It’s no secret that everything Buck touches is gold. That is definitely true with their recent work for the popular dating app, Tinder.
Earlier this week we featured Parabella’s outstanding work for the Belgium Lottery. Now, it seems only fitting to share this amazing piece by Buck which represents an adaptation of a similar process. Whereas Parabella’s work was done entirely in-camera through stop-motion animation, Buck’s work for Tinder takes a more hybrid route combining expertly fabricated handmade sets with 3D character animation and pixel perfect lighting, texturing, and compositing.
What makes this piece so charming isn’t just its positivity and cute story but also the amount of craft and sheer talent expressed throughout the film on both the analog and digital sides. There is a little something for everyone here and it looks like this project was a blast to work on!
Anatomy of a shot
