Ovo — Politicians Before 1900

Ovo — Politicians Before 1900

For Italian media company Ovo we made a series of short documentaries about politicians from human history before 1900. The videos are part of the online video encyclopedia ovo.com

Each video was made in only 7 days. All male characters were played by one actor. The fotographic footage we shot with the actors was rotoscoped in Photoshop and then animated in AfterEffects.

All stories were written by the Ovo company and they also recorded the voice over.
