Vorwerk - Mite City

Fast forward through three ages of mites colonizing your couch

Final version
Bright Mites, Big City - this futuristic animation film by Mate Steinforth illustrates the development and destruction of a mite population in only 60 seconds. Enough time for cameos of Hello Kitty bobby pins, bright red lollipops, and - tadah!! - the Vorwerk mite blaster Tiger VT265. And for those who skipped their German classes: "Stadt der Milben" means "Mite City" and "Mehr Saugkraft. Weniger Mitbewohner" reads "More vacuum power. Fewer roommates"!

My role in this project: Design (styleframes, concept art, lookdev) and 3D modeling/animation of environment assets, vehicles and scenes.
