We stepped out into the neon-lit streets of Hong Kong to capture rare moments of stillness. With our footage in the can we took our film a step further by designing computer animated horses that gallop through the city. By combining 3D animated horses with our live action content, we created Hong Kong’s first digital moon-lit horse race. This film was co-created with Nikopicto to celebrate the Year of the Horse!
