Curtin University "Degree" - Kijek/Adamski
Strange Beast have created a great stop frame animation piece for Cutin University, Western Australia.Directed by duo Kijek / Adamski who unveiled their lastest intricate and colourful project.
‘Degree’ uses thousands of paper shapes to create a morphing effect, demonstrating the diversity of the university’s students around the world, the positive impact that attaining a degree from Curtin can have on their life and how “awesome awaits” its graduates.
Advertising agency Marketforce Australia approached production company Strange Beast having seen Kijek / Adamski’s mesmerising music video for Shugo Tokumaru’s track ‘Katachi’ with a view to creating a film in a similar style. “They wanted to create a piece that represents awesomeness,” enthuse the directors. Despite employing a similar animation technique to that used in ‘Katachi’, the directors used different materials to achieve it - notably laser-cut paper shapes instead of plastic ones, each one hand-painted in a lengthy painstaking process. “We wanted to keep the texture of the silhouettes, showing the handmade material as an important human touch in the general technical smartness,” explain the duo.
