Some beautiful animation for "The Great Writers Series" for Good Books, out of New Zealand agency String Theory by Buck.
Using every tool available, from 2D to cel to programming to compositing, Buck created a psychedelic journey that is a nod to Hunter S. Thompson's legacy. The crazy trip tells the story of why Dr. Gonzo (from Fear and Loathing) decided that he must buy Kakfa's Metamorphosis, from Good Books.
Buck donated its time for the cause -- every time a purchase is made from Good Books, proceeds go to Oxfam-partnered projects. The project took about five months to create.
