Our first studio project, Silly Robots, quickly grew from a bit of fun to become our passion, with over 50 animated looping robot gifs and a collective piece to boot.
We created a set of rules; a strict colour palette, one texture and a 4-hour time limit to complete each robot from start to finish that really honed our creativity and output. Each one was unique but also felt like part of a family.
Each robot started off as a sketch, we then worked directly within After Effects using shape layers and a couple of our favourite plugins to speed up the design and animation process. Whatever we had at the end of 4 hours went up on to social media.
We hired Sono Sanctus for the sound & music and they absolutely nailed it.
