Mill+ created the 2014 AICP (The Association of Independent Commercial Producers) Awards Opening and Category Titles, transforming their concept ’a delicate balance’ into a series of quirky and colorful sequences that celebrate the the art and technique of the American commercial.
The Concept

The concept ‘A delicate balance’ was an installation piece shot over period of 3 days designed to represent how different industry professionals come together to collaborate and create a successful commercial.

The Production

The team chose to physically build the components because there were certain qualities that could only be achieved through live-action shooting that were really important to the piece, like physical textures and subtle natural lighting. A lot of the items had to be rigged so that they could move on set with some additional CG work like dust particles, Tom & Jerry and title animations.
