Nina Gantz has come together with LOEWE in a special collaboration for the brand's William De Morgan Christmas Capsule collection. 

A small and skilled team of creative talent came together this summer to create this visual feast. 
Nina had the idea to build everything in fabric including sets and props to reflect the world of Loewe's brand. Gordon Allen and team created a tapestry, trees, hills, thousands of hand stitched leaves and much, much more to build the separate and distinctive environments that the camera continuously tracks through, before it follows the otter back into William de Morgan's decorative masterpiece at Leighton House. 
We shot the Leighton House shots before the studio shoot to provide the passes needed to set up the stop frame elements. By carefully matching lens height and distance, focal length and lighting, we created the elements required for VFX to composite the otter's journey together. No track or dolly was allowed at the location due to it's unique and delicate condition so I contacted Jon Kassel who utilised the Arri Trinity rig to provide the camera moves. Shots were picked up with the Volo motion control rig at Clapham Road Studios operated by the legendary Stuart Galloway. 
Everything else was animated in stop frame by the prodigiously talented Steve Warne, Andy Biddle & Adam M Watts. Well done Sirs!
