Fact not fiction

 

The influence behind each animal and it’s environment
was the harrowing and alarming facts discovered and
highlighted by the UN’s 2019 report on our environment

Natural layers

 

We wanted to created a moving breathing piece that was embed
with natural textures and atmosphere. We didn’t have time to texture
each model individually so Simon decided to run various passes
through smoke and ink footage plates. This gave each shot a more
‘natural’ aesthetic as well as additionally suggesting, with the mixed
opacities and blending, the idea the creatures were all becoming
a hazy memory.
