BHW

TV commercial for German bank/finance house. Sequence of shots showing model oak trees growing from sapling to mature tree. 15 different trees were made for sequence, all growing out of a piece of earth locked off and held in the model's hand. This sequence of images was intercut with shots of actors in the roll of a growing family, becoming older and financially better off. The trees at all stages had to behave like the real thing as air was blown at them to make the leaves and branches tremble. Sprung wire and guitar strings were used as the basis of the branches with the trunks built up in body filler and the leaves photo-etched in brass and soldered on.

Production company: Interteam Munich
