Director Jack Cunningham of Nexus Studios directed this stop motion film for startup energy company Hometree out of U.K. agency SNAP LDN.

Titled “Bath Time with the Field Family,” the first U.K. TV spot for Hometree features a family of mice living in a tree home created by master puppet and modelmaker Andy Gent’s studio (Isle of Dogs, Fantastic Mr. Fox). We see the parents drawing a bath for playtime in the tub for their adorable litle tyke.

Cunningham said, “The biggest creative challenge for me was developing the anthropomorphized world in a way that hasn’t been done before. I took the ‘old fashioned’ stop motion way to reduce the postproduction process and capture as much on camera as possible.”
