulls into After Effects where the rest of the elements were composited.
