“Check ’em Out” Mock Sneaker Spot by Eva Munnich and Robin Keast
Director/animator/illustrator Eva Münnich in London: “The Flowerladys show off their kicks and 90s dance moves in this fake commercial for a shoe that doesn’t exist (yet).
“I developed the Flowerlady character during the Pictoplasma academy in September 2019 and kept refining her over the past couple of months. She’s a big fan of retro/vintage sneakers and always wanted to direct a shoe commercial. So she just made one up for herself.
“Being put into lockdown with Robin Keast, who happens to be a professional 3D character animator, the idea of making this animated short flourished.
“Using my handmade figurines as maquettes, Robin translated the shape and charm of the characters into 3D models which he then animated in Maya.”
