“The Zodiac Race” is an animated film which is a part of the “Cycle of Life” campaign for Onitsuka Tiger‘s 60th birthday. It tells the legend of the Zodiac Race: 13 animals raced each other for one of the 12 spots in the Zodiac calender. The race takes place on an island shaped like an Onitsuka Tiger sneaker, which features many Japanese landmarks. The landscape doesn’t just exist as a 3D world, it is actually based on a real 1 meter big model. The excellent animation work was done by PandaPanther, the campaign was developed by Amsterdam Worldwide.
