Silly Robots

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 had an absolute blast with this project and we hope you enjoy it.

We hired Sono Sanctus for the sound & music and they absolutely nailed it.

We had an absolute blast with this project and we hope you enjoy it. You can see the entire Silly Robot gallery here or read all about our process and steps behind the scenes here.
