Cirkus perform like children for Knots!
“Animate like your kid!”
That was the brief from Manila based Production House Slingshot and Agency Black Pencil. To really bring home the idea that life is life is ‘Knots’ of fun we needed to bust out some stop motion animation.
Animation Directors Juggler Christian Greet and Flea Norman Yeend set up shop in the family home to shoot the product and our specially-created, free of copyright toys to tell this finger-licking story of a Knots heist.
After a bit of wire removal, it was over to Arcade to add the live action shoot outro. They brilliantly recreated our set using Norman’s wonderful props that were shipped from Auckland to Manila. Altogether, this was a lovely freehand, fun, ‘make it not the same’ commercial.
