Uli Meyer Animation has just finished its second Cookie Crisp commercial, SPRING IN THE CITY, for Saatchi & Saatchi London featuring Chip the wolf.
It plays on the same theme as the previous commercial SLING SHOT, also directed by Uli Meyer; Chip inventing new and wacky ways to obtain his beloved Cookie Crisp.
Chip imagines a city made from huge boxes of Cookie Crisps. With springs on his feet Chip bounces to the city via springs on his feet and tries to grab the kids Cookie Crisp. He gets hold of a box, but twists upside down and all the cereal falls out. The commercial ends with the wolf pole-vaulting toward camera, exclaiming, Next time Ill get my Cookie Crisp.
SPRING IN THE CITY was animated traditionally in 2D with backgrounds created in Photoshop and textured in Maya. Moving cars were also modelled and animated in May, while it was composited in combustion at the London-based studio.
