J Balvin - Azul 
We got approached by director Colin Tilley from A Boy in the Castle and producer Dan Karp to create a story telling animated music video for J Balvin. It was a really exciting opportunity to create something new and fresh. Communicating emotions was the key aspect of the project, so we decided to use combination of motion capture technology with 3D animation and bring characters to life.
