Metamorphosis - Buck's talent in one animation
Prepare to take a visual slap. To mark the release of his new website, Buck has put forward one of their latest productions: Metamorphosis. (via Shoobaka )
This video was produced to promote Good Books , online bookseller donating its profits to Oxfam .
The recipe is simple: take an experienced art director, 6 graphic designer, 16 talented 2D animators, 9 3D artists and 11 compositors (full credits at end of article).
Add to that a good script written by the New Zealand agency String Theory , and a superb sound design of Antfood , and you'll get this little marvel animation, visually representing the effect of the drug:
What you will see is an entirely fictional and completely unendorsed representation. [Though we humbly suggest Hunter S Thompson might have liked it.] We are devoted fans paying homage. No disrespect is intended.
