Uneasy rider takes form

The above takes you through the whole process of the film “The Uneasy Rider”, from the very first storyboard to the previsualization and finally the complete spot.

The Beginning

The agency Saatchi & Saatchi Stockholm wanted to redesign the concept by modernizing the rats, which was further helped by changing their enviroment from the “scrapyard” to a more suburban area.

Above you see the previous stopmotion design of the father rat, next to the updated CG model.

3d modelling

In the design process, we started with the father of the family. Our goal was to make him a bit more humanoid, while still keeping his rat characteristics. He was given longer legs, and we also made some changes to his face to make him more endearing.

The father rat then became the base for the rest of the family.

The Character

To get a feeling for the father we made various facial expression. These one´s were drawn by  the art director, Alexander Koreshkov.

The Clothing

The whole family was styled with normal clothing as a reference, but customized to fit their bodies.

The Props

All props were custom designed to be featured in the different films. We wanted everything to fit together and have timeless look, which is why we went for a slightly retro feeling that suited the rats themselves.

The Environment

The road to find the absolutely perfect suburban enviroment was quite a trip. Andrés went around and shot a lot of reference photos from cities and villages that had the right atmosphere. He then combined the best parts for the modellers to work from.

The brief was that the house  should feel Scandinavian, whitout being country specific.

Above you can see the various stages of this process.

Action!

The Shot

In order to give the actors something to interact with, and a reference as to what areas to point to or avoid, a blue print of the house was placed on the table.
