Hornet director Julia Pott has a new film out for Oreo Canada's Olympic effort. And just as you'd expect from Julia's history of award-winning short films, it is absolutely brimming with her playful, illustrative aesthetic and whimsical charm. While Julia's animation takes cues from the original Wonderfilled campaign, she's created a film with a style and spirit all her own.
Having aired during the Canadian broadcast of the Opening Ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics, this latest spot for Oreo is a nice addition to Julia's already impressive library of short films and adverts. Her most recent shorts, The Event and Belly have both screened at Sundance and SXSW, while winning awards from the likes of AFI, Holland Animation, and Chicago and San Francisco International Film Festivals. Before that, her film My First Crush was an internet sensation, racking up over 1.5 million views on YouTube.
