This is the second commercial I directed for Tempo tissues - this time the range with balsam designed to soothe winter noses.
I’ve always wanted my work to have a sense of realism and comedy that comes from being rooted in observation and real life so as with the first commercial, one of the most important things to me was that all the characters should be stylised but with their own personalities and details so as to make the world of the commercial a believable and relatable place to watch. All the animation was traditionally animated with bleedy Indian ink washes on paper and later composited onto the stop motion footage so that the scenes could almost be mistaken for being actually drawn onto tissues.
