Working with AMV and Director Tom Hooper of Smuggler, The Mill helped to create BT’s latest spot featuring an adorable little girl video calling her grandad to show him a bird she has just made friends with.
The young girl runs all the way around her house chasing after her favourite new pet, documenting it all via her ipad so that her grandad can see.
Despite her and the bird’s erratic movements, the video call runs smoothly throughout, showing the reliability of the signal strength BT has to offer customers.
Mill Shoot Supervisor and 2D Lead Andrew ‘Barnsley’ Wood explains, ‘In this charming spot our CG team mainly focused on enhancing the look of the budgie on set.
As the bird struggled to take directions from Tom, we had to replace the bird on many of the empty plates.
Some of the advert is shot on an Alexa whilst others were filmed on an ipad, meaning we had to work to seamlessly composite the mixed footage together.’
Mill Head of Colour Seamus O’Kane, enhanced the overall look of this feel good spot in the grade.
