Directors FlavioMac, Alexandre Romano and a group of artists worked hard to accomplish the stop motion style and a realistic photographic look for this CG 3D animation.
The Concept

The TV show tells a story of lovers that die and return to life to be together again. With the idea of life, love and death, the rose was a perfect object to be the main "character" in the animation. A rose can be used to celebrate love or as a farewell over the coffin of a beloved one. The team also used the concept of the cycle of life and death for this TV show opening.

The Production

Using photogrammetry software and a custom made Lego "scanner", FlavioMac created dry leafs, stones and wood sticks for the animation. Lots of procedural shaders were used and almost all materials have displacement maps to get the organic look of this all CG animation. Animating the characters at 12 FPS and the shaky camera at 24 FPS they created the stop-motion feeling.

Custom made Lego "scanner" used to automate the process of photographing real leafs, sticks and stones to be converted in to 3D models.

The team used a combination of After Effects, 3d Studio Max, Corona renderer and Photoshop for this animation.
