Once upon a time at the pool

Pride Amsterdam

How do animators like ourselves celebrate Pride? When Pride weekend comes around in Amsterdam it's a pretty big deal, with the whole city going crazy with festivities. We wanted to support Pride and join in with the celebrations by doing what we do best.

We combined character rigging and frame by frame animation to make this sexy little short. Furthermore, we took care of everything in-house, from character design, to SFX and music. This glossy little short tells the simple story of a couple at the pool. It’s slick with fluid motion, rich colors, and plenty of sparkle. Plus we got to animate butts.
