The Leith Agency and Famous Grouse returned to Axis Studiosanimation and VFX studio, to produce the latest Famous Grouse television commercial, part of a new global campaign to promote the Famous Grouse Smoky Black. It was directed by Local Hero and produced by Calum Hart.  The commercial shows the intrepid Red Grouse enjoying a midnight hike through the iconic Scottish Highlands.

Axis Studios worked closely with Local Hero to bring their directorial vision to life. The 20 second TVC, is set in ‘Grouse Country’, generated entirely in CG by Axis. The transformation presented an FX-heavy challenge, working with a dynamic feather and fur system, swirling fog and morphing geometry. The performance was likewise critical; our Grouse had to undergo a playfully scary change without losing his cute charm.
