Contagion and Cirkus herd cows for Fonterra’s MyMilk

Contagion’s Todd McCracken approached us with 3 great scripts for MyMilk. Supported by New Zealand’s largest co-op,  MyMilk helps first-time farmers, brand switchers and family successors in securing their future.

Inspired by Aardman’s classic ‘Creature Comforts’ series, these fully 3D character animated spots have been textured and rendered to make them feel as real as possible. In animation we’ve even skipped frames to get that imperfect stop motion feel.

Listen to Mabel take you through MyMilk’s benefits but maybe give each film a few watches to check out what antics the other cows get up to.

Special thank you and welcome to John Robertson who has recently returned from the UK. He designed the cows and layout as well as took care of storyboarding.
