“keep growing together. 150 years create future.”
with this slogan in mind I was asked to create an animation that will be used for a TV-show as an intro for the 150 year anniversary of the St. Gallen Kantonalbank.
color-pencils were used by the Swiss Kantonalbank already in the run-up to their anniversary-contest and should be part of the animation to show the 40 locations (4 major) geographically in the eastern part of Switzerland of the winner’s and where their projects will be realized.

this guideline lead me to this solution:


but for the tv-station the duration was to long and therefore this is the version that will/was be broadcasted:


from the technical point of view I used “Digital Elevation Maps” to create a geographically correct 3D landscape model and used satellite images to texture it. with this base it was an easy task to animate the pencils over it.
