Artist: Gary | Style: 2D
We were approached by Engine Group to create a research animatic for Eurostar. The animatic was for a TV spot to promote the benefits of travelling via train, You see more when you don’t fly.
The advert sees an inquisitive ostrich (known for being a flightless speedy runner!) exploring and finding hidden beauty in a Parisian market.
Working with artist Gary we created black and white loose sketches to capture the market environment before the ostrich was brought to life with a simple wash of colour.
Working with our in-house editors we were able to create a timed edit working with the VO and adding some simple animation to further the narrative.
See how the spot compares to our research animatic here.
