…As the many indignant souls
Find themselves restored
In his majestic presence
As he rattles the very fabric…

Eallin has just completed the latest commercial for Auswide Bank, partnering with Melbourne based production company Thirteen & co.

This sumptuous film continues the journey of a couple of first-time buyers looking for their next home on life’s journey. We see their hopes and fears represented by lion cubs determined to “make it” in the jungle, effortless guided by the older lions.

We were determined to build on the success of the previous Auswide Bank commercial, the art direction mimicking traditional stop frame and model making. The agency chose Eallin due to our experience with these mediums allowing us to confidently translate them into CG.

" In order to achieve this we worked on the relative size and scale of the texturing of the characters and background elements to make the models feel like hand-made puppets. "

This included the set which was art directed to look as though it was made from paper, cardboard and balsa wood with subtle visible painted brush strokes in the texturing to give the impression that the environment is a model.
