These two commercials were created for Fortis Bank, Amsterdam. I was briefed to create a warm and charming creative to introduce the bank's new products in a friendly way.

The 30 and 10 second spots are both set in a cream, textured environment. Both creatives feature a hand that gently slides, places and moves elements into shot to create one continuous sequence.

We shot all of the characters and props at a stop-frame shoot in front of a green screen. When shooting the hand we used specially designed tracking markers for each different prop to achieve realistic movement when it came to compositing.
