The Concept

ASN Bank changes up the financial world with their new campaign. They demonstrate in a playful way how money can actually make you happy. The financial world is all too often represented in a cliche image. This gives ASN Bank enough reason for to change it to a more contemporary image. The story of the Creature of Habit is honest and the voice over takes you back to those dreamy bed time stories.

Koert van de Ploeg, Colourist at Ambassadors describes it as – an ordinary looking forest where nothing is what it seems to be. “Together with Vincent Lammers I worked on keeping a certain realism within a fictive world. By thickening the canopy within the forest we emphasise the darkness surrounding the Money Badger, but at the same time adding light streaks and spots to sympathise with the Creature of Habit. Together with the whole team we came to a unique balance between light, dark and colour while retaining a realistic concept”

The Idea

The realistic fabric furs, emphasises the tangibility of the characters which accentuates their primary characteristics. “The Creature of Habit wears a woollen sweater, where the Money Badger wear a tie and is made of a striped flannel suit fabric” explains Lammers. This contradiction is also very audible in the music which makes a combination between a playful and a serious tone. “The music needed a severe sound that has a lively translation on screen”, explain Sebastiaan Roestenburg, Founding Partner and Composer at Ambassadors. “So I started looking for sounds that triggers the imagination like the melody of the Celeste piano. It instantly take you to a fable world”.

The film, a masterpiece with an extensive eye for detail, is also very apparent in the animation. Watch Creature of Habit here!

TBM Receives Platinum Award

In an apocalyptic future a man is searching for something. On his way through the wasteland he passes the remains of some of Copenhagen’s most iconic buildings (Queen Louise’s Bridge, Round Tower and The City Hall). He finally arrives at his destination at a dark and sinister looking place. He lights a flare, and the iconic wolf from Copenhell’s festival venue appears in front of him. The earth cracks open and hell breaks loose. Welcome to Copenhell 2017!

Copenhell Commercial by TBM Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Project Title : Copenhell

Category : Video

Country : Denmark

COPENHELL is Denmark’s greatest rock and metal festival. It has drawn metal fans from both within and outside the country’s borders to Copenhagen since the beginning of 2010. The peninsula called ‘Refshaleaøen’ right in the middle of Copenhagen is the epicenter of these three days of hell on earth. The raw, industrial surroundings are the perfect background for the brutal decibel bombardment from COPENHELL’s three stages. The theme for this year’s Copenhell is  “The Apocalypse” and therefore a natural set off for the commercial.

In the opening scene “The Scavenger” is getting a signal on his device. Then, he sets off searching the wastelands. To link the scenery to Copenhagen we placed iconic buildings from the city in the environment. The Scavenger is also the center in the print campaign for the festival.
