STATE OF THE PLANET ANIMATION
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.”
