Commercial - Vestel "Somalia"


Hi all!

 Here's our latest Vestel commercial we just finished at [unexpected](!
 Vimeo link to the spot:
 Vimeo link to the Making-of:

We really hope you enjoy!

“Not far off the Somali coast one of the big Vestel cargo vessels is taken over by pirates! Within a split of a second the ship has a new captain, the soup is gone as well as the cargo itself. Will our Vestrons be able to strike back?”

 Pirates discovering that the cargo boxes are empty...
 ... because all the white goods they were looking for, actually climbed out as pretty big robots.

After rescuing the ship and it's whole crew, the robots are vanishing again into their cargo boxes.

Not a single reply though.


just saw the shot, and i laughed. it was great :slight_smile:
a great job done.


amazing work i like it very very much :applause:


Thanks you two guys, for the good feedback! It was really fun doing this one… ok, except the crowd-shots. A shot with 200 characters, doesn’t multiply the fun animating by 200, does it?

@Harun: Yeah… I expected more posts myself and started wondering: did people just get lazy posting, or did I just put my thread in the wrong sub-forum? :wink:
