If, for one day, you had the power to make your world work better, what would you change? "Shape" is part of a project to get young people thinking about how the world is made around them, and where design fits in. This film and the accompanying website was commissioned by Pivot Dublin and Dublin City Council to promote wider acceptance and use of design as a tool for positive change.
Antfood collaborated with the amazing Johnny Kelly to create an original score to accompany the narrative. Working closely with Johnny and the animators, we created a musical outline in order to punctuate subtle gestures in the animation and break the film into movements. We composed for a small ensemble of strings, winds and brass, and threw in our studio staples of pianos, guitars, analog synths, percussion and foley sound design. We hope that our care and attention to the music and sound design reflects and enhances the overall concept of design improving our day-to-day lives.
