The first video that El Gato Productions creates in Spain is an image video for an eco-friendly cooperative that promotes e-cars sharing.
The cooperative is called SOM MOBILITAT and operates from Mataró, a town close to Barcelona. There I had the chance to meet Vanessa Linares, the graphic designer of the company, and the pleasure to animate her cute little characters called Guspirus.
We decided to film the urban environment in Barcelona and to make them live in the city! And of course, to let them use green energy, e-bikes and e-cars to roam around. As they are Spirits of Nature, plants and flowers and little animals are coming back to the city with them!
The vector animations were all done in After Effects.
Vanessa passed me the characters in Illustrator, so I divided them into layers in order to animate them.
Here are some walkcycles of the Guspirus:
A Granny with her grandson
A little kid hanging on a baloon
Walking the dog
I really enjoyed bringing these cool characters to life!
