Nomint creates 500 polar bear ice sculptures for WWF’s melting stop-motion animation

Conceived and produced by London-based Nomint, a combination of 3D printing, mould-making, ice-sculpting, and 1000 liters of ice has been used to tell the tale of a polar bear and its environment. The film took a year to produce and was directed by Nomint co-founder Yannis Konstantinidis in collaboration with motion designers Marcos Savignano and Jua Braga, and music by Ted Regklis.
The campaign for WWF’s Arctic Programme shows one young polar bear trying to survive in an increasingly melting Arctic environment. Arctic sea ice melts quickly in the film, as is happening in real life right now, “changing the Arctic ecosystems forever, causing destruction around the planet,” as WWF homes in. The film’s goal is to act as a reminder to world leaders that they must take legitimate action as they continue to meet at this year’s Cop26 conference, widely cited as the most important conference of our lifetimes.
