Commercial Animation

Here's a Wheat Thins commercial I worked on at the beginning of the year. It was directed by Dave Wasson, with layouts by Shag, and animation and everything else by me. It's a pretty simple piece, but it was fun to make. This was produced through ACME Filmworks, and they were great. But, as I usually found working on commercials, the Ad agency who hired ACME was a different story. The Wheat Thins box is yellow, and yet they demanded that the thought cloud be yellow as well. Now you can't even see the box, and the girl's skin color gets lost as well. But, I've learned that you have to pick your battles. Dave and I actually had to cut his spot in half and make a 15 sec. version, which is the one that aired. But we like this version way better. Oh yeah, Dave voices the guy, and Brooke Cadorette is the narrator. More commercial posts coming soon!

Funny, I always think of Wheat Thins when I look at Shag's work. They're a match made in ad agency heaven!

Great spot, it's nice to finally see his stuff move.
