We like to keep our studio busy. In between our demanding commercial schedules - we like to embark on in-house projects that give us the opportunity to develop and explore new techniques and themes. Flux is one of those projects.
In a dramatic landscape of wide open desert planes, adorned with futuristic structures and beings, A group of hi-spec machines enter into an adrenalin fueled ball game.
The characters were originally designed for a commercial short film idea but we decided to make an entirely new promo consisting of themes that we are passionate about: Sci-fi, design, robots and football. The idea was inspired by popular sci-fi imagery. We wanted to expand on that to create our own interpretation and visual language.
We were influenced by aspects of Japanese culture and their obsession with technology - observed in classic films such as Gundam and Appleseed. We wanted to step away from the generic white robot and design characters that have a sense of personality, so we explored the idea of body adornments, tattoos and graphics which showed a sense of personal ownership and style.
Flux is our first stereoscopic film. Hope you enjoy it.
