The shots Awards The Americas 2020, an extension of the shots brand and celebrates and rewards truly exceptional creative work, announced its shortlist earlier this year. Let’s get inspired by the shortlist of Best Use of Animation in a Commercial.

  • AT&T - Train
  • Agency: BBDO
  • Production Company: Furlined
  • Director: Dougal Wilson

“Train,” combines elements from Westerns and family films to let viewers know they can get movies and more with AT&T unlimited plans. The film uniquely tells the tale of a Wild West train heist in two distinct parts – mashing together suspenseful live action followed by whimsical stop motion animation to surprise and delight.

The animation director on the project was Paul Harrod, who was the award-winning production designer on Wes Anderson’s Oscar-nominated Isle of Dogs.

  • IKEA Canada - Stuff Monster
  • Agency: Rethink
  • Director: Mark Zibert
  • Production Company: Scouts Honour

IKEA Canada reveals its approach to a more sustainable retail future. In their advertising campaign ‘“Stuff Monster”, IKEA shows the beautiful possibilities of re-using our old furniture.

The monster in the ad is a metaphor for the belongings we accumulate that weigh us down. The ad follows the monster, which is literally made up of old IKEA furniture, as it gives away pieces of itself to be reused. When the monster sees its belongings being given new life it becomes lighter and happier, ultimately revealing the human behind the monster as she sets out the last of her furniture with a ‘free’ sign.

  • 2K - Gift of Mayhem
  • Director: Eddie Alcazar
  • Production Company: Chromista

With a background in game development - and currently in production in a full stop-motion feature - director Eddie Alcazar created a stop-motion holiday diorama for Borderlands 3, a ‘shoot and loot’ game developed by Gearbox Software.

Eddie brought a powerful hybrid of experience to both the creative and highly technical aspects of the piece. “Stop motion is a very old and time-intensive art form, but with this project, we had the opportunity to bring it into an incredibly contemporary context and to an audience who may be less familiar with the medium,” the director says.

  • BMW - Legend
  • Agency: Goodby Silverstein and Partners
  • Director: Dante Ariola
  • Production Company: MJZ/USA

Behold the Legend of Ol’ McLanden. Not every hero has what it takes to battle the bulls of the bank, beat Roy the Destroyer, and outrace the Rogues of Razorback Ridge. Then again, not every hero is sitting behind the wheel of the largest BMW ever created. Journey with McLanden and the epic X7, as they make everyday legendary.

What is the Difference Between 2D and 3D Model Rendering?
What is the Difference Between 2D and 3D Model Rendering?
2D Model Rendering2D model rendering as a process has evolved considerably in modern history. Before the advent of 3D model rendering, the process was undertaken entirely by 2D artists (technical draftsmen or creative designers) whose job it was to project life, despite the limitations of pencil and paper.!What is the difference between 2D rendering and 3D rendering 2 Restricted ViewsPerhaps the most obvious limitation is that every aspect of the 2D model is limited to the 2D plane. Although creative license can be used here, accuracy is key.Although rendering a model in 2D is not directly related to mathematics, it is completely relevant to it. It applies to symmetry and shape. Perspective and line strength play an important role in generating high quality 2D rendered images, for example when designing architectural illustrations. Understanding basic perspective and line values is the difference between an average rendering and a good one. In addition, there is no opportunity to change perspective, as this requires changing the camera field of view, which is only possible when modeling in 3D. Easy Insertion of 2D AssetsHowever, not every 2D model rendering is hand-drawn. Some assets may actually be cropped or repurposed from real images sent by the client or their photographer, such as high-quality photographs of display furniture or accessories superimposed on a display board. Photoshop often plays an important role in such processes. Fewer Considerations when Making AdjustmentsAnother difference between 2D model rendering and 3D model rendering is that with 2D, the artist is able to create the illusion of perfect perspective while maintaining direct control over the image, without having to change any of the complexities associated with 3D rendering. PriceSo why does a two-dimensional service still exist in the industry? It's cost effective. Not every potential client has the budget required to outsource 3D models. As a result, many design firms have made themselves available to meet the demand for simpler renderings at very affordable prices. 3D Model Rendering!What is the difference between 2D rendering and 3D rendering 3When handled correctly, 3D model rendering can provide a near-perfect photograph of any scene, giving a realistic reproduction of the scene. This helps your clients to better understand every nuance of the space and helps them to understand exactly how to place items in it, or you can use 3D modeling software and make quick changes to suit their whims. Limitations of Pre-built 3D LibrariesIt can be slightly challenging if some of the assets in the pre-built 3D library are not easily accessible or difficult to build independently. This means that the designer may end up having to readjust a 3D model that differs from the client's requirements. That said, there is an advantage in this that 2D cannot offer: the ability to build your own library of furniture, environments and accessories that can be easily reused for future projects. Adjustable ViewpointIn addition to providing accurate and wide viewing angles, aesthetically pleasing camera angles and even software for digital flight, it provides a broader overall appearance of the model for 3D images. There is no problem with the accuracy of the angles when positioning the camera in the desired position. They are positioned mathematically. The rendered image is modeled from the computer and you do not need to be concerned with the framing or any detail in the image. The rendering, based on an iteration or sample of the output, will determine the focus of the detail covering each pixel of the image.Another important feature of 3D model rendering is the resulting high quality depth - 3D provides a clear view anywhere within the camera's field of view. Vivid ResultsWhen making full use of 3D rendering software, the lifelike effects are often indistinguishable from real photographs. The renderings are often convincingly realistic and look very satisfying, as the more realistic shadows and natural light are difficult to emulate with 2D illustrations. Is 2D or 3D Model Rendering Suitable for your Client's Project?!What is the difference between 2D rendering and 3D rendering 4Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but these differences can also make it easy for clients to choose the service they want to pursue. As with any project, there are many factors to consider beyond cost.If your client is more of a traditionalist looking for the visual appeal of a more classic illustration, then drawing 2D images may be the most appropriate option.If your client has a penchant for realism, then you may prefer to use a 3D presentation.2D model rendering is best suited to artists who can effectively convey space and depth. But of course, it is not for everyone. Some artists do not have the ability to visually communicate spatial differences, so mastering 3D model rendering can definitely help any professional to meet the needs of their clients and effectively communicate the vision of their project to all stakeholders.As a designer or illustrator, it is important to gain insight into your client's mind by showing as much diversity as possible in your portfolio to help you understand what they find attractive. If your clients respond more positively to 3D images than 2D, you should do your best to adapt to their sensibilities. Even if your skills lie primarily in one or the other, you should always try to improve your toolkit to meet the changing needs of today's customers.
