HERMÈS

by PETER SLUSZKA

The transformative power of an Hermès scarf can be seen in this sweet holiday spot for the luxury goods brand. A horse emerges from his stable one snowy day and happens upon a sleigh full of Hermès gift boxes. He finds one of the boxes contains a most magical scarf which gives him the ability to soar.

The characters and props from the shoot were used to create an installation during the holidays in the Hermès flagship store on Madison Avenue  in New York City.

Peter Sluszka, winner of various awards and accolades, may be the most calm and patient director in the business. With strong roots in stop motion, it’s easy to understand why. It also helps that he's gleaned a thing or two from his time working alongside the legendary Michel Gondry.

Peter is a skilled mixed-media director, but above all, he is a clever designer and a fabrication whiz. It's not uncommon to find him fully immersed in a project and getting his hands dirty with set design, fabrication, or even animation.

Having directed original content  animation, commercial productions, music videos, television series and feature films, Peter's portfolio is brimming with live action, CG and stop-motion feats. He’s manipulated everything from traditional foam latex puppets to meat, origami, snow, yarn and (literally) tons of clay.
