Academic publisher De Gruyter commissioned Spellbinder to create a series of films that to detail the launch of new theological databases at the Frankfurt book fair and on YouTube.
Producer and Director: Ben Sherriff
After Effects Artist: Yelena Grigorenko
Format: After Effects, Avid Media Composer
De Gruyter supplied a rich feature set of assets for Spellbinder to animate with this beautiful historical product launch and promo. We wanted to create a highly artistic and contemporary feeling video that was at once atmospheric and ephemeral – in keeping with the subject matter. 3D textures, layers and typography were used to great effect by motion designer Yelena to create a shorform film that immerses the viewer inside this new database. The film is one of 4 commissioned for the client to use at the Frankfurt book fair where the new theological databases were launched.
