'The Wonderful House of Horrors'

Recent

When it comes to getting spooky we' ve got our pumpkin masks and ghostly sheets ready at all times. So when Facebook came knocking to help show the world how Halloween is bringing people together on the social network, we couldn't have been more electrified (Frankenstein anyone?).

 

The goal was to capture the emotional side of the holiday in a series of personal interviews, visual eye candy and energetic narratives knowing we wanted to bring that same human touch to the animated world that introduced our spirited live action. Inspired by the extravagant practical worlds of Paranorman and The Nightmare Before Christmas, we brought the haunted hilltop house to life, full of lights, frights, eyes in the dark and a few tentacles for good measure.

“The wide range of spots allowed us to explore bridging the gap between our spookiest Halloween-loving selves and our emotional side, focusing on the human moments in each interview.”
