Director Yves Geleyn via Gotham Inc and Leo Burnett NYC help spread the holiday spirit with a short film called Snow Angels. In Eastern Turkey, giving is everything. Snow Angels, running a little over 2 minutes, is a story about the importance of giving selflessly and the power of believing in magical things. For both children and adults, the holiday season is a perfect time to renew ones belief in magic and wonder. Snow Angels appeared on the main page of Chobani’ website as their holiday greeting and serves as a gentle reminder to give selflessly this holiday season.
Yves creates this tender story with painted illustrations and character designs that utilizes traditional children book illustration, animation, CG visual effects and lighting. And staying true to the story, Yves made sure no snowflakes touched, even during the CG snow production.
