Elastic/A52 presents the opening titles for the 10th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival. If not for its wonderful design and execution alone, this referential journey should have a special place for those of you who grew up geeking out on animated logo sequences, even before the titles.
As an homage, Elastic cleverly deconstructs some of the most classic, animated studio preludes and flips them on their heads. This thing is firing on ALL cylinders.
As a follow up to their previous spot for Israeli telecom company Pelephone, Gravity teamed up with director Eli Sverdlov on another spot full of charm and cheer for agency Adler Chomski & Warshavsky/Grey Israel.
Like “Other World,” “Canons” is reminiscent of director Rupert Sanders‘ penchant for magical realism, but with a decidedly campy twist. The saturated visuals and grin-worthy denouement suggest an alternate reality of storybook proportions, the kind of place that could just as easily fit in a snow globe as it could in your imagination.
I like that level of approachability for something so surreal. It’s a difficult thing to master in 60 seconds of airtime.
