View Full Version : Three Swiss Adverts

03 March 2008, 02:15 AM
As some of you may know, I recently worked on three adverts for the Swiss real estate company Homegate through my friends at the production house Bully Entertainment ( right here in Charm City (that's Baltimore to you Swiss...) I wrote the three ads (working off of ideas from the client) drew storyboards, directed the animation, and even built all the environments. The talented artists at Bully built the characters after my original designs, and the talented Stephen Karp animated everything. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. Me likey.

You can see the ads at the links below.

The first was about a mouse who's grown too fat... I apologise - we don't have English translations yet, so you'll just have to endure the gorgeous female German voice at the end. Heidi Klum, anyone? Ah, a man can dream. But for those of you who don't sprachen ze Deutsche, the basic thrust of the tagline is "House too small? Maybe it's time to move..." (

The second advert was about a cuckoo who has a tough gig. I'm showing you the French version because the timing on the last joke is better. To those of you who don't parle vous Francais, the gorgeous female voice at the end is saying something along the lines of "Tired of your commute? Maybe it's time to move..." (

The last one is about a Penguin who's thinking "There goes the neighborhood". The german at the end says something like "Neighbors got you down? Maybe it's time to move..." For all its simplicity, this one is my favorite, particularly the igloo gag at the end. (

Just downloaded them now!...LOOOL, oh man, great stuff, I like the first two a lot, very funny...the third one is fine too though, just that the first two are a lot more involved and funnier, not that its not funny, the little character is great in that!

Wonderful little trilogy of adverts there Steve!
