Lucas Zanotto: The Real Bears

Here in New York City, Mayor Bloomberg recently championed some controversial restrictions on the sale of sugary soda drinks, sparking debates about how much government should intervene in protecting the health of citizens.

While not everyone agrees about Mr. Bloomberg’s tactics, the health risks of sugary sodas are obvious. Or at least they should be.

In an effort to spread awareness on the topic and skewer companies that manufacturer the offending drinks, The Center for Science in the Public Interest has launched The Real Bears. Alex Bogusky (formerly the “B” of vaunted agency CP&B) masterminded the campaign, tapping one of our favorite directors here at Motionographer, Lucas Zanotto, to direct the music video that sits at the center of the project.

Mr. Zanotto recently released the director’s cut of the video featuring an alternative soundtrack. (Jason Mraz penned a sugary sweet tune for the official version.)

Interview with Lucas Zanotto

We caught up with Mr. Zanotto to get some inside information on the project.

Who approached you for this project? Why did they choose you?

I got an email from Marty Butler, from The Butler Bros. He wrote that he likes my work and ask if we could have a chat about a potential project they are working on. We had a Skype conference together with Ronny Northrop, who wrote the script for the movie. They presented the whole idea.

Marty said they liked my style and the way I bring in an analog and organic feel to the work. They wanted something minimal and crafted.

Frames Set Match for Animals Australia

We all know how horrible factory farming is by now, but what’s interesting about this particular campaign is that it seeks to maintain its Television airspace through viewers’ donation. If there is one ad that deserves to be watched instead of getting chucked aside by channel-surfing or toilet-going, this is it. As a friend of mine said, ‘if this doesn’t stop factory farming in Australia, nothing would’. Consider making a donation, folks. Or at least think twice about where that packet of meat you’re buying came from.

Frame Set Match (FSM) of Sydney did the wonderful job of bringing this chorus of animals together. Full credits and more about the process and the story behind this ad can be found here.

Thank you for the nudge, Guy and Stefan.
