We are delighted to have been a small part of this beautiful film made by Objekt films. Chris Yacoubian’s life was on an exciting, but exhausting, path until a twist of fate inspired him to make a change. ‘Why This Road: Chris Yacoubian’ is the story of how a world-traveling cameraman became a volunteer crewman, committing his time to saving others with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
Having worked together on the Will Young/WWF music video, Objekt Films asked us to bring to life still images for their documentary about Chris Yacoubian. We used 2.5D parallax animation to breathe life into some photos that helped tell the story. Below are the animations in isolation.
