Behind the scenes
Boags’ “Russell Falls” was the follow up to the uber-successful “Pure Waters” campaign of the previous year… What it meant for Fin was making beer kegs… lots and lots of beer kegs.
And here at Fin, we love our beer. So after doing some quick research at the Cricketer’s across the road, we got stuck into it.
Both old-fashioned beer barrels and newer steel kegs were built using onset stills as reference. These were meticulously animated throughout the majority of shots with careful attention paid to the subtle water interaction around the edges.
Additionally, Fin built and animated a 5-story plastic whale and a robot who likes to fish.
Beer, Toys, Robots…what’s not to like?!
