From our good friends at SEED, check this lovely piece.
Watch our man Dan introduce us to renewable gas as he strolls through glorious paper Irish countryside, quaint paper Irish villages and fresh paper Irish pastures… luckily for him and everything in his paper world, it’s not raining.
The very lovely creative genius Hattie Newman built pretty much every prop in this film for Gas Networks Ireland using her signature paper style, for real, before SEED ‘digitalized’ them. They got intimately familiar with all the different types of paper, folds, cuts, tears, bends, creases, wrinkles, crumples and then we replicated all of Hattie’s genius in the world of CGI.
Why on earth did SEED go to such great lengths to build this papercraft world in CG? Simples. Maximum flexibility. Clients love to change things. All the time. So this way they had control of, well, everything, right up to the day of delivery. No putting all the eggs in the basket of a complex-as-feck, 1 shot, 40” stop motion shoot.
