Nobody's Girl - Book Trailer
Book trailers have become a very popular way to promote books. I found this one from Animal Media Group very compelling with its continuous motion and revolving shot around the car.
Info from Animal Media Group:
A trailer we created telling the story of, "Nobody's Girl," Barbara Amaya's Memoir of Lost Innocence, Modern Day Slavery and Transformation. It is her journey from a trafficking victim to human rights advocate, weaving together a story of loss, pain, courage, and transformation.

Lien Fatal Project - Pitch
Definitely a cool pitch from SHED animation studio. Incredible work and concept. Do check out the breakdown video, too.
Info from SHED animation studio:
We did it for a pitch.
Client : Canal D
Canal D is a Quebec TV channel that features non-fiction content on a variety of subjects. Towards the end of 2014, we proposed a concept for the opening credits to their flagship program titles "Lien Fatal".
The creative direction for the spots came from the concept of making links and relationships between things. Followed this we created a dark and abstract environment, where particles, lines and other elements connect and deteriorate in mysterious ways.
Conception, design & Animation: Gabriel Grenier, Geoffrey Skrajewski & Guillaume Combeaud.
Son: Gabriel Gagnon, Apollo Studios
