“Permission To Move” Trailer by Niceshit Studio

Using a light touch and multiple animation techniques, Niceshit Studio in Barcelona turns a potentially very dry promo for an online course and book on chronic pain into a hopeful, helpful, and very watchable 90-second film.

Animation director Guido Lambertini at Niceshit: “We had the pleasure to team up with Australian physiotherapist and author Dave Moen and to work along with his team on this mixed-media film for his second book ‘Permission To Move’, which takes a whole new perspective on how to treat chronic pain.

“The main challenge throughout the film was to create a perfect blend in terms of color and compositions while working with so many different styles and techniques. But this challenge was also a big creative boost at the same time.
