London/LA-based studio Waste Creative draws inspiration from 1940s propaganda art in this bold animation for Boom Beach’s global in-game big boss event. Wanting to create an announcement that would push the game assets in a different direction, the team seamlessly merged 2D elements with 3D modelled characters and backgrounds, before printing out every frame, ripping the paper for a handmade look, and stop-motion animating the entire thing! As they explained to us, their goal was to create a spot that would be “disruptive for the brand, unexpected for the community, and showed a level of care and craft unlike anything created previously.”
