Oppo Reno6 Launch Films by Tendril

Creative director Nidia Dias and the Tendril team bust out the full CG toolkit in these two contrasting launch films for the Reno6 Jin and GenZ series phones for Chinese consumer electronics giant Oppo.

From the team at Tendril in Toronto: “For the GenZ series, the inspiration for the base design was the idea of an aurora. This multi-layered phone surface reflects a variety of colors using only one light source.

“Our goal was to capture this reflection in an abstract formation while showcasing the high-end features of each phone.

“For the Jin series, we looked to nature for inspiration. The idea of snowflakes, crystals, and snow forming the phone’s surface was the key concept for our visuals. The environment was kept minimal to maintain the focus on the premium phones.”
