A great collaboration with the Tylenol brand to showcase the laser-cut holes in their pills and fast-dissolving medication. We shot practical elements with Marmalade Films in Germany then enhanced and finished with additional visual effects.
Merging bubbles which alter into cars, trucks or engines - hard to imagine that all this is essentially actuated and driven by this one thick liquid. The elixir of motorized mobilty is oil, and it embodies movement, energy and power. This work is our celebration of the art of engineering - and the strive towards progress and perfection.

To mark World Water Day, on March 22nd Solidarités International and its agency BDDP Unlimited will roll out a campaign to build awareness of the scourge of undrinkable water.
Today, it is estimated that 3.6 million people, including 1.5 million children under the age of 5, die every year of diseases borne by unhealthy water, making it the world’s leading cause of death.
Yet the public isn’t aware of it and political leaders do not demonstrate the drive it takes to end the terrible deaths. The campaign calls on journalists to spread awareness of this scourge and appeal to readers to sign a petition that will be personally handed to the French president during the 6th World Water Forum in March 2012.
To evoke the silent and invisible threat of unhealthy water, BDDP Unlimited opted for a minimalist approach that is both visually appealing and surprising, using water and ink exclusively. The spot shows the power of ink to reveal the invisible.
The spot, created by BDDP Unlimited, produced by Hush and directed by Clément Beauvais, a young director, illustrator, musician and photographer. His multiple talents and mastery of various techniques enabled him to both create the drawings and direct the spot.
The campaign will be seen from mid-March on TV, in cinemas, on the Internet and in print. A dedicated web site, http://www.votregouttedeau.org, will gather signatures for the petition.
i wanted to "evolve" the last version as it was only rendered in SD and also wanted to test 2d.
i want to fix the "rough edges" in 3d, looks just like a moving mask when the camera moves (in SD it was not that obvious).
it's again all done with about 10 particular layers per stroke and very (very very) much tweaking.
