The two video’s below are from Blink for Peugeot. Directed by Joseph Mann, they are wonderful blend of stop motion animation and CG work. The second video is the making of which sort of shows how they made the video, and includes some tasty facts. Things like it took 48 people more than 6000 man hours to produce this 30 second spot. This has such a great look to it, and a look that wouldn’t have been the same if this had been completely done in the digital space.
Playing off vintage car culture, Saturday morning cartoons, and movies like “The Great Race” Y&R São Paulo has created a nice little 30 second spot for the Peugeot 208. The spot is filled with really nice CGI blended with live action footage and completely goof ball story line. The spot was directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet, with post production work being handled by ETC London who did a stellar job of compositing and color grading on the final spot. How many cartoon character references can you make out?
