Kyra Buschor and Constantin Paeplow: "First Christmas" Spot

This warm and very fuzzy all-CG effort from directing duo Kyra & Constantin at Passion Animation Studios was produced through agency Jung von Matt/DONAU for Austrian financial services provider Erste Group Bank AG. Kyra Buschor and Constantin Paeplow joined forces while studying Animation at the world-renowned Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Germany, and have since mastered the art of creating imaginative animal (or animal-like) characters that have come to distinguish the pair’s very distinct style. Their personal project Rollin’ Wild, in which they devised a series of bloated wild animals in their natural environments, became a YouTube sensation, and they have gone on to create commercial spots that draw people in with equally endearing characters for Genius, Anchor and Motorola.
