BUCK Contemplates “Healthy Aging” for Thorne

Taking inspiration from both surrealist and romantic artists, the BUCK crew mix painting, 3D, live-action, and a touch of machine learning into a series of reflective vignettes for wellness brand Thorne.

From the team at BUCK: “Steering away from traditional supplement commercials’ obsession with ‘anti-aging’, we focused instead on an aspirational view of healthy aging that delivers a holistic lifestyle, rather than a cure.

“Playing with scale and surrealism, we created a set of sublime environments for real people to inhabit as we told our story. The painterly textures and serene natural landscapes feel like a natural extension of the visual language that had been explored in our previous work for Thorne.

“The paintings themselves set the tone for each of the scenes, meaning the 3D elements needed to feel integrated and embedded with each landscape. Matching lighting between the painted world and our 3D objects helped to unify each environment.

“As well as modeling the products, we also used 3D to bring depth to landscape elements in scenes with dynamic cameras, adding parallax and a sense of depth where it was needed. We also used some cutting-edge machine learning (EBSynth) to apply our painted style to some complex elements, like clouds and water.”
