These dark wintery days are long and cold, filled with shadowy danger. We need a hero; someone who can shed some light. Step forth Mr. Inuit! Like a well insulated cross between James Bond and Batman – he ski’s! He bobs! He sleds! He even curls pretty darn well!
In this latest offering for BBC’s Winter Olympics coverage, Studios AKA‘s Marc Craste pits a bleak terrain with all it’s inherent treachery against our hero whose sole Herculean feats can win the day. AKA’s trademark sparse geometry plays nicely off co-designer Jon Klassen’s environmental touches with pitch perfect animation to boot. Gold!
