Hasbro/Transformers Battle Masters' “A Warriors Journey”
ByRight Word Media
It’s a familiar ‘against-all-odds’ story about a scrappy boxer from the street who gets his one shot at the championship. Only this time it’s Transformer arch-enemies Megatron and Optimus Prime battling in the ring in this new, 3D animated epic boxing ad from animation/visual effects house Clockwork VFX for the new Transformers Battle Masters game and agency UPROAR!, New York. This hugely ambitious :90 spot, which began airing in May represents a significant creative accomplishment for the nine-year-old creative studio.
“This was an ambitious project from a CG animation perspective that truly tested Clockwork,” Jason Tomlins, Clockwork VFX’s Creative Director/Co-Founder says. “Ninety seconds of complex 3D animation, featuring an array of action sequences set-n photo-real environments, is a rarity in advertising, and it’s why this spot stands apart from everything else in the kids/toys market.”
