Before there was an Apple Watch, Chapeau was tapped to create high resolution, mesmerizing films from footage of live-action jellyfish, high-speed photographs of blooming flowers, and to breathe life into photographs of a collection of taxonomized butterflies. It was more than a year later when we learned that work had helped Apple create a catalog of interchangeable Watch Faces that would give users a beautiful catalog of visuals to customize the new Apple Watch to their own unique tastes. Our collaborations with Apple on the Butterflies, Jellyfish and Flowers yielded almost 50 seamlessly-looping animations for Watch users to choose from and enjoy.
