We’ve created a brand new animated short film with Nikopicto to celebrate the Year of the Horse 2014!
We stepped out into the neon-lit streets of Hong Kong to capture rare moments of stillness. With our footage in the can we wanted to take our film one step further, so we designed computer animated horses galloping through the city. By combining 3D animated horses with our live action content we created Hong Kong’s first digital moon-lit horse race.
This short film is a unique dedication to a city loved by millions across the globe at this very special time of year.
Wishing all our friends and colleagues a very healthy and prosperous New Year!
