Celebrating 150 years of the first Geneva convention, the ICRC wanted to make a video that would explain in brief the basics of International Humanitarian Law. This video is a combination of various techniques: stop motion animation, hand drawn cell animation & 2d computer graphics.
This video is the final result of a several months long project titled "Euroshorts". The task was to travel around Europe and find a way to present its differences in a short and simple way. The film combines stop motion and time-lapse techniques, both done in studio and on real locations (in 10 european countries). The key idea is to propose an alternative way of travelling by playing a dice game. The rules of the game are simple and can be easily applied to big or small scale travels, and we hope people will be inspired by this film to travel and use the game to explore different cities, countries and continents.
Based on Michael Pollan's talk "Food Rules" given at the RSA, this animation was created in the context of the RSA/Nominet Trust film competition. Using a mixture of stop-motion and compositing, our aim and challenge was to convey the topic in a visually interesting way using a variety of different food products.
For this project, we were invited to create a remix work for UNSPEAK - a series that looks at how language can smuggle persuasion into description. Check out the amazing platform built around the series by the Submarine Channel.
