ELYSIUM

by MOTH

Hornet worked directly with the team at Elysium Health to create this elegantly animated promo for their anti-aging cellular-health product, Basis. This was Elysium's first foray into the broadcast arena, so it was mission-critical to achieve creative alignment from the start. With the combined vision of Moth and a talented team of writers, strategists, artists, and animators, Hornet worked with Elysium at every stage of the process. From honing in on Elysium's brand messaging, to navigating a creative strategy, to bringing the film to air... let's just say, the streamlined process added years to the Elysium team's lives, and the final spot has a stylish, timeless longevity that hints at a long lifespan to come.
