Oreo Wonderfilled Anthem :90 from Martin Allais on Vimeo.

To put into words what it actually took to made this film happened is very difficult, more with my very deficient written english, so i will be short on words and leave you to watch the movie.
Anyways i need to say that it took us over a year since the first pitch in August 2012, when i just sent some illustrations, until Jan 2013 that we got the GO to start producing this spot.
Over all this time, we got a lot of ups and downs and literally the project got into the drawer several times. I did a lot of drawings, we developed a lot of ideas, we traveled, we met, we drank, we talked, we sent mails, we did storyboards, we change shots, but always in the best of moods and we are actually sorry that it came to an end, because we wanted to keep on this wave of frames and drawings.
Thanks there to the creative team @ Martin, for giving me this chance, i learned stuff, i enjoyed stuff and made some friends on the way. And thanks to my team here because they’re awesome and we together sweat the same to work this out.
This campaign has more surprises to come over the next months, and i’m happy to be part of something bigger with studios i learned from and i admire a lot.
I don’t know if you will enjoy this as much as i enjoyed doing it. But we certainly made our best for that to happen!
