British Museum – Hokusai

Hokusai – 3d projection animation

We were delighted to create the promo animation film for one of British Museum’s most anticipated exhibition: ‘Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave.’

To get the attention of the audience in the first frame, the film starts with Hokusai’s most famous artwork, the Great Wave. We then move on to other pieces shown in striking details.

One of our priorities was to respect the style and colour palettes of each artwork, exploring their tradition, beauty and diversity with smooth camera movements and transitions.

The soundtrack is discrete and adds to the experience with a traditional Japanese beat and background sounds.
