Johnny Kelly of Nexus Productions follows up his award winning student piece procrastination with a piece for Adobe which is just as artful. Using part 2D animation part papercut stop motion he brings an apple seed to live and follows it though it’s natural journey. Yay Recycling!
The whole animation is executed flawlessly, but I especially like the stop motion part inside the body. After all the paper modelling, Johnny and Elin, who worked on the paper modelling “now have fingertips so tough we can pick up hot coals with our bare fingers.”
The spot was produced for Goodby, Silverstein and Partners and will be featured in the CS4 launch campaign.
Here’s two recent projects from the inimitable Studio AKA. Grant Orchards ‘Recycling’ for Disney is a slight cg twist on the lo-fi shoot aesthetic and Steve Small’s ‘Tone’ for Sing Up is a feel good sing along piece.
Both spots exemplify the beauty of simplicity and AKA’s trademark character driven storytelling. Oh and they’re fun! Enjoy!
