The crafty, collaborative crew from The Works came to us with juuuuust enough time to pull together a series of animated spots for Aware Super to be shown during the Tokyo Olympics.
In world record time we were tasked to build 3 action packed, dynamic character filled animations, each centred around different sporting events from the Olympics.
After dabbling in 2D and Cel tests we opted to go for a fully 3D process to allow for character consistency and dynamic camera movement that could easily be tweaked on the fly. The 2D tests were still super helpful as a reference and building block for the 3D animation.
