Frenetic and fun new PandaPanther clip for Ontisuka Tiger site combines miniatures, CG and cell animation to celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary by re-telling of the Zodiac Race Legend. Jonathan Garin at PP: “We were approached by Amsterdam Worldwide (previously known as Strawberry Frog) to produce a short film, along with an in-store display of an actual one-meter Diorama Sneaker. The actual shoe was used in parts of the film as a backdrop and environment and functions in real life as a miniature race track with moving parts. We were given tons of creative freedom with the characters and environments. Because the film is for an online campaign, we were not restricted by a set time length and thus the film expanded to three minutes in order to give each character some screen time and to hit on all the key moments in the story.
