Project Description

Ardbeg – A knotty escapade

I was commissioned by Glenmorangie distilleries to create a short animated film to promote the new Ardbeg whisky. Working with Greenroom films, the whole production was split into 3 chapters and took a hectic 7 weeks.

The client wanted a bold silhouette style so I created the characters and look of the film with black and white shimmering lines and we added in the moody skies in post.

The animation was hand-drawn digitally, including all the shimmering white light. Animating the whirlpool was really challenging to say the least!

The film won not only ‘The Best Use of Illustration / Animation Award’ but also the ‘Chairman Award’ in the Scottish Advertising Awards 2008.
