United Airlines #Dragon

Please take note of Kim Blanchette’s exceptional stop motion animation!

This 60 second spot used hinged paper puppets in upright miniature sets, where Kim’s team created this spot over many months of art and toil. This project is a stop motion piece shot that includes digital stills, and was finished with Adobe After Effects for compositing.

It was during this project that the Caliri brothers stitched together two of their previous, proprietary stop motion software apps to create the beginnings of Dragon Stop Motion. It would be another two and a half years before Dragon Stop Motion software would be released to the public. You can thank Tennessee Norton Reid for convincing Jamie and Dyami to release the software. To view the project, click on the image below.
