Parallely to the realization of the animated credits of the web-series Généalogistes en Herbe, the Departmental Archives entrusted us with the mission of creating a 2 minutes film about their 4 main missions. From collection, to communication by way of classification and conservation, we discover, in a didactic way, the hidden side of the archivist’s job.

For the needs of this subject, we chose the technique of motion design, which allowed us to create a colorful universe. The objects and documents of the archives are associated with gestures and short sketches asserting the human dimension of the Archives’ jobs. A chosen range of color guides the viewer according to the mission.
