Thompson / Simon the Ogre
Bringing a character to life in CGI is always challenging. Creating one audiences empathise with, who acts as the centre point of a truly emotive story is the pinnacle of visual effects. In this spot, Thomson Holidays reminds us of the power a vacation can have on us.
It was critical for success that viewers identify themselves or a loved one in our ogre and follow his journey restoring himself. Our goal was to make this character live seamlessly in the world filmed by director Fredrik Bond. Through careful use of prosthetics and CGI we helped Thomson Holidays make Simon a little less horny.
