Studio River’s “Manifesto” Makes Fun of Everything, Including Themselves
Instead of cutting together the usual demo reel, French motion house Studio River introduced themselves as sponsors of the most recent Motion Plus Design event in Paris with this refreshing mock manifesto.
Keyvan Nourian, co-founder at Studio River: “Motion Plus Design asked us to produce a presentation film of our studio. But rather than deliver another showreel we decided to create a video where we could play with some funny storytelling through our different baselines.
“We used the showreel codes to create the same type of dynamic except that each shot was created for the film with different artistic directions. I wanted to create a demo tape with a somewhat atypical shape.
“We produced it in just under three months taking advantage of the COVID containment. We had a very short deadline and some customer orders to honor too. It was a small race against time.”
