Reuniting with acclaimed live action director Steve “Spaz” Williams and food and beverage branding specialist quench, Harrisburg, PA, award-winning animation studio Calabash once again took a creative deep-dive, with the latest ad campaign from StarKist. The new spots spotlight the brand’s new line of Tuna & Salmon Creations® single-serve pouches and feature legendary brand icon Charlie the Tuna, alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure, perhaps best known as D.J. Tanner on the classic family sit-com “Full House.” Phasmatrope Studios, West Conshohocken PA, produced the spots.

“For the compositing effect to work they needed to appear to be speaking to each other and lit by the same light in the scenes,” Wayne Brejcha, Calabash Creative Director says. “Additionally, we needed to make Charlie his usual charming self, and create a photorealistic StarKist product that Candace grabs from his nimble little fins."
