GALLERY 19: Planet Internet - Ostrich

A clever combination of real ostrich footage and the use of an animatronic on set were used to create this amusing clip, the first branding campaign for the ISP. According to copywriter Huub Lensvelp, the robot could execute all of the necessary moves but didn't look like the real thing so a lot of work was needed in post-production. The flying ostrich was used as a metaphor for the client, which wants to communicate that the internet makes the seemingly impossible an achievable goal.
