BAFTA Craft nomination for Smith and Foulkes’ ‘The Fearless are Here’

Smith & Foulkes’ ‘The Fearless are Here’, which heralded the arrival of the 2018 Winter Olympics, has been nominated for a 2019 BAFTA Craft Award. 

The bold and exhilarating animated 2D film created in collaboration with Y&R London depicts the thrilling and abstract journey of a luger, skier, curler, snowboarder, ski jumper and ice skater and the psychological and physical obstacles Winter Olympics athletes face in their quest to be the best in the world.

A team of artists at Nexus Studios worked to create the entirely 2D spot which was drawn and animated in a virtual environment using emerging VR cinematography software.
