… check this out (first seen over the weekend):
“A team of 40 animators spent three weeks choreographing the models to create the 100,000 still images required to produce the 60-second ad.”
Yes, that really is clay-mation. It’s by Fallon, they of the other Sony Bravia ads, Cake Skoda and Cadbury’s Gorilla. The Sony ads are particularly interesting from a PR point of view because they are totally open to the public during filming and in fact that is integral to this advert. People take photos, show interest, and blog about the ad’s creation before it even hits the screens (which means I’m probably dreadfully late to this). Then the video that comes out of this process is perfect for viral YouTube-type treatments.
So is this PR, or advertising, or both?
