Woven just for the sheer thrill of it and set to a multi-layered soundtrack.

The sleeping organic pod awoke to the gentle touch of liquid running along its skin. The tank pods, receiving an activation signal, swarmed to action surrounding the ship. Preparations began as the pod ascended the beam for launch. NEPTUNE. To be continued… Animated in Maya, rendered in Mental Ray, as part of an on-going series from the studio of Little Fluffy Clouds.

LFC creates Au Petite Mort an underwater fable

 

Animated in a painterly style, reminiscent of watercolor on vellum, Au Petite Mort, tells the story of life at the edge of the world where water meets sky. Attracted by the motion of an iridescently winged dragonfly, a predatory fish leaps from an ever-flowing river and in one sudden moment of carnal lust and abject destruction, vanquishes a life. Rain falls, leaves blow in the chill wind and the sky darkens as the fish enters his kingdom. From above a brightly colored float splashes into the water. Attached, a beautiful but barbed iridescently winged lure.

An award-winning, festival favorite, Au Petite Mort is a combination of computer animation with hand drawn images. The extensive layering of each scene is composited in Eddie and After Effects. Original musical score by PopTuna.

LFC reprises 1930’s rubber-hose style for Coca-Cola’s Delivery Truck

Coke Delivery Truck is the award-winning sequel to Coke Factory. This quirky spot takes the same inspiration from jazz age animations of the 1920’s and 30’s.

Using a mixed media approach it melds traditional 2D cel in combo with 3D animation by using Little Fluffy Clouds’ proprietary code, DIANA, to synchronize the two mediums.

The same animal characters are on the road again, this time with a mission to deliver Coca-Cola to dry and despondent Dusty Town. The delivery truck stalls and loses its color when it runs out of the cola beverage that nourishes the treadmill-running mouse powering the truck.

No problem … a fresh new bottle of ice-cold Coca-Cola appears and a refreshing sip of Coke inspires the mouse to run all the faster as they go on their merry way. Once again when you’re looking for fun there’s Always Coca~Cola.
