The french team of directors Stéphane Leloutre & Tim Miltat worked with the 3D shop Sabotage Studio in Paris to bring the characters of Olivier Bucheron aka Zamak to live.
His characters chase a Peugeot 3008 until there is a scene in the end with boxes which feels a bit like being from a different spot. Two Left Hands threw in some Stop Motion Goodness for that part. Overall the animation is really nice, the 3D work is up to the job.
The real treat in the spot is seeing Zamak’s characters moving and interacting. The original designs are apparently made with ZSpheres. Very cool.
He has a little making of of the spot on his blog.
