Let Me Explain

Meta – Let Me Explain Episodic Series

When Meta wanted to give people an exclusive look behind the scenes and show off their most complex tech, they called us. Together, we created a four-part series that mixed animation and live-action to deliver the feels while also showing off their speeds and feeds.

Doing live-action production in the middle of a pandemic was no easy feat. But by partnering with Only Today, and leaning into our InMoDe™ process, we developed a safe, efficient, and, yes, inclusive workflow.

We’re proud to be one of the first studios to implement Meta’s new illustration guidelines, using a combination of 2D, 3D, and cel techniques.

Our Role
Live-action direction (with Only Today producing the shoots), Illustration, design, 2D, 3D, and cel animation, custom music, and sound design.
