My friend Germano Heitor Mombach invited me to co-direct and produce a series of spots for TetraPak on their Services offerings at the end of 2017.
Beyond directing, I decided to take the whole illustration work by myself and ended up having a really good time doing it.
For this first video in the series, I chose to go with a 3D solution for the characters, so we could have more freedom on the camera angles and also re-use the bikers’ animations between shots, making the production process much more efficient, just as the job required.
However, I’ve wanted to keep the 3D as a technical solution and not as a visual style, so we used flat shading and stepped animation to blend it in nicely with the 2D world.
