Vans wanted something special for their 50th anniversary and directors Reza Rasoli and Luc Schurgers came up with this cool concept. Everything was done in camera, no CG or computer animation. Everything was either hand drawn with black marker on a white cyc or paper cut outs that had been animated in Stop Motion.
One side note is that everything was interconnected so there weren’t any hard cuts in it which left zero space for errors. And we shot it parallel on 2 stages but of course it all had to look like one. Tricky stuff!
