Get your geek on. Fates got to be involved with the 2015 Middle East Film & Comic Con, with our Director Jesse Norton giving a keynote at the Business Development conference at the Dubai World Trade Center. When it came time to advertise the 2016 event our new friends Ben, Arafaat, and all the crew at ExtraCake wanted the Fates animation team to craft something that captured the spirit of the Con. We went with a fun, simplistic style to match the design of the new MEFCC mascot (we’ve been calling him “Tubey”) and capture the vibrancy of Dubai and it’s vast makeup of cultures and people. This animated commercial is a great example of how quickly we can rush a production of a 2d, 2.5D, & 3d animation promo these days. We did everything for this one in-house including the music.
It’s going to be a super fun year with guests Nick Frost, Stan Lee, Christopher Lloyd, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Summer Glau, and a ton of others. See you there!
