Sea Orchestra

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / TV & Cinema Crafts / Animation / 2009

A United Airlines plane crossing the ocean is serenaded by an orchestra of fantastical animated sea creatures delivering their own version of United’s anthem, 'Rhapsody in Blue'. This sea orchestra introduces United's sumptuous new international first and business classes. The animated characters were a combination of hand-drawn textures and computer animation, married together with photographic elements of water, reefs and skies. The quirky score was performed using instruments ranging from tubas and violins to French horns and the Indonesian gamelan.
