Directed/animated by myself & Ewen Stenhouse (Angry Natives, joint animation director duo). A campaign to encourage teenagers & young adults to learn a foreign language. Executed through the use of animation composited onto live action. The footage itself was shot in the sunny south of Paris, whilst the animation was done back at the studio through a series of late nights & overdoses of red bull/relentless energy drinks. The commercial is being aired on all channel 4 stations, MTV & a few others. Let us know if you spot it & win yourself a baboon!...
