The winners of the Epica Awards have been announced, and we’re excited to see that EasyJet ‘Hide & Seek’ has been awarded Bronze in the Post Production & Visual Effects category, and Dick’s Sporting Goods ‘The New Kid’ Bronze in Animation.

Created by VCCP and directed by Alaska, featuring VFX and color grade from MPC, the ‘Hide and Seek’ campaign stretches to the four corners of Europe, showcasing amazing hotels and destinations available through easyJet holidays. From a beach in the Algarve, to a souk in Marrakech via the mountains of Iceland and a blissful infinity pool in Santorini.

‘The New Kid’ is a charming story about the DICK’s Sporting Goods products coming to life once the customers have left and the shop has closed, and sees Anomaly, directors Shawn Levy and Will Gluck from Pacific Rim Films, and MPC partner up. Taking inspiration from feature film Night at the Museum – also directed by Shawn Levy – the objects, from Nike and Adidas shoes, to Louisville Slugger golf clubs, roam freely around the store and play games before the shop reopens and normality is resumed.
