Google Zeitgeist

Design / Animation / Compositing

Google’s Zeitgeist is an annual gathering of the world’s thought leaders, explorers, thinkers, scientists, and creators. For the tenth anniversary of Google Zeitgeist, LosFX worked with Scatterlight Studios to create an opening video based on this year’s theme, The Next Giant Leap.

LosFX’s role was to take the live action content filmed by Scatterlight Studios and animate it following the creative direction of the Google client who was producing the show. The effort included three key phases of Pre-Production, Production, and Post Production. The services provided in these three phases included storyboards, production design and development followed by traditional 2D animation using Adobe's Flash software, and lastly developing the visual effects and final composited scenes over live action plates with accompanying soundtrack for use at the event.
