Dashlane “Random On Purpose” by Oliver Davies

Oliver Davies, The Mill director who made a splash earlier this summer with his visually innovative work for Manchester United and Adidas, returns with a striking and surreal VFX adventure for Dashlane’s password manager.

Mill Director Oliver Davies: “The biggest challenge with this metaphorical tale of totally unguessable behavior was to source exactly the right stock footage to set up a believable nature doc vibe, and then seamlessly blend it with photoreal CGI and layers of design elements for when things start to get random.

“Completed in just four weeks at the height of lockdown and across at least six time zones, it was a real team effort between agency, client, multiple departments at The Mill and editor Ben Campbell at Cut & Run to find the best way of telling this unpredictable story.

“Luckily for random rabbit (and me) everyone involved was 100% committed to the task and possessed much talent and good humour and so it was a pleasure from start to finish.”
