Studio AKA: National Lottery

Studio AKA’s Marc Craste has created another fantastic animated piece, this time for the National Lottery.


Marc Craste won a BAFTA in 2004 for his short animated film, Jo Jo in the Stars. Check out more of his work on the Studio AKA site.

this is a really nice piece from start to finish.
-character design is great.
-saturation is perfect.

i also enjoy the lotto ball animation at the end.

if i had to pick ONE thing i thought could use some work… i don’t know what i would pick :D


Your right i saw this on TV a few weeks ago and have been trying to find out who done just so i could phone them up and congratulate them. Now i know i think i will!


I liked the touch and subtlety of this piece. Marc definitely has a huge influence in film noir, and how he uses it is just great.

Although I have to say that JoJo in the Stars didn’t reach my expectations.


What? JoJo in the Stars was awesome and original… so is this piece.

I like how this one is a bit of departure from Marc’s previous dark (noir, to use the term above) style. It’s… well… happy.

Geeze, after the rants from spiritform’s post, I’m anxious about using a term like “noir” for fear that the Art History Nazi will strike again. ;-)


Haha…Nah man, I think your safe. You can’t help, but to smile after watching this one.


Interesting and creative, definitely. I honestly loved it. But I wouldn’t say ‘original’. Nothing is truly original in the truest sense of the word, but it was definitely a good piece. I had higher expectations after all the hype and the trailers, that’s all.

haha is it possible that the girl gave a smiley-face to me too?

All the emotion, small-town feel is captured to the very essence of being in high spirits.

It almost has a clay-animation-like models and great cinematography, this spot works very well.

One thing I didn’t like is the lotto-balls rolling in. I thoguht it would have been cool if a giant antique lotto-machine just rolled out the balls into its tray.


The company that runs the UK Lotto are notoriously anal about their balls. So to speak.
