Honda Hands

65-year history in a single engineer's hands

Directors Smith & Foulkes together with Wieden + Kennedy have launched a new set of animated idents for Honda featuring miniature versions of some of the automotive brand’s best-known inventions.
We were responsible for the assembly of the multiple shots, remove props, track all the objects, shade, light and render everything. All of the FX animation, compositing and grading also happened under one roof at Analog. We shared the modeling with Nexus since it was a massive undertaking with so many products. Nexus also provided us with the amazing character animations and the subtle physical secondary movements of the objects.
