Vodfone ZooZoo Ads - Watch and download

Posted by TechFancy On 6:56 PM 1 comments


DLF IPL -2009 is not only entertaining the world with exciting matches but also with creative and eye catchy commercials Ads especially vodafone's ZooZoo Ads.





These ads are characterized by egg shaped head called ZooZoo.These ads are really awesome and i can't avoid watching these ads and i have no words to describe.You might predict the result of IPL match but not what ZooZoo is going to do.



But how are these Zoo characters made??

Are they animated characters ??? No not at all . They are human beings who wore specially designed body suits. The design of the characters is such that one gets fooled into thinking it is animation, which was indeed the very illusion that had to be created. “In a sense, it is ‘live’ animation!” .

Prakash Varma, the famous South Asian ad filmmaker, Nirvana Films, has directed these commercial Zoo Zoo ads which were very challenging to create. The practical aspects of how they will move, talk, gesticulate and emote were very important. Essentially, costume design and artwork were crucial elements, they were designed in such a way that the body suits covered wrinkles that appear when the characters are in the motion .


“It took me three weeks of pre-production to understand how it will work,” says Varma. There were two fabrics that were considered for the body suits, and one was rejected for it had too many wrinkles and was shiny. The wrinkles would have shown when the characters moved, thereby shattering the illusion of animation. “So we chose the more practical, thicker fabric,” Varma explains.


Making Of Vodafone Musical Greetings Zoozoo Ad





The production team has divided the outfit into two parts:
the body and the head.
The body part of the outfit was stuffed with foam in some places, while the head was attached separately. To make it look bigger than a human head, a harder material called Perspex was used, which in turn was stuffed with foam (with scope for ventilation).

If one wishes to understand the size of this head, here’s a fact: a human head would typically reach up to the mouth level of this giant Zoozoo head. “We kept the hands and legs thin, which is why we cast women – and occasionally children – wearing the costumes,” says Varma. The thin limbs, contrasted with big bellies and a bulbous head, all add to the illusion that these creatures are ‘smaller’ than humans. Sets were created to suit the size of the Zoozoos.


Concept: Zoozoos are not animated characters. They are human beings who were made to wear body suits. The films were shot by Nirvana in Cape Town, South Africa.

As there are many people like me who love these ads, I thought of collecting all the ads (HD quality) and providing links to download them directly from Vodafone website.
