Directing Duo Twin and StarBeast went viral when they brought to life this endearing, entirely CG character who explored the streets of Tokyo and found his way to the Yahoo homepage.
This one was a passion project. We wanted to tell a story without dialogue, and create a new, loveable character. Seamlessly combining live-action plates with CG animation, we created a short film to pull back the curtain just a little bit…and capture magic on the streets of Tokyo. Here's how we collaborated with Twin to bring this vision to life!
Take a beloved character from a past commercial and expand his story in a short film.
WHY WE LOVED THIS PROJECT
Created a vinyl toy-inspired creature that lives in a vending machine in Tokyo. - We wanted to tell a visual story and have the audience connect with the character purely through images and actions – no dialogue.
