ARTISTS, ANIMATORS AND MUSICIANS ESCAPE THEIR IMAGINATIONS AT WWW.LOSFUGITIVOS.COM
What if the imaginations of illustrators, animators and musicians got loose?
The Drawing Book Studios has teamed up with Red Box Digital and Song Zu to entertain that hypothetical question and extol the virtues of character design, animation and sound engineering.
Matt Jackson describes the objective of the campaign as, “getting suppliers to work together on something that is completely our own. Rarely do the names of artists, animators and musicians appear alongside their work in advertising, so we created something in which that became the only mandatory.”
The storyline is a simple one. Five characters have escaped the imaginations of their creators. As is common with escapees they have fled to Mexico. Without any guidelines or mandatories to restrain them things soon slip into bloody mayhem. The site shows footage of the mayhem. After watching the characters tear each other apart visitors to the site are encouraged to vote for their favourite fugitivo as the winning character will then reappear and face two new artist's characters in subsequent episodes.
Red Box digital did a tremendous job on the site’s functionality and design, making the delivery of animation, soundtrack and voting function slick and quick.
Song Zu also lived up to their exceptional reputation, producing a killer soundtrack that actually animates the animated. All three parties agree that they couldn’t have done it alone.
