Directed by Sam Brown of Rogue Films, with VFX/post by The Mill London, this “Coming Home” ad for Waitrose out of agency adam&eveDDB, London, show us a robin’s migration during the Xmas season. The fully CG bird makes an epic journey across mountains and the sea before finally reaching his home destination where a girl eagerly awaits his annual return. Upon his arrival, the robin is reunited with his companion. They share a festive treat, a Waitrose 1 mince pie, left out for them by the girl as she watches in delight.

The migration is accompanied by a soundtrack by Icelandic composer Johann Johannson, adapting his track “Cambridge, 1963” from his Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning score for The Theory of Everything.
