We recently asked Bismuto Studio to create an animated logo and intro and outro animated frames for our videos. The only thing we gave them: creative control - and they came up with something really nice!
Before sending us the storyboard, we had various conversations where they shared references, aesthetics concepts, animation techniques and ideas they would like to incorporate with DCM's vision and brand.
Here you can see a tiny part of the process.
1. They could have done a computer-animated stop motion, but that would be very dull for this creative studio (Bismuto's speciality is mixing animation techniques).
Here’s Daniel placing the supermodel paper to be photographed.
2. Aiming precision, they are measuring every millimetre.
Hopefully Vero didn’t have any back pains after working on this project.
3. Still working hard, capturing frame-by-frame.
(Does anyone have an idea why Daniel is using a helmet?)
4. That’s the teamwork spirit:
5. After hours of work, papercuts, a helmet and back pains (for sure), here’s the stop-motion:
6. For the second part of the intro, you can see graphs and visual representations of data, as well as geometric and abstract shapes:
7. Here's the final part of our animated frames. The modules fold themselves and disappear.
And finally, we'd like to thank Daniel, Vero & Oscar.
Technology has made it much easier to work with partners around the globe and we really appreciate all the creativity and work they dedicated to our project!
Make sure you check them out! Their short film A Story About Motion won several awards in Latin America and explores a mix of animation techniques.
