Juice

j.studio

As 2022 welcomes in the Lunar New Year, animation studio Juice partnered with Japanese cosmetics brand Shiseido to bring to life the magic of the forest and sparkle of the Year of the Tiger.To bring this world to life, Juice’s team spent time building an entire forest from the ground up, researching the movement of lions, panthers, and intricacies of tigers, as well as ensuring they brought a magical sparkle to the celebratory piece. The spot captures the contrast of the dark green forest with the protagonist’s red dress and the bright, unmistakable tiger that comes to life before our eyes.Commercial features Chinese actress Liu Yifei (you know her from Disney’s Mulan).
