Mastering monsters

Does it Bug you to be sick all the time?

We gave all fevers and discomforts a face so you can easily recognize them! All these different ‘bugs’ have their own personality that fits their disease perfectly. We brought several of these monsters life for a 6 part TVC campaign, multiple keyvisuals and even an AR app.

What better way to present each individual character than have them take a group selfie? In our teaser we showcase all of them together.

Can you tell which one is which?

Making these buggers

You film, animate and paste it in right?
Something like that… Take a look at this epic breakdown to see what we pulled off behind the scenes.

Integrating stylized characters in live-action plates requires an intricate proces of on-set and post collaboration. You want to get all details right, from interaction with live objects and/or persons, the credibility of the animation, to the tangibility of the materials and composited integration.
