“We had to be diligent about prepping and animating the 15 unique avatars in a wide variety of styles. They run the gamut from 8-bit to some that are 3D, to others that are gradient-based.
Erik Jensen, owner/ECD at Run Kick Shout in Chicago: “Production began in mid-December 2021 with live-action shoots with some of the biggest creators in the NFT space and the collectors.
No matter your take on the tidal wave of NFTs washing over civilization as we know it, this spot for Twitter’s new NFT profile pictures – with animation and VFX by Chicago studio Run Kick Shout – is pretty fun.
“Staying true to the style of each profile picture and taking inspiration from each underlying action in the footage proved to be the best path forward for us.”
