AKQA San Francisco approached Nearly Normal who have developed a distinctive paper style featuring very high attention to detail; They mix 3D models created in Cinema 4D seamlessly with real-life paper models.

The 60″ spot, commissioned for the launch a new Google+ app feature called #ThisPlace includes stop-frame animation and all the 3D models were given imperfections to give them the appearance of being created out of card.

We had a very tight deadline but it was a pleasure working with these incredibly talented folks and I helped model the city and other 'props' to populate said city and the majority of the mountain scene.
