Seems like a million years since we were using 2D animation, but this spot is only a decade old. Lots of fun little tricks going on here. For instance, when the kids fly into the cereal box, they are actually stop-motion puppets. In the product shots, the cereal letters are made out of sculpy and the milk is white glue. Under the ‘It’s a Small World’ heading: The little girl holding the spoon now hand models for us.

McDONALDS POWER RANGERSxxx

Love the loneliness of the opening shot. Very un-McDonalds. And no, there isn’t really a fast food restaurant on this road. We hauled the sign out to Palmdale. Another very early excursion into CG effects. Also one of our first big hits. At the time, this was the biggest selling Happy Meal toy tie-in ever.

NISSIN CUP O’ NOODLES

Probably you’re wondering what a Blade Runner cityscape, a suicidal bubblegum rocker, and a sewer dwelling humpback whale have to do with noodle eating. This is how the agency explained it to us: “Whales are humble. To be hungry is to be humble.” Japanese commercials are the best.

FED EX ADDAMS FAMILY

 

Director Alan Munro
Producer Brian Jochum
Studio Paramount

This was originally shot for The Addams Family movie. Filmed in one day at a downtown brokerage firm, it’s a combination of puppet work and prosthetics. No post production trickery here — all of it is acheived in camera.

We also supervised the visual effects, shot the 2nd Unit, and did the main title sequence for this film. Check it out here, here, and here.
