Will Vinton Studios' Funny Syphon Filter 2 Spot
WILL VINTON STUDIOS has delivered a new spot entitled "Choices" promoting 989 Studios' video game SYPHON FILTER 2. Mike Wellins directed the CGI commercial for San Francisco-based ad agency, Butler, Shine & Stern. The spot is designed to look like a scene taken directly from the game. The ad starts with the hero running on top of a speeding train firing his machine gun at approaching enemy. When the valiant hero corners the villain, the evil foe suddenly asks whether he can be "done in" with something less painful than a gun. The hero points to a scrolling menu bar where the two decide on a more suitable weapon. Finally, the enemy is paralyzed by a taser and kicked off the train. Creative director was Barry Bruce and Leslie O'Connor produced.
