MTV Ex On The Beach

MTV - Ex on the Beach


In anticipation of the meeting of the Exes from The Only Way is Essex, our brief was a sort of Saving Private Ryan storm of the beach, but with love guns, shark jets, and terrific fire-spitting hydras.


Working closely with the live action team, we covered everything from the shoot VFX supervision on set in Majorca, design of all objects and creatures, beautiful traditional cel animation, to involved post production (which included replacement of banana boats with sharks, as usual...)
