What’s not to like about this? To me, anyway, this is another one of those ‘tick-all-the-right-boxes’ kind of spot. Cocoe, the Madrid-based multidisciplinary design studio, was commissioned by Shackleton, to create this spot for the Spanish government, which promotes:
“Fondo de cooperación para agua y saneamiento”- a public institution dealing with water supply and sanitation tasks- is a project that meets one of the “millennium goals”: reduce the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe water and basic sanitation by 2015.’
It supports a humanitarian cause, carries a social message. (tick). Stylistically, it’s adorable, friendly and very accessible. (tick). Technically, it’s well executed, the animation of the characters, especially the little girl and her dog, simply delightful. (tick).
Just like the Story of Kakenya which was posted last week, pieces like this gives me hope, that as animators and designers, we can use our skills for the greater good! Keep ’em coming, I’d say!
