Nexus Studio & Mighty Nice Create “The Story of an Idea” Animated Short for Google
The Story of an Idea.
The evolution of an idea from spark to finished product is really a journey and an evolution. That is the concept behind this piece created for Google’s I/O developer conference.
The short has some great design and starts off as a basic hand drawn 2D animation and evolves into a full color CG environment. It’s “cute” and has that pixar style charm to it, with the combination of some indie game art design style. The extra wide aspect ratio adds to the style.
The short was directed by Nexus Studio director Fx Goby, a French director and illustrator. Goby teamed up with Mighty Nice, an Australia based studio to complete the design and animation for the piece.
From the Director Fx Goby: “It felt like all the planets were aligned. We had the full trust and support of Google from the beginning, it was extremely collaborative working with the creative team there and equally the most challenging and smooth running project I’ve had the chance to work on”.
