Wells Fargo Insights and Innovation Symposium
I co-directed, designed and animated this event opener video for the 2018 Insights and Innovation Symposium for Wells Fargo's in-house ad agency. We paired images of landscapes and memorabilia specific to Sea Island, to a script that poetically emphasized the historical significance and grandeur of the venue. The painterly, storybook treatment was achieved by first filtering the imagery with common neural-network based photo filter apps like Prisma and Painnnt. The results were blended and composited with drawn elements and actual scans of actual watercolor paint on paper, then matted, revealed and recomposited in Adobe After Effects with stock slow-mo, macro footage of ink being absorbed into textured paper.
