Emirates NBD Keyframes 4 Project Hero Image Landscape


Together with Marlies van der Wel we developed a 2 minute film for Emirates NBD to celebrate Ramadan. The film reflects on blessings and making a conscious effort to live a wholesome and fulfilling life. Marlies and the team worked day and night to pull off the impossible: develop a 2-minute animation in no less than 25 days. Around 60 shots were mainly illustrated by Yngwie Boley and Freek van Haagen and animated by Rob Wienk and Manuel Ferrari. Even our own Kees Sparnaaij helped out with some elements that were created in 3D. Marlies pulled everything to give the animation that unique and quirky style we love so much. We’re proud to have been part of this production and even more proud to share the end result with you.
