We had the pleasure to once again work with Minecraft and the awesome team at Mojang.
This time we were asked to produce a film with the purpose of presenting a major update in Minecraft; The Aquatic Update.
The film is a deliberate flirtation with Wes Andersons A Life Aquatic and tells a simple but charming story about the characters dwelling in the new update.
To be able to stay somewhat true to the aesthetics of Wes Anderson we made the choice to work with a live action base edit and combine that with camera tracked 3D creatures and elements.
The result ended up being a low-key adventure with aquatic environments from all over the world, dolphins, turtles shipwrecks, icebergs, underwater zombies and lots of other creatures of the sea.
