Congratulations to Hinge on their recent CG stop-motion style Alpenrose’s spot, ‘Keep Portland Small’ on winning multiple Addy’s last week – in particular, a Gold in Animation/VFX/Motion Graphics Elements of Advertising/Animation!
Hinge Digutal and CMD teamed up to create a charming stop-motion style CG animated campaign, Keep Portland Small, for Alpenrose’s new home delivery service. The spot tells the story of the Alpenrose Dairy and its milk deliveries, starting with their beginning in 1916, and the growth of the once-little town of Portland, Oregon. A miniature world builds and grows in front of our eyes, bringing to life the relationships between the delivery people and their communities, as well as the ups and downs of living in a growing city.
