Havas Singapore approached Cirkus to create a 15” tag on for Total’s sponsorship of the Badminton World Federation (BWF). Using the existing model of Total’s hero character RQ4 (as created by Mathematic, a Paris-based studio), the Cirkus team animated and rendered a short sequence set on a badminton court. Powered up by Total, RQ4 prepares to hit a shuttlecock clear across the net onto the floor of the opposite side.
