How they made Müller’s Wünderful Stuff

This film shows rather neatly how TBWALondon’s recent TV spot for yogurt brand Müller was made using a variety of different animation and live action techniques…

Agency TBWALondon has just released a film that shows how its recent Wünderful Stuff spot (which stars an unlikely cast of fictional characters including Yogi Bear, KITT from Knight Rider and the Mister Men) for yogurt brand Müller was made…

Rather refreshingly this making of film doesn’t feature half a dozen senior agency or brand bods banging on about how difficult the shoot was and what a brilliantly creative bunch they are. Instead it simply shows various shots from the ad and then visually reverse engineer each one so you can see how it was created.

The 2D characters such as Yogi Bear and Muttley were painstakingly animated using the traditional cell-by-cell method; a 3D team spent months creating a Müller van that transforms into a lurching, smiling robot; and countless fruits were catapulted into a spike and filmed in super high resolution…

In print, Creative Review carries far richer, more in-depth articles than we run here on the blog. This month, for example, we have nine pages on Saul Bass, plus pieces on advertising art buyers, Haddon Sundblom, the illustrator who ensured that Coke will forever be linked with Santa Claus, Postmodernism, Brighton’s new football ground and much more. Plus, it’s our Photography Annual, which means an additional 85 pages of great images, making our November issue almost 200-pages long, the biggest issue of CR for 5 years.
