Behind the Scenes with PES on Honda “Paper”

Take a peek at four months of intensely detailed work by Oscar-nominated stop-motion star PES and “dozens of animators and illustrators” as they recreate the evolution of Honda products with thousands of hand-rendered drawings on real live paper with pre-vis and VFX/finishing by a52.

The story of Honda’s evolution has inspired exceptional advertising before, most notably in 2013 when W+K commissioned Nexus directors Smith & Foulkes (also Oscar-nominated) to create the multi-award winning “Hands.”
