A paper craft inspired video

The Brief

To celebrate 20 years of Takalani Sesame in South Africa, we take a look back at some of the highlights of the past two decades in a fantasy diorama taxi ride.

This framing narrative takes us in and out of interviews, inserts and retrospectives and aims to weave all of these chapters of Takalani Sesame’s histories into a cohesive story.

As we take a journey with the muppets in Zikwe’s minibus taxi, our story-beats are represented by location pins: these are the lenses through which we can go all the way to the very beginning.

Client: Takalani Sesame

The Idea

We tell our story using markers stylized as location pins – each location pin takes us on a journey and represents a goal-post in Takalani Sesame’s 20 year narrative.

We create the world as if it was a tabletop flat-lay with paper-craft set pieces. Each of the paper-craft shapes is cut from colourful card featuring the celebration patterns. Our vignettes are then grounded with naturalistic soft lighting.
