In adapting Izak’s elegant illustrations for this animated piece, director Marcus Armitage was able to bring to life glamorous characters as they meet through secret doorways hidden in a festive urban landscape, a journey leading to a magical Estee Lauder wonderland. The elegant and visually stunning performances were animated and artworked by hand in TVPaint, featuring painted background scenes created by Izak in watercolours and ink. The result is an eye-catching & celebratory piece, produced by Studio AKA.

“Izak’s designs were loose, instinctive and very elegant. It was a big challenge to try and capture that feeling, while also making it move. I had a great team of animators and artworkers who brought these designs to life, and it was incredibly exciting to watch as each layer of detail and colour was added. I loved working with Izak’s elegant designs, there was so much fun to be had, animating the flowing hair and dresses. As we put the characters into the beautiful watercolour backgrounds suddenly everything clicked into place.”
