Kellogg's - The Box

Peter Sluszka - Hornet

Peter Sluszka along with our good friends at Leo Burnett London has new a stop-frame animation out, a celebration of Special K's first recipe change in over 30 years. Laced together with impeccable design and sensitivity, animation virtuoso Peter Sluszka uses the meticulous art of origami (a favorite of objects to animate) in his latest stop-motion piece.

Butterflies, birds and the famous Special K red dress girl (recreated in paper) take form through intricate folds, creases and pleats to symbolize Special K's transformation.

Nearly every little fold of origami and papercraft was brought to life in-camera at Hornet's shooting stage in Brooklyn.

The Land Rover (the only non-clay prop in the entire spot) goes on a cross-country adventure, tackling all types of terrain. As the car drives, we see small houses transform into skyscrapers and skyscrapers turn into trees. The trees melt into mountains and then to water, where a coastal road then emerges, leading the driver safely home.

1.5 tons of clay was morphed, manipulated and molded over hundreds of hours to create the assets for the Land Rover Claynation campaign. There were 3 sets in total that include the main commercial set, and separate sets for the print ads and other digital elements. The crew ranged from 15 - 20 people during the production, including the art department, animators and the camera team. The main set for the broadcast spot had between 1 - 7 animators a day transforming the clay set during the shoot. Other elements, like the driver inside the car, were shot on green screen that were then composited in post. Animators were brought in from around the country that specialized in claymation.

Stop The Roadkill

Peter Sluszka - Hornet

This furry Thriller directed by Peter Sluszka shows drivers what happens on the other side of the windshield. Collaborating with The Humane Society for Bosch, Hornet and Grey teamed up on this humorous film that advocates safe, conscientious driving via a band of cautionary, zombie animals.

Six puppeteers were recruited to bring five built-to-scale puppets (back to) to life through stylized movement and choreographed dance. Sluszka’s adept storytelling and the wildly creative team from Grey worked together from pitch to post, yielding an admittedly ambitious yet successfully hilarious PSA.

Amazon Prime Day

Peter Sluszka - Hornet

Leo Burnett and Amazon approached Hornet and director Peter Sluszka to lend his creativity to their vision for Prime Day. July 12th marks Amazon’s 2nd Annual Prime Day, a global, mid-year shopping holiday for its Prime customers to receive online deals. The truly integrated campaign combines broadcast and print advertising along with digital, social media and a site takeover.

Drawing inspiration from the delivery method of Amazon, Peter and his team of artists handcrafted a city made of Amazon’s well-known cardboard boxes. Utilizing in-camera, stop-motion techniques, the spot explores a whimsical yet contemporary metropolis with cardboard as its brick and mortar. The paper craft visuals extend to the cars, landmarks and even the people, all connected by the Amazon pins showing the range of the brand’s services and deals. The end result is a perfect blend of story-telling and artistry, proving that sometimes it's okay to think inside the box.

Permanent TSB - Back to basics

Peter Sluszka - Hornet

Prim and proper sheep, rabble rousing kids, a friendly butcher, and the rest of Peter's charming village folk bring personality to the first of numerous spots in Permanent TSB's ongoing campaign.

Little Lungs

Peter Sluszka - Hornet

Directed by Peter Sluszka and created for the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products' "The Real Cost" campaign by FCB New York, the tobacco-tinged "Little Lungs" appears in a series of digital videos, breaking today, in which his attempts to be cool and join in with normal teen life (and his healthy pink lung friends) are thwarted by his stunted growth, caused by smoking.

The campaign is designed to resonate with a teen audience and target them within digital environments such as YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram. Specifically, the campaign focuses on reaching at-risk teens, who live a more chaotic lifestyle and suffer from lower socioeconomic and educational levels making them more stressed out than their peers.
