Backgrounds I designed and painted for the pilot trailer of the Mekka Nikki TV show project.
Roughly a 6-7 weeks work.
Every shot contains several fully painted layers. They were "animated" in After Effects, adding some very cool parallax effects.
Number of layers varies according to shot complexities, 3 being the minimum to get a good depth effect.
Character illustrations feature on the BGs are from Antoine Bouzin.
Mekka Nikki, created by Exaheva and Félix Laurent.
TV adaptation by Dada Animation & Squarefish.
