A knotty escapade

Client: Glenmorangie Ardbeg distillery, working with Greenroom films and Story.

A short film to promote the launch of the delicious new Ardbeg Corryvreckan whisky.

Working to a tight deadline we pulled out all the stops, going for a black-and-white, tribal art style with textures and footage overlaid. All hand-drawn, it’s the kind of animation challenge we love—even if the whirlpool section really messed with our heads!

The film won ‘Best Use of Animation’ and the prestigious Chairman Award at the Scottish Advertising Awards 2008.
