A love story by PES for citizenM
To help celebrate the launch of its Times Square hotel – and its first foray into the great US of A – citizenM teamed up with the brilliantly inventive, Oscar nominated US filmmaker, PES.
His brief? Kill a towel swan.
The film – a satirical swipe at hotels with tasteless decor, pointless services and hotel clichés in general – is dressed up as a beautiful romance between two towel swans as they glide around a hotel bed. However, their mating ritual is brought to an abruptly violent end. The animation team took hundreds of painstaking hours to make the film, which is shot in PES’s trademark stop frame animation style.
PES, whose celebrated films include Kaboom!, Western Spaghetti and Fresh Guacamole (the shortest animation ever nominated for an Academy Award) is hard at work on a feature film in Hollywood, but took time out to work with citizenM.
