The Coup - A Small Cleptomanicx Adventure

year of making
Captain Clepto wants to smuggle his friends on the flight to Lodato Beach, so he uses their custom made shrinking machine to fit them in cases but of cause they will be found by the airport security and have to run for their lives.
How the film was made
The mixed-media film is a combination of green screen studio production of the actors (and animals) mixed with real life footage (like the car or suitcases) and CGI 3D animated objects and architecture. The film had no budget and was produced more in the style of a film school project with passion and love. Fred and I love to create own worlds, genres like these adventure/comedy and the mix of fiction, animation, 3D and the work with actors.
The idea was to find a story which fit with the brand Cleptomanicx and transport the spirit and creative playfulness of the brand, to go a step further in awareness and to get more attention on the fashion market.
