Spot for 42 Below's Honey flavor as part of a larger campaign done for the Advanced MoGraph final. Worked as a collaborative with three other motion artists on the final output. We worked towards creating a spot that was distinctive but at the same time stayed within the scope of the actual, existing branding, which is pretty wacky and low brow.
All of the puppets were created from found stock images, that I later broke apart and re-pieced together at the necessary joints using Photoshop and After Effects.
The bees used had drawn elements and a bottle cap serving as a body. The drawn pieces were created in Flash to make them scale better later on in AE and their flying cycles were animated in After Effects.
