Music video for the song Tunnel by TWR72. Inspired by their minimalistic sound with a huge climax, we made a 21st century version of the liquid light shows from the late 60's, which they will also use in their live performance. All visuals in this video were made by hand.

The untapped beauty and richness, the fascinating culture and nature – outsiders are usually overwhelmed and left with much intrigue when they visit the black continent for the first time. This commercial abducts the viewer into this magnificent and majestic world – and invites everyone to join the safari and indulge with all sensuality in the flavors and pleasures of Africa.

In motion graphics you can always spot trends (call it copycats or being inspired, whatever you prefer). After the popular geometric & circle animations, since a year there are more and more animations turning up in which organic shapes transform in a liquid way.
Shapes are smeared and splash back together, often at the moment of a peak in the action, moving in slight slow motion, with twists and bends. It kind of resembles the flowerpower / psychedelic shapes known from the 60’s.
One of the earlier motion graphics with this appearance, were some of the videos of the advertising agencies CRCR and Buck (2 years ago). I also found one example that appeared already in 2008 in the video Orgesticulanismus by Mathieu Labaye. And you can find this same kind of movement in earlier anime movies.
Abstract drops and smears, swirling typography, and even characters whose limbs are being stretched and swirled – yes, maybe it’s a countermovement against the downward trend of geometrical squares, triangles and circle-transitions.
The non-profit, 84000, has an enormous task ahead of them: tackling the 95% of Buddhist texts that have never been translated into modern languages. We helped them create a video that would spread their message and gain support, voiced by the ever-exuberant Russell Brand.
