The powerhouse duo of Meindbender and Techno Image have come together to create this masterpiece. It pairs director Pedro Conti’s style, voice, and flow with Meinbender’s beautiful technical skills in lighting and shading. It’s clear how much care was put into the development of the spot from the overall mood and pacing of the piece in addition to the well designed characters and how they fit in. Overall UFCECE feels fresh and is a well executed, great full-CG spot!
