Penny Royal created this fun little commercial using stop frame animation and and motion graphics with Ogilvy.
We created everything from the original source imagery, post production clean up and even the sound design.
Chiquita - "Acerola Berries"
We did all the post production on this stop motion project for Chiquita. The sequence was shot in reverse, so the oranges begin on the floor and find their way back to the log. We also solved what has been a significant dilemma for smoothie ads in the past - the dreaded blend. Instead of employing expensive equipment, we used two plates, one a bottle of smoothies and the other a bottle of fruit. Lay one over the other and, once animated, the fruit appears to magically blend in the bottle.
Chiquita - "Less is More!"
We produced all the animation and VFX for this Chiquita tv commercial. The most challenging shot was the pouring shot, this achieved with two plates, one of the stream of smoothie and another of the smoothie bottle apparently emptying, which was shot in reverse to avoid residue. All of the sound design and music for the “Less is More” ad were created by us in-house.
