Mighty Nice


The brief was to represent a handful of middle aged tortoises who are gathered together for a birthday party. The setting needed to feel instantly recognisable as an Australian backyard. We loved the idea from the start. It called for lovable characters with a bit of maturity and playfulness, and a beautifully crafted set. The art direction appealed to us as well, as it aimed to replicate the iconic clay texture of a stop motion look. While this presented challenges creatively and technically, the final look was well worth the process.
