Pete Candeland of Friends Electric directed this animation spot for Great Western Railway featuring The Famous Five, a group of adventurous young children and their dog Timmy from the series of novels by English author Enid Blyton. 

Titled “Five and the Missing Jewels," this ad out of agency adam&eveDDB, London, has the Famous Five chasing a scoundrel. And they’re able to stay in hot pursuit of him thanks to the Great Western Railway transit system.

Friends Electric worked in tandem with sister VFX/animation/post shop Electric Theatre Collective on the commercial, which is the second for the Great Western Railway that Candeland directed starring The Famous Five. Once again, Candeland meticulously crafts classic painterly images true to Blyton’s series of novels, realized with an adept use of CG.
