Dark Noir by Rafael Grampa
Dark Noir, a co-created animated short film by Rafael Grampá, Absolut and Facebook fans worldwide.
The ambitious challenge invited people around the world to unleash their imaginations and transform their ideas into an animated film. During a live interactive three-week period, on Facebook/Absolut, Grampá encouraged consumers to take part and influence the action and storyline as he wrote it. To help him transform his 2D characters and script into 3D, Grampá teamed up with Red Knuckles animation studio.
Brazilian graphic novel artist and author Rafael Grampá. Grampá worked for over 6 months on the project to create ‘Dark Noir’, supported by an ‘international brainstorming’ with people contributing from all around the world. The movie is about the imaginative character Vincent Black, a mysterious guy that can hear voices and see another layer of the reality.
Grampá, Rick Thiele and Mario Ucci and their team of animators then transformed the crowd-sourced suggestions into an animated short film which premiered at MADE Berlin on Friday March 15th 2014.
