We wanted to prove that decaf coffee could be a “work companion” just like regular coffee, even without it’s waking capacities. To do so, we tried to prove that great things could be achieved after some sleep, through the example of famous works, by notorious men, done after a good night of sleep. Things created in dreams, or inspirited by them.
The ideia that we came up with, was to animate the story of how Mendeleev discovered the Periodic Table by dreaming with it. The animation was drawn, frame by frame, by hand on the computer. Mixing some 3D composition for the scenarios. In the end, each frame were retouched by a Clean-up artist, by hand also.
The texture treatment and mapping of the film was used to make reference to the ludic world of dreams, where thing don’t appear to be as “concrete”, as “real”, and also to the coffee world with it’s colors, textures and movement.
