By now, this is sooooo last week, but we wanted to show-and-tell a project we worked on with Rethink Communications to promote the upcoming Vancouver Design Week. It started with a great concept and a lovely set of graphics designed by the Rethink creative team, which we (with Todd Smith) animated into a 2200 frame video. We then printed those 2200+ frames onto custom bills and filmed them at high speed, 10 at a time, rifling through a currency counter. The end result is a really cool flipbook-style video that we all had a blast putting together.
If you’re like me, and if you’re from Vancouver, you watched Trevor Linden captain the Canucks through some pretty awesome times, including the infamous ’94 playoff run. Needless to say, we were excited, honoured and charmed to work with Clearly Contacts to write, produce and direct this television spot featuring Trevor and his pair of magic (yet inexpensive!) glasses. Thanks to Faction Creative for bringing them to life.
