Sony Pictures commissioned me to produce some original creative to mark the 40th anniversary of the release of the film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
One of the most memorable scenes in the film features four, small, alien craft speeding along a country road. The finished creative took the form of a GIF, depicting each of these craft, highlighting their individual designs and playful idiosyncrasies.
The GIF is rendered as a flat illustration using each craft’s colourful lights to create the overall impression of each spaceship. The final craft is a single point of red light, running behind the others, adding lightness and humour to the animation.
