Our studio recently celebrated its 7th birthday! Yay 🥳

Over the last 7 years, we've grown and become confident in our abilities and ambitions – but we’re sure the best is yet to come!

We asked our Papaton Studio team members about the dreams they had for the future when they were 7 years old. Here’s what they told us 👉🏻

P. S. Guys, what dreams about the future did you have as a kid?

The Good Man | Soviet Snow White | PAPATON Studio

Check out one of the animations we've created for the detective series "The Good Man," directed by Konstantin Bogomolov.

Our main task was to recreate the scenes in the style of the tale about the Dead Princess, using the Soviet cartoon style. The characters were copied from the real characters of the TV series and adapted to the style of the fairy tale.

Nornickel: When I Grow Up | Trailer

Our new project for Nornickel is now live on Behance 🔥

It's a popular science series for kids aged 6 and 7. In making this series, which features 5 episodes, our goal was to help kids learn more about the major company located in their hometown, Norilsk.

Alongside the main characters — professor Nichrome, Nika and Nikita — the audience will find out all about what the company does and about the jobs they could have there one day.

Foodbank Rus | FOODcard

Check out our new commercial for the ФОНД ПРОДОВОЛЬСТВИЯ РУСЬ and their FOODcard charity initiative.

To render the illustrations, we opted for a pencil drawing style using pastel and monochrome shades with realistic depictions of the people.

The video was produced in 2D. Part of it uses classical frame-by-frame animation, with a 3D rotation used as a template to create additional hand-drawn elements.

PAPATON Studio | Branding

Hey! We’re looking forward to sharing our new showreel with you very soon, but in the meantime we're thrilled to introduce our new branding. 🔥

Do you remember the picture alphabets that helped you learn your ABCs as a kid? Where each letter corresponded to some kind of visual image? Well, we’ve given each letter of our logo its own funny mascot. The key idea behind the concept is that animation is a visual tool that replaces text, helping people of all ages, from anywhere in the world, to communicate with each other.

💬 What do you think of our new branding?

A sneak peak at an upcoming project for Beseda, a new startup that helps remote and hybrid teams communicate more efficiently using a special asynchronous video and audio messaging tool 🤳🏻

Our story idea centers round the fact that the main character, Vstrecha (which means “meeting” in Russian), finds it impossible to carve out time for herself in a packed schedule. So we decided to show how different characters can take part in work discussions at a time that suits them, fitting around their other commitments such as working, walking the dog, or looking after a child.

💬 We think this is a very handy tool for teams. Do you agree?

Meet Maria ☺️

Masha Potekhina is a producer at Papaton Studio. She is part of a project management pipeline, and she also briefs clients and selects performers for projects. An important part of her work is communicating with customers and processing feedback.

Maria draws her inspiration from other professionals. She is motivated by their passion for their work and driven by the idea that she is involved in creating something incredibly beautiful and stylish.

Rapid-fire Q&A 🔥

— What do you do in your free time?
I’m training to become a voice actress. Dubbing cartoons and TV shows is my hobby.

— What books have influenced you professionally?
"Screenplay" by Syd Field, "The TV Showrunner's Roadmap" by Neil Landau, "Psychology for Screenwriters" by William Indick, "The Writer's Journey" by Christopher Vogler.

— What advice would you give to people in this line of work?
Firstly, come to the profession because you love it, not because you want to make money. Work takes up most of your life, so why spend all that time doing something unless you adore it?
Secondly, don't rest on your laurels. Your career is like leveling up in a video game. The more you know, the better you will be able to perform and to grow as a professional.
Thirdly, be grateful for any experience you have gone through. Whatever happens in your life, nothing can take your experience and skills away from you. Keep faith in yourself!

Utkonos

Check out our new animation celebrating the 21st anniversary of grocery delivery service Утконос Онлайн 😉

We follow Utkonos through time from 2000 to 2021. He is accompanied on his journey by the main characters, events, and memes of those years. Utkonos literally “lived” every transformation that Russia experienced, and while he changed under the new reality, his confident gait never left him.

In developing the graphics, our task was to stylize all the famous characters of these years, making them a bit caricatured, but at the same time recognizable. We also created a long panorama of Moscow, featuring the city’s famous views and authentic details, and this serves as the background for Utkonos’ journey.

A sneak peak at an upcoming project in the works for Nornickel 🤫

In brief: we're working on an educational miniseries for kids. When we were thinking of ideas for the project, we were inspired by a Soviet animated film, The Mystery of the Third Planet, so we decided to focus on a popular science style.

Metrogyl A

Wondering how to deal with skin imperfections? Check out our new video for the answers! 🤫

The client approached us to develop an advertising video for the Russian launch of Metrogyl A, a product that tackles acne and blackheads.

The video is primarily aimed at women, so we chose softer pastel shades. The video features close-ups and visual imagery of flowers to emphasize the characters’ skin and explain what the product does.

The client chose this style as its preferred option for promoting the brand in Russia—a great result!

Bart

Check out one of our new explainer videos for Bart 👋🏻

Bart is a new mobile app that helps small businesses easily find micro- and nanobloggers with a small but loyal audience, who are willing to advertise on a barter basis, in exchange for free products or services.

In the brief, the client asked for a fairly simple, flat style with outlined characters. We suggested using a more emotional, trendy graphics style, mixing strict geometry and character hyperbolization, and employing a flat background with unique characters and gradient fills.

So, do you like the style of this explainer? ❤️

Comment.Show

Hey there! We’re ready to introduce the collage-style opening sequence we made for the "Comment.Show" on YouTube ⚽️

Our main task was to present the title and central concept of the soccer show, to give viewers a brief idea of what they’re about to see.

All the faces of the hosts and guests of the show are taken from actual footage, so we paid special attention to the emotions that we show in the opening sequence.

By the way, this opening sequence opened a series of live streams on the YouTube channel. Check out the reaction of the hosts: https://youtu.be/LmtvjwlManM?t=197

Yay! Our studio has won a G8 award in the Animation, Motion Effects category for our work on "The Good Man," a project of which we are especially proud. 🏆

We created six animated sequences in different styles for the detective series "The Good Man," available on the start.ru streaming service. The sequences were developed using four iconic animation styles from different eras, spanning classic Disney black-and-white through Soviet animation. The original series, directed by Konstantin Bogomolov, is based on the story of Russia’s most notorious and terrible serial killer.

This recognition is extra special since it is based on the evaluation of serious Russian and international creative and advertising industry professionals.

We’d like to thank the G8 organizers and jury for the interesting topics, fascinating speakers and relaxed atmosphere that helps to foster development and new ideas.

Looking forward to the next event in 2022! 🔥

Meet Sophia 🥳

София Соловьянова is a producer at Papaton Studio. Most of her working day revolves around lists: she’s either scheduling tasks for herself and for colleagues, or crossing out completed to-dos. “One of the best things about this job is the variety of processes involved,” says Sophia.

By the way, Sophia is not just a producer. She has a lot of interests outside work, as you will find out below.

Rapid-fire Q&A 🔥

— What inspires you in your work?
New projects, unusual challenges, and the freedom to take independent decisions and build processes. But the best thing to keep motivated is to take breaks from work to recharge and then get back at it with renewed energy. :)

— What books have influenced you professionally?
Creativity, Inc. by Edwin Catmull, To Pixar and Beyond by Lawrence Levy, The Anatomy of Story and lectures on genre by John Truby, Screenplay by Syd Field, and Creating Character Arcs by K. M. Weiland.

— What do you do in your free time?
I go horseback riding and I’m learning to sail. Sometimes it's also good to stay in, lounge around in bed, and watch TV shows all day.

— Which countries have you been to, and/or which would you like to visit?
I want to visit the Faroe Islands, Ireland, Portugal, and loads more. Of the countries I’ve already been to, the Netherlands stands out. I’d love to go back.

— Do you have a favorite artist (we don’t mind if they produce comics or fine art)?
I love most of the Impressionists, but there’s a special place in my heart for Van Gogh, Mikhail Vrubel, and Raphael.

— What advice would you give to people in this line of work?
Watch a lot, read a lot, and work hard.
