Yoplait “Really Real Fruit” Campaign by Buck

Buck: “We partnered with AJF in Melbourne to evolve a series of fun stories for Yoplait that saw a cunning crew of fruity creatures get in all sorts of mischief.

“A series of unique spots were crafted to spotlight different products from the Yoplait range. Each featured a family of cute creatures built from real fruit in the respective product flavors.

“The viewer’s attention should be drawn first and foremost to the appetizing fruit. We filled out the animals using simple line work, keeping detail to a minimum so as not to distract from the main attraction.

“Each creature was made from fruit that resembled its inherent anatomy and imbued with personalities inspired by their species. Each creature also endured a long evolutionary process before arriving at their final design.

“For full control, we opted to build the fruit entirely in CG. This allowed us to pick and choose exactly which angle to present without worrying about lighting. It also meant we could manually beautify the fruit to look mouthwateringly delicious.”
