THE GREATEST GIFT-SAINSBURY
Commercial . Character Designer . Passion Pictures
I came into the project at the beginning of 2016 at the early pitching stage. At that time I only created the main character . Passion won the game, so I had the chance to work a lot more on the commercial. Mum, Grandma, son, daughter and dog were designed by the great Meg Park. The other characters by me. It was an honour to work with the director Sam Fell and i felt really lucky to see my characters built in puppets. Stop motion is the best!
We created 3 different shapes of men, women, one "mixed" and one kid, and we used them to create the different characters in order to simplify the stop motion production. Each technics has its own specificity, and it was an enriching experience on this one!
