With Honda’s “Paper” recently nominated for a primetime commercial Emmy Award, what do stop motion animation guru PES and agency RPA do for an encore?

The answer is another creatively inspired piece of work directed by PES via production house RESET for the all new 2017 Honda Ridgeline truck. RPA wanted a commercial as innovative as the Ridgeline itself so it teamed up with PES to create a new visual technique incorporating stop-motion animation and time-lapse photography to capture the construction of a massive Honda logo, built with the power of Ridgeline.

The end tag slogan reads, “If you can dream it, you can do it in the all-new Honda Ridgeline.”
