Deutsche Fernsehlotterie Paper World

Follow the paper plane into Sehsucht's latest origami-style world of helping hands and improved communities.

We produced the 30 sec. TVC "Paper" full CG for Deutsche Fernsehlotterie, a charitable lottery, and their agency Zum Goldenen Hirschen, all three companies from Hamburg/Germany. Director Hans-Christoph Schultheiss and his team walked the tightrope between reduction and complexity, aiming to create the characters as human as possible but with a realistically foldable look that carries the complex textures of paper.
