Tripping with Clubcamping and Their New Short Film “Tartarus”
Buenos Aires studio Clubcamping, who dropped this animated sparkler for Porsche back in September, just released an in-house piece of psychotropic fun that will help relieve your Christmas ad overload for the next few minutes.
Clubcamping creative director Mariano Fernández Russo: “This short film is a result of a different approach to our creative process. A psychedelic creative trip we embarked on during several months of lockdown with the multitalented visual artist Juan Barabani.
“There were so many things we wanted to try – both technical and creative – we just couldn’t focus. It felt overwhelming at times. Then Juan jumped on board bringing his fresh vision, his deep love of art, and a collaborative spirit.
“Juan pitched marvelous ideas to us, which in turn made us rethink and pitch new ideas to him (and to ourselves). For several days, this was the process.
“And then the animatic came naturally, too: a reflexive, tranquil pace that let one dwell on the excruciating amount of little details we would be animating. Also, that rhythm felt cosmic and solemn.
“The base texture was animated using After Effects, then imported into Animate where frame-by-frame adjustments were made. Those adjustments were then reimported into After Effects.”
