Fantastic Beasts give us Dumble-more

Accenture’s ‘Cloud First’

Accenture’s vibrant campaign Cloud First from our New York team depicts a series of ethereal clouds that link scenes, showcasing how ideas and innovations can become a reality with Cloud Solutions. Working alongside director Daniel Kleinman, they brought the film to life from concepting and pre-vis, to LIDAR scanning on-set and VFX, with a gorgeous final grade by Company 3.
