Thomson / The Bear

Last year Realise worked with BMB and Thomson Holidays to help Simon the Ogre get back to himself. This year we found a new cause, Miles the Bear. This poor guy had the long suffering frown of a much loved teddy who desperately needed a break from the trials and tribulations of family life. Masterfully filmed by Park Pictures’ Tom Tagholm, Miles journeys from the tiring everyday to a transformative holiday helping him to get his smile back.

In the studio, our work focused on finessing the photography, balancing smiles, environment work and a CG plane. This was another great spot devised by the team at BMB and we were really pleased to be a part of it again. Thankfully, we had the dulcet tones of the one and only William Shatner to help us on the journey.
