Aecom approached Squint/Opera to help with their 2016 Olympics pitch for a key site in Rio de Janeiro. We delivered an aerial site image and a compelling three-minute animation that referenced the Argentinian artist Blu’s fascinating stop-frame animated mural in Buenos Aires.
Alongside the architects we worked swiftly and simultaneously to respond to many iterative changes. The film’s urban illustrations gradually build up on the blank canvas concrete wall. The final cut is a rich tapestry of imagery that reflects the high energy aesthetic and culture so rooted in the culture of the Olympic Games and Brazil.
