Announcement from Nexus Productions:
Nexus Productions, along with directors Fx Goby and Mathieu Landour, were delighted to be awarded Best Commercial: 3D at last week’s British Animation Awards for Coca-Cola "Siege."
Fx Goby and Mathieu Landour created a cinematic story of the clash of two cultures. Set in an icy fantasy world, the spot sees an army of fearsome fire warriors poised to descend upon a peaceful community of ice-dwelling creatures. Accompanying the warriors is a huge fire-breathing dragon, which leaves a burning path of destruction in its wake and little doubt as to the outcome for the defenseless villagers. Nexus entirely produced the spot for Wieden+Kennedy Portland. The animation was done in collaboration with the Framestore.
“We are thrilled that this ambitious work has received such an accolade at the British Animation Awards last night. Fx Goby is an incredibly talented director with a fabulous career ahead of him. He happens to also be one of the nicest person we have met in the industry, an important ingredient for longevity in our field!” says Charlotte Bavasso, Co-Founder of Nexus Productions.
