An Animated Journey Through Time With Courvoisier, The Toast of Paris [Video]

An Animated Journey Through Time With Courvoisier, The Toast of Paris [Video] - Davy and Kristin McGuire

We have been incredibly enamored by the body of astounding visual works through talented husband and wife duo Davy and Kristin McGuire. They have the ability to convey imaginative stories, sometimes even extremely romantic, through projection mapping animations onto large paper dioramas. The viewer is able to peer into these worlds with wonder, feeling wrapped up in these given moments as if they might be there themselves.

Inspired by the papercraft aesthetics and projection techniques that they developed for their first commission from Courvoisier, Alchimie de Courvoisier, the cognac brand invited them to create paper film sets for their new campaign. The commercial above has been shown in cinemas, and the paper rendering of the Eiffel Tower and the Parisian town house for the key visual are now on display in Courvoisier‘s own museum in Jarnac, France.

Before we can talk about "The Move" as a film you must first start with all of the incredible elements that are seen throughout. The house, the interior and the set are what clearly make this film a work of art and Mandy Smith is the craft master behind it all. With only the use of paper, glue, foam board and wire, she has delicately crafted a very unique piece of work depicting a little of the heart of Amsterdam.
