Persil – Monster Stains

Cinema & Online.

Cannes Lion shortlisted for Film & Craft.
DavidReviews 5 Stars.

To create the animation a team of ten artists crafted a colour palette from 28 common household stains, including jam, chocolate and gravy. We then used the colours to paint a single frame of the story on a white shirt before photographing it, washing it clean with Persil, then painting the next frame. This process was repeated 2,576 times.
