Nike "Children's Day - Basketball"

Studio: Brand New School
Role: Cel Animator

" To celebrate Children’s Day in China, Nike and Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai commissioned Brand New School to create these absolutely bonkers animated spots featuring some far out sporting scenarios that promote self confidence among kids. In one, a humanoid alien named Allen takes on a fire-breathing, trash-talking mutant flamingo. The other sees a skateboarding dinosaur match wits with a pair of totally radical apes. Both spots feature a magical bandage. Yes, these need to be seen to be believed. With trippy cel animation and eye-popping colorful characters, this was one of the most fun projects we’ve ever worked on. "
