As co-founder of moving image studio More and More, Carl Burgess – together with business partner Tom Darracott – has become one of the major innovators in 3D animation and motion design for the fashion industry. The studio has worked with the likes of Nike, Moncler, Prada, Chanel and Stella McCartney, but a busy last few years meant that Carl and Tom felt they had “got into a rhythm” and wanted to shake things up.
Hence the 50 Days project, wherein More and More shut up shop for 50 days to focus entirely on personal work. Instead of commercial briefs, Carl and Tom dedicated themselves to visual experiments, often based on a quick, off-the-cuff comment that morning. At Nicer Tuesdays, Carl told us more about the project and showed a selection of the awesome results.
