Toyota To the Moon  |  direction, animation, design


All 8-bit characters and elements were initially designed and animated in photoshop, on a very tiny canvas. After the designs and keyframes were stabilished, everything was transfered into After Effects for compositing.


Since live-action footage was out of the equation due to a tight timeline, photographs were used as plates for the shots. In order to get the desired result, a lot of editing was done.
