Ninja Hattori is a 2D-animated Japanese series that has been popular in India for years. This 15-second ident is tasked with associating the Nickelodeon brand with Ninja Hattori and announcing new episodes.
Leroy + Clarkson came to Galaxy 61 with the project, and provided us with character stills and rotoscoped sequences from the limited-animation series. The team at G61 tracked the character movements, and, using cloth simulation and other techniques, created a sequence of Hattori hacking a Nickelodeon logo out of a solid piece of orange paper. Much orange confetti is created.
