To kick off its annual week of cultural celebrations, Athens’ Summer Nostos Festival has released a vibrant and punchy 20-second animated commercial, directed by NOMINT’s directing duo Odd Bleat.

The brightly coloured and quirky promotional film captures the entire ethos of the festival. A series of vibrant two-dimensional animations seamlessly merge into one diverse and action-packed tapestry of all that SNFestival entails. Beginning with leisurely lounging characters sipping on cocktails on a grass verge, the film acts as a moving map of the festival to follow runners and rowers as they pace through the city. The uninterrupted scene also captures revellers, history fanatics and playing children before culminating in a flyover of the music festival’s line-up.

Athens-based directing duo Odd Bleat, comprising of Yannis Zoumakis and Manos Gerogiannis, were brought on board to creatively devise the spot.
