EMMI filmek2D animationConcept artDesignCharacter development
In 2019 we made 5 different themed but stilistically same videos for the Ministry of Human Capacities. The idea was to use children’s drawing-like animation. The interesting part of the animation is that the scenes are connected to each other with a technique called abstract animation. These scenes morphe into each other and move the story forward.

Unicum - Presser PortréfilmFilm productionPost productionSound design
We shot a commercial for Zwack Unicum in the summer of 2019. Its main character is Gábor Presser, whose music and personality represent a stable prestige and quality in Hungary just like Unicum itself. The film was a grandiose production with a 2-day shooting in several locations with a huge cast and crew. The pre-production lasted for several months: the search of the archive concert footages, the casting for talents who can act and sing took weeks. The reception of the film was a huge success both by the critics and the audience.

FHB bank hired us to create an image film with the concept “our children’s dream is our dream”. We see a child’s dream coming alive and following that dream we reach a dream-home. It was important to loop the video to be able to connect the end with the beginning. The footage also symbolizes the dream that became real.
To strengthen the concept we decided to shoot the first part of the film and animate the second part only.

A Christmas image film for Szerencsejáték Zrt., the largest gaming service provider in Hungary which celebrates its 25th jubilee in 2015. The concept was to show the gamers’ favorite numbers and things that inspires them to use those exact numbers each week. A country-wide lottery is shown where we see all the people with their favorite numbers. The balls are running through the country and finally arrive at the spot of the lottery draw. The balls are to symbolize the different people behind every number. Post production included crowd simulation, retouching, inserting balls, or changing numbers on balls, etc.

We created a TVC for the Hungarian lifestyle website, life.hu. The film was made with mixed technique: we used both animation and stills. Character design and animation was made by the same artist. The concept was to show a modern, working young woman in situations where all she wants to do is to switch off, hence the boards with different signs in her neck. At the end she finds peace when she visits the website.
