BBC Sport – Winter Olympics Animation 2010
Marc Craste was briefed by agency RKCR/Y&R to create a film based around a legendary quest, where an Inuit hero retrieves a spiritual stone that has been stolen from a mystical totem by a giant bear. While performing his mission, our hero reveals some pretty nifty sporting skills that would prove useful at the Olympics, including skiing, snowboarding, and curling. The film was commissioned via Red Bee Media, agency: RKCR/Y&R, prod co: Studio AKA, director Marc Craste.
The beeb have a habit of commissioning smart promos for these kind of big events. Remember these?
