GOOGLE CURSORS

by MOTH

Moth collaborated with Droga5 and Google to create this series of quirky films highlighting the interconnectivity of the G-Suite platform. And what better characters to tell this story then the Cursors themselves, a bunch of squares on sticks. As Moth put it, "In animation, the simpler the character the more fun the challenge!"

Set completely within the Google world and chock-full of humor and personality, these cursors are interacting, editing sentences and racing through documents; calm ones, over-excited ones, absolute stress heads and suave heroes that seamlessly save the day... and we need them all to get the job done.

Moth is a multi-award winning animation studio formed by Daniel Chester, Dave Prosser and Marie-Margaux Tsakiri-Scanatovits.

Since collectively graduating from the Royal College of Art, they have quickly become renowned for their perceptive, emotive storytelling. Whether it’s examining the looming threat of artificial intelligence, the effects of rainforest deforestation or the plight of refugees, their colorful, hand-drawn animation style and narrative cadence possess a maturity that belies their youth.

Their projects have been screened and awarded in festivals worldwide, including a BAFTA nomination for ‘Matter Fisher’ in 2011, a British Animation award for ‘HIAS: For the Refugee’ in 2016, a D&AD Graphite pencil and Annecy Crystal Award for their New York Times piece ‘Modern Love: A Kiss, Deferred’ in 2016, as well as an ADC Young Gun Award and a YCN Professional Award for their greater portfolio of work.
