Millennia of Love in This Beautifully Crafted Film from Tinder, Fri, Jan 05, 2018

Editors' Choice: Creative studio Buck blends CG and live-action for the 'Invention of Together'

Millennia of Love in This Beautifully Crafted Film from Tinder

From stone age to digital age, Tinder is taking us on a time travelling journey of love in this new film 'Invention of Together'.

Created by LA-based production studio Buck, the film seamlessly blends CG animation with live-action sets, creating the vibrant and lush worlds the spot takes place in.

“Tinder came to us with the concept,” Ryan Honey, executive creative director at Buck, told Adweek. “They wanted to create a brand spot that shed a bit of a different light on Tinder and was more about people coming together. It’s more about this history of relationships throughout mankind.”
