Rascal was invited to create an interesting and unique video to promote the already well known Greek mastic drink "SKINOS".
The Concept

They found themselves tripping around with the values and images that the Mediterranean spirit represents. A great risk, but also an exciting challenge, was the filtering of inspiration coming from Greece. They had to keep a serious balance among the Greek soul and the SKINOS worldwide profile, but maintaining its origin. So, let the Mediterranean spirit take over your senses and... TASTE. IMAGINE. CREATE!!

The Production

The team wanted to present a different approach to TV commercials by using a deep concept and unique ideas all under the 3D motion design umbrella.

From the start, the team wanted to bring a real element into their story so they decided to shoot the fish in reality and boost it a lot after. They added some surrealism into it like the yellow parts of his body.
The team used 3ds Max as their main 3d platform in order to create the CG environments and animations but in a strong combination with Houdini software so they could bring some nice FX simulations like clouds, sea, water, cloth etc.
For the swimmer animation and rigging, they used Maya software. Their main compositing suite was After Effects.

The team decide to add some elegant motion design touches in order to put a graphic touch but also place 2d animations along with the 3d scenes.

The team succeeded in creating a commercial that was inspired by Greece, yet not to loud with the traditions and culture.
