A Lipton tea is all young Kermit needs
What happens when you combine advertising, the Muppets and Lipton tea? Adam & Eve DDB were certainly keen to find out when they briefed us with their playful script for a photo real animatic.
This fun project was not without its artistic challenges. Marcus R mastered his photo real style to accurately recreate the look and personality of the puppet characters, while each of the moving parts, such as arms and heads, had to be drawn separately for realistic animation.
The backgrounds were equally challenging; Neil generated photo real cityscapes of New York City, including skyline and street view, without any people – easier said than done for a busy location! Several versions of the animatic were produced.
