    STORY:
    In the film we see a young man's failed attempt at picking up a lady at a bar. A bartender steps in with a few pieces of advice, but as it turns out he's only interested in telling his favorite" bar tale" about his Great Grand Uncle Sir Høgni, who's chasing a die-hard muskoxen and involuntarily causes loads of historical and mythological events, including the lunar landing, crop circles, the sinking of the Titanic and the assassination of JFK.

  5. How Firefly came about:

    Ogilvy Johannesburg gave Shy the Sun a call with regards to two scripts they developed for Mnet. As they had a limited budget they asked us to see how we can possibly make it come to life. We really liked the scripts, but realized that going purely CG or a combination of CG and live action would be too expensive, and the last thing we want to do is compromise on quality. Ever since doing the Bakers Biscuits spot we wanted to create miniature sets, so we started exploring this option and realized doing so is the ideal way to bring these two pieces to life. The spots would have been created nevertheless, but with mentions of it being stereoscopic we started exploring the possibility of doing so and started exploring technical solutions to make it happen. Blackginger was the obvious choice to get to work on these projects, not only because we have a great relationship with them, but them having vast technical knowledge & an exceptionally skilled team.

    The Brief:

    We start of by seeing a lonely and deserted house in a dark forest. It’s a quiet and lonesome night when we notice a little firefly circling a light-bulb. The firefly is completely in love with this light-bulb, but it is on its last breaths of life, and soon dies. The fly gets completely heart broken and devastated, thinking all hope is gone. He wonders off sorrowfully into the forest, but then catches sight of something and rushes towards it. Having a glimpse at the firefly’s face we realize it saw something even better than the light bulb. It opens up on a beautiful pond scene lit up by a big bright moon in the sky. He falls head over heals in love with the moon and flies off into to the sky towards it.
