“Dunkin’ NHL” Stop-motion Making-of by Peter Sluszka and Hornet

Hornet: “Director Peter Sluszka teamed up with our friends at BBDO New York, to create a series of stop-motion ads showcasing life inside the National Hockey League bubble… featuring NHL stars David Pastrňák of the Boston Bruins and T.J. Oshie of the Washington Capitals.

“Since this was Dunkin’s first-ever stop-motion work, we went to great lengths to make the players come to life — developing nearly two dozen different, hand-painted heads for both Pastrňák and Oshie, with shots taking six-eight hours each.”
