Tippett Studio produced this 3D animated commercial with directors Encyclopedia Pictura and Ghost Robot for the evolutionary RPG game SPORE from Electronic Arts. The commercial follows a creature’s evolution from a tiny globular organism into a spaceship-savvy being, with many stages of colorful transformation in between.

Working closely with the Encyclopedia Pictura team, Tippett artists designed CG characters and props to accompany stylized matte painting environments. Tippett supplied the technology and engineers to break the matte paintings into 3D components and subsequently recombine them for successful stereo viewing. Even with the added complexity of delivering separate left- and right-eye perspective shots, our team successfully met the tight eight-week timeline on this fun and challenging project.
