Atlas Copco wanted to add a new twist to their commercials, creating a wow efffect around their new rock drilling machines.
Kaktus collaborated with Riviera AB to come up with a funny new take on the advantages of the new D65, drill rig. The rig itself transforms to a huge robot and makes his way from the assembly factory to a very remote spot to solve the problems in a distant rock mine.
Kaktus and Riviera shot this spot in Kirkenäs at the northen edge of Norway, we’re talking close to the north pole and Murmansk. Kaktus then created the robot and a 3D version of the drill and animated and rendered the spot.
The compositing, editing, music and sound production was carried out by Riviera AB.
