Winkreative and Guru take you UP to Toronto

'Travel Happy' is a playful and colourful animated journey through Toronto for the Union Pearson Express

Winkreative and Guru take you UP to Toronto

 

Coming to Toronto in 2015, the Union Person Express, or UP as it’s been lovingly coined, is a new high-speed train that will connect the city’s downtown core to the international airport. As Toronto is the 4th largest city in North America, this service is long overdue and a welcomed addition to the world class city.
 
Working with Winkreative and illustrator Lotta Nieminen, Toronto-based Guru Studio set about to weave a colourful populated visual narrative out of the imagined “Union to Pearson” trip from the script. As Winkreative and Lotta Nieminen are London and New York-based, Guru Studio’s immediate goal was to educate and inspire the team with local knowledge about what makes the city of Toronto unique, so it would look great on screen. Guru Studio also brought on board Toronto-based director Larissa Ulisko, to further strengthen their vision and bring the culture of Toronto to life.
 
“We worked with Winkreative to balance the script with the visuals so we could allow some space to breathe life into the spot,” said Frank Falcone, Creative Director, Guru Studio. “We felt that we needed to keep the graphics and animation style very clear and simple so we wouldn’t overwhelm the viewer.”
 
“Travel Happy” is a stylish and informative trip through Toronto, and although the express train isn’t coming to Toronto until 2015, promotions for the service have already begun via the UP website where the webfilm lives.
