This video is part of an interactive setup we made on Youtube for our client AST Groupe (a group of different brands of home builders based in France).
In order to boost AST's online notoriety, we decided to create a simple way to connect with their audience : the 4 videos we made do not simply "sell" the brands but rather tends to inform about the most importants 4 topics you have to care when you want to build your own house. Especially when it's the first time.
It was the first time we mixed some 3d with 2d shape layers animation in AE!
We were a relatively small team to do the whole project (3 fulltime & 6 at the end)
The toolkit used here was the classic one : ZB / MAYA / MAX / CC SUITE!

"Noclip" is a fake trailer, for a movie that, for now, is not going to be made, about the incredible power of its characters to defy the physics of the world they live in, almost as if they were cheating a videogame. With this project, I wanted to both experiment with the concept and improve my animation skills. Hope you all enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed working on it!
The project was done entirely in Flash, and edited in Premiere.

Taxis are surely an innovative territory lately. Cabeo strikes the field with an app that lets you find a free cab around, book it, chat with the taxi driver, and -in the near future- pay the ride directly from your smartphone. Users love it and Taxis love it too, as it's respectful with their contracts.
On this one we did something quite unusual for our studio:
1. we made a video without voiceover. Just music.
2. It's completely characters based. Enjoy!
