We were really excited when "41?-29!" called us for producing a stop motion video for their client "Binboa Vodka"s product, the "Design Your Own Bottle". They ve briefed us about what they want and the hard-working, brain-melting process has begun!
We ve begun our work by drawing our storyboards to show 41?-29! staff how we will tell our story and how 550 bottles will be used to produce an impressive stop-motion video. After some brainstormings with 41?-29!'s creative team we ve concluded the storyboard process and jumped directly to the animation process.
First we ve finalized the whole animation in a classical way, on papers :) and then we ve created a template for being able to transfer all those drawings on the surface of 550 bottles. With 5 highly talented young art students we ve managed to transfer our drawings on bottles. During this process 41?-29!'s "shooting team" managed the production process and with their valuable assistance we ve came to the shooting process. Endless nights, nervous breakdowns, failures and at the end of the week we finally managed to finish the shooting process :)
2 more days of post-production and the work is done !
The stop motion was made with 550 bottles, which are all hand drawn with permanent markers. We took 5000 photos to complete the animation. The shooting process took over 100 hours. The camera behind this video is the marvellous Canon EOS 5d Mark II. The music used for the animation is Like a Player by Lorenz Rhode.
