Ray Gumbley Photography Video & Animation
Ray Gumbley, is a great friend of ours. His Photography is beautiful, surreal and intriguing. So when he asked us to create a video to show off his work we were delighted. He asked for something nu-vintage feeling to reflect the fine art slant he has to his work and to use animation to provide some insight into the thought process behind some of the photos. He works closely with his clients to allow expression and freedom in his shoots and focusses on capturing that freedom in the lens, so we really wanted to make sure that came across in the video.
We liked the idea of a puppet show crossed with a Lotte Reiniger silhouette style animation to give that old/new feel and then as the process developed we liked the look of paper cut out puppetry, so it developed the idea further by incorporating that into the animation scenes aswell. This is what we created for him.
