Berklee on line videos
We were invited to work alongside Berklee’s team for the launch of their new animated series campaign. We illustrated, animated, and sound scored for Berklee’s new online videos. Inspired by the institution’s heritage, our team passionately worked non-stop to develop the first animation videos of their online series campaign. The visual aesthetics of the spots are influenced by the early visual music artists. The illustrations are composed by complexes of abstract shapes and forms floating into the brand's colours. The animation and the sound design translated these abstract images into meaningful storytelling moving image. The animated spots represent visually and communicate the educational purposes and the structure of the institutes degrees.
All-in for our new Casino campaign from Pamestoixima.gr. Like another Alice in Wonderland, our protagonist hits the accelerator and gets lost in a new magical world, made exclusively for him.

HOPA awareness video
HOPA (essentially an acronym) is an animation video produced for the Greek Neurological Society. The video is designed to raise awareness on how to effectively recognise stroke symptoms. The the word (H)OPA is commonly in use amongst Greeks but is also familiar to other nationalities partly due to the popular Sixties movie Zorba the Greek where during the film’s finale Anthony Quinn is heard to yell a celebratory Opa! during the dance sequence. With this cheesy stereotype in mind we’ve created the exuberant character of a shepherd. We capture the moment where the he sweet-talks a sheep on the riverbank and encourages it to jump to the other side. How does the shepherd achieve this? He yells HOPA! After which the sheep, in a single, elegant movement jumps across the flowing river. Having registered the meaning and connotation of the word ΧΟΠA/FAST, Χέρια/Hands, Ομιλία/Speech, Πρόσωπο/Face, Ασθενοφόρο/Ambulance the protagonist illustrates the above stroke symptoms. The project offered us the opportunity to create a humorous, animated story which offers an informative and unique narrative.
