175 Years


In honor of their 175th year, Domtar, a paper and pulp manufacturer out of Canada, wanted a video to celebrate their anniversary. Domtar has a lovely story and holds strong commitment to community. 

Agency Nez & Pez (Charlotte, NC) asked us to define Domtar’s story visually. After much exploration, we landed on an integration of 2D, 3D, and historical photos from Domtar’s archive! From key frame to 3d animation to cel animation, the suite of platforms were used to create this video. Our team pulled out all the stops. We hope you enjoy it and can spot the technical care it was given.
