Happiness Factory

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / TV & Cinema Crafts / Animation & Motion Graphics / 2007

Then we told the story of how the tiny denizens of the Happiness Factory pull together in order to craft and launch a Coke whenever currency is inserted. The challenge was to deliver on 'happiness' with both character designs and storytelling, while never making it saccharine.
