We worked with Filament Post to bring to life this delightful Penguin for British Gas.
Director Michael Arnold of Fresh Film was briefed by Ogilvy One to shoot the spots, which feature a British Gas Engineer, with a view to incorporating the cheeky penguin character Wilbur.

We received the original model from Psyop, who were busy on the British Gas ‘Planet Home’ series, but we had to adapt him to being in a live action film as opposed to the fully animated world he was originally built for. After some modelling and rigging tweaks we created all the shaders and started animating the shots.

As the penguin renders came through our renderfarm we would send them to Filament Post to composite into all the live action plates they had previously cleaned and prepared.
