The New Zealand edition of Semi-Permanent 2018 launched in Auckland this summer with refreshingly light-hearted titles directed by Marc Smith out of MPC Creative in New York with support from the MPC crew in Bangalore. Marc Smith: “There was a literal meaning that I wanted to create a sequence with levity - a fun and lively character piece and a wild spectrum of enthusiasm and emotion. "It was a chance to follow my own advice: not to take myself too seriously and fall in love with design all over again, specifically character work, which is something I adore.” “I made a curated playlist for the animation team so they would understand the tone I wanted to achieve. I even acted out all the scenes personally, so that they had a clear reference.”   Client: Semi Permanent (Auckland) Director: Simon Velvin Production: MPC Creative Director: Marc Smith Executive Producer: Nick Haynes Producers: Lindsey Krehel & Chris Connolly Bangalore Line Producer: Sanchit Soi Bangalore Production Coordinator: Salil Thapa Storyboards/illustrations: Roger Hom, Tyler Gibb Motion Design: Adam Rozanski CG Lead/VFX Supervisor: Chris Bernier Bangalore CG Supervisor: Mark Robinson Modeling: Jemmy Molero Rigging: Wesley Schneider Animation: Mike Lombardo, Grae Revell, Madeline Jackson, Jacob Fradkin, D.
