If Coca Cola continues to support hand drawn animation like this, I may switch back from Pepsi.
Over a year ago, Duncan Studio was commissioned to do the 2D animation/efx and ink/paint for a Coke commercial by Psyop. It’s finally been finished and released – and its as refreshing as the product its selling.
Animation Director Ken Duncan says, “There was no budget to do traditional “clean-up”….so the drawings are the animator tie downs (with touch up by clean up folks)….”. Take a look:
Directors: Todd Mueller and Kylie Matulick
Animation Director: Ken Duncan
Character Animation: Russ Edmunds, Chris Sauve, Shane Zalvin, KD, Rick Farmiloe
EFX: Phil Vigil
Inbetweens: Juliet Duncan, Dan Tanaka, June Fujimoto, Debbie Forster
Paint: Kathy Baur, Melane Pava, Charlene Kelly
Keeper of the gate: Delia Fance
Psyop directed, did BGs and comped the final.
