Short promo video developed for a client to showcase our animation skills and fairytale design styling with a modern day twist. Flash Animation. Compositing was handled in After Effects.
Our client’s story demanded high quality design for our lead characters. Our design team focused on seamlessly blending the elaborate dresses and hairstyles of Marie Antoinette’s era with modern day fashion trends. Even though we created beautiful images, they still had to animate! It was quite a challenge designing dress styles, hair and even makeup in turnarounds to work in Flash, and look great from all angles. The finishing touches were added by our amazing Flash team, who infused personality into each scene, and our compositors who gave it that extra gilding.
Much like the elaborate designing of the characters, the client wanted their actors’ stage to be just as ethereal. Our background team researched photos of European forests and countrysides as well as famed painter Eyvind Earle to get that perfect feeling of storybook beauty.
