Briefed by the Stock­holm Re­silience Cen­tre to cre­ate a short film about the cur­rent state of planet Earth, an­i­ma­tion stu­dio Brikk used a Golden Book-style aes­thetic to bring the lat­est sci­en­tific data and re­search to life. “They wanted to cre­ate a play­ful, en­gag­ing film that cre­ates op­ti­mism and hope,” re­calls ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Sofia Bohman.

With the help of il­lus­tra­tor David Sara­cino, the Brikk team went against the flat, vec­tor-cen­tric aes­thetic of­ten seen in videos, in­stead us­ing tra­di­tional draw­ing, paint­ing and tex­tur­ing tech­niques. “The big­gest chal­lenge was to keep the an­i­ma­tion style con­sis­tent, due to the amount of scenes in the film. Sev­eral peo­ple worked on it,” says Bohman. “That makes the process trick­ier – but also a lot more fun.”
