Capturing the Alebrijes for Mezcal El Silencio

Director Kenneth Kegley and the crew at Current in LA team with fashion label Art Comes First to push the Mexican folk sculptures of fantasy/mythical creatures called Alebrijes into new and darker territory for Mezcal El Silencio.

Kenneth Kegley: “The most difficult challenge we faced was building the Alebrije. We spent months on concept sketches for the creature and its armor.

“With a small team and limited resources, we did our best to model the creature in Zbrush and then add texture, light, fur, and feathers, in C4D.”
