D'Arcy Ireland has used a new French 3D animation technique to produce a series of ads that it admits may annoy adults, but hopes will ultimately communicate well with children. The main target will be the audience of ITV's Saturday morning show, SMTV Live, with additional slots running on Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network.
The one 30-second and two ten-second slots will break nationally on 2 September on both satellite and terrestrial television.
The ads were written by Ricard Holmes and art directed by Richard Lamb-Hughes at D'Arcy Ireland. The animation was by SoandSau and Passion Pictures.
The media planning and buying is through D'Arcy Ireland.
