Today’s clip is called Formica, which is Italian for ant. That’s what this clip is about: Ants. It is actually a simple camera shot of some ants. As it turns out this was just a tiny test project. The result however is rocking! Sweet and fresh colors, lovely play of depth of field and ants working away like crazy. I tend to be fascinated by how ants work. I don’t know why. I just am.
What makes this piece so special is the massive amount of detail Laurent added to the scene. It’s a mix of funny characters and sketchy clouds, triangles and circles. Add a bit of color to that and some funky animation and you end up with a very entertaining way of showing an ant’s life. I love it!
