More of a pre-lobbying volley for hydrogen-powered vehicles than a proper automotive spot, this all-CG work for the new Toyota FCV (the world’s first production car to run on a hydrogen fuel cell) was directed by ATYP in Brighton with post and animation handled by London’s current go-to shop, Analog.
ATYP: “The brief called for simplicity, elegance, and sophistication whilst ensuring a palpable sense of a human hand in the visual storytelling. This felt like an incredibly refreshing and inventive way of marketing a new car.
“Our response was to craft a rich visual journey that breathes life into the film’s dialogue in a variety of visual ways, whilst maintaing a seamless flow and coherent aesthetic.
“The line was used as a repeat motif and the visual element that leads us through the film. Beginning with the carbon line representing our current use of archaic fossil fuels, through the crumbling carbon city until it is finally reborn as the blue ‘hydrogen paved highway’; Toyota’s vision for the future of car propulsion.”
Although best known for their striking 3D animated work, London’s ManvsMachine rebrand the film domain of UK broadcaster Channel 4 with an intriguing mix of live action, stop motion (the logo) and digital post production (provided by Analog).
MvsM say they developed “a contemporary take on a classic film strip / projector effect… to give the package a visual signature beyond the logo.
“The idents see the technique applied to cinematic live action compositions, presenting the Film4 logo in various locations. Each location/scene carefully crafted to elicit a variety of different moods.
“Idents begin ambiguously before seamlessly branching off into one of three possible endings, making minimal adjustments to shift the mood dramatically.”
