These people at CIFOR are scientists whose vision and aspirations are on improving the lives of people and in turn our planet. We feel that’s a pretty good reason to support these guys and spread their message.
Given creative freedom, we worked closely with Picture This Productions who provided the script, music track and raw footage. We chose a very traditional hand made style and decided it would be a great idea to keep the entire animation within a book. The animation being set on brown paper gave us a wider range of contrast and depth. Our transitions also reflect the painterly effect when paint is diluted in water. This project was a challenge in seamlessly blending live action, stop motion, digital and hand drawn together. A challenge we fought and conquered.
