Lil Dicky Meets “Dave” on FX
Lil Dicky wants you to know the man behind his rapper renown, in other words, the real Dave Burd. Produced by FX, the show launches March 2nd on Hulu with a boost from this snappy promo with design/animation from STATE and VFX from MPC.
STATE ECD Marcel Ziul: “Our design approach was to use bold over-the-top illustrations atop MPC’s plates, giving the piece a really fun vibe.
“We worked on each shot individually; breaking them into little vignettes to better figure out interesting side narratives that fit within the overarching split-personality theme of the piece.
“Leaning heavily upon my designers really paid off — they came up with some WILD designs and animation that FX and Dave Burd really connected with. We’re really stoked on how it came out.”
