My first 3D Commercial.
The request came in as miniature / stop motion, but after considering timings, concept, transitions and scale of the miniature in comparison to the real products, and considering  the flexibility we have with digital animation, our concept was to work with a team that is specialised in modelling digital miniature worlds. 
Working very closely with Cruiser VFX, who crafted the miniature CGI sets, and also with the constant help of Ru Warner our producer at HUSH London, I managed to learn from scratch what the workflow of a 3D project is about. 
Coming  from a Stop Motion background, it was interesting to see how every detail came alive one render at the time. 
My task on this project, apart of directing, was also to art direct and create all the characters, which were all designed in 2D. It was an amazing process to define the poses, clothes, hair and and most important the diversity around each one.
