ExxonMobil

'CCS Plants'

We partnered once again with BBDO NY, hopping back into the mixed media extravaganza of ExxonMobil. This time around, donning our future-thinking, scientifically hopeful hats.

  

The Goal: Give a sneak peek to the process of Carbon Capture through the eyes of the ever curious scientists. Add in a splash of whimsy, a dash of imaginative, microscopic plant design and voilà! You have yourself an energetic showcase of the ideas that are going into the conversations to change the world. Paired with our exemplary eye for live action, the world of “Plants” dances through the menagerie of GS styles that we love oh so much.

Process

“We wanted to capture the life and energy of plants through every medium. From film to high-end CG, the process wasn’t a simple one, and we relied on all styles to tell it's story.”

The Goal: Give a sneak peek to the process of Carbon Capture through the eyes of the ever curious scientists.
