"Gremlins"

Animation / Commercials

 

This television commercial was produced for ACD motor repair centres. They are a partner company to Battery Centre, for whom we made the “Sneaky” commercial with a little green gremlin. The spot features three blue CG gremlins who just like their green ‘cousin’,  like to fiddle with your car in the middle of the night! We see them on the outside of the shop window, plotting how they would break in.

We shot the film late at night, and took reference for all the lighting & shadows. The characters were built in Maya. Compositing was done using After Effects and Nuke. For motion tracking we used Mocha Pro. Ant conceptualised and directed the spot and supervised the entire production. This version of the commercial has an Australian ‘Steve Irwin’ style voice over.
