Director: Chris Staves
PostPanic proposed a whole new look and feel for the 2012 series films featuring the new range of Philips televisions. PostPanic director Chris Staves came up with the idea of 'a gallery of amazement' with Philips televisions used to create a series of artist-led installations, each one highlighting a feature present in that particular television model. Quite daring and abstract in places, the films are part of a larger campaign to create a new, fresher identity for Philips TV.
After winning the pitch (together with FunJob) for the creation of the new idents for NICK, we jumped into an ambitious project by proposing an idea based on a mix of techniques to obtain a different result. That’s how we set out to create each ident by using the frame-by-frame animation technique first and then modelling each of them in 3D. This gave the idents a handmade appearance and allowed us to win absolute freedom in the transitions. All of this was based on an extremely minimalistic art direction and a set of great characters designed by FunJob, and received the finishing touch with the spectacular audio created by Norman Bambi.

Concept, Design, Animation:
In "REPLACE" we are confronted with a Nature seemingly familiar to us, but only at first glance. Quickly it becomes clear that Nature’s laws have been suspended and strange creatures are inhabiting the Planet. All plants and animals give the impression of pursuing a certain target. Halfway through the film a geometrical shape appears, floating in a clearing like a separate parallel universe.
Inside a human-like being is evolving whose components condense into a star system. We are flying through this galaxy of stars and at the end of this voyage, we perceive the familiar image of our home planet.
As in the film’s opening, a similarly deceptive image of normality is shown - a strange planet appears in view of the Earth.
Often enough we only see what we expect to see. What would happen if things began to change gradually, over time…or unexpected circumstances led to their replacement?
