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!

Introducing award-winning online video – Musician Mind-Reading produced by Twomanycreatives.

First, we invited the Ligeti Quartet to a special recording session. Each musician was fitted with a mindwave headset. Then, we converted their brainwaves into CVS data, that we used to visualise their thought patterns as they played.

The Brief

The Ligeti Quartet is probably the less classic classical quartet ever. The music they play (from György Ligeti) is quintessentially experimental and extremely complicated to perform.

The Idea

We made a music clip where we showed exactly how their music feels. By using simple off-the-shelf brainwave monitors, we’ve been able to read the brainwaves of the quartet as they play the track. We used those data and treated them as a beautiful visualisation of the performance.

Children of Labor is a stop-motion PSA geared towards the children of labor across the globe. In our execution, we experimented with stop-motion animation and cel animation. We believe it would be appropriate to construct our set out of white foam. This is because such setting would match the cold, winter mood with added high contrast lighting.
