The environmental team at News Media Works came to Sixty40 to tell the story of how environmentally focussed Australian newspaper magazine publishers and producers are. It turns out all newspaper paper is sourced from sustainable forest and newspaper ink is re-used on farms as soil conditioner. Who’d have thought it?!
The project was a joy to work on for self confessed ‘Greeny’, Sixty40’s CD Simon Robson and director Fred Venet aka Skull. This was Skull’s directorial debut for Sixty40 and along with his crack animation team, Skull directed and animated a piece with an extremely high level of 2D cel animation. The ideas flow together beautifully and harness the fun retro aesthetic that Skull established in pre-production. Skull is definitely the 2D animation director to watch in 2017.
