Virgin Future Visions
“Fantasising about the future is one of my favourite pastimes,” admits Richard Branson. “And I like to dream big. If your dreams don’t scare you, they are too small.”
A six animation series set in the future.
Using the iconic Virgin red, I wanted to create a figurative and essential design, simple but effective, that would summarise a vast and complex concept into a tiny, but infinite, 15 seconds long animation.
Reading the essays about the Future Visions, I found one common trait: all the futurologists believe (or want to believe?) that, even if the technology will thrive and grow exponentially in our lives, the human will be always, and probably more, centred.
Because of this, I modelled and rigged a simple character, one female and one male, that I could animate and be the hero of each of the six videos.
I’ve also created a basic sound design that would hopefully enhance the whole animation.
