IKEA “Our Little World” Spot by Mark Zibert and A52

With expansive VFX help from A52, Scouts Honour director Mark Zibert and Rethink craft an uplifting metaphor for the isolation we’ve experienced over the past year in this new work highlighting IKEA’s sustainability efforts.

Dhaval Bhatt, partner/CG at Rethink: “It was important to make sure the actions happening in each little world were honest and grounded in reality… both to help the spot resonate and also to make the sustainable lifestyles feel accessible.

“Once we reimagined the setting of the home into these little isolated but connected planets, we realized we weren’t beholden to a traditional neighborhood to represent an interconnected community. We were able to bring together different types of households with a more global feel.”

Joel Holtby, partner/head of art and CD at Rethink: “The entire world in which the film takes place was created in post in LA while all live-action was shot on a soundstage in Toronto.

“This required us to create different-sized dome structures as stages and set-decorate them by bolting furniture down to the structures, all while using live lighting and wind to bring realism to the environments on each tiny planet.”
