FAGE "Plain" was created in February 2010 for the launch of Fage Greek Yogurt in the United States. Agency Mullen tasked us with concepting their Willem Dafoe, Seussian-styled VO to create a visual language that told a metaphorical story of the idea "Plain." With a production time frame of 5 week, the commercial is primarily live action with some CG components. To achieve the seamless integration of live action and CG, PSYOP NY teamed with Reel FX in Los Angeles, CA, where we shot a mixture of liquid effects, live action talent in a tank on the Warner Brothers lot, melting wax, and a live action cow. It features the voiceover of Willem Dafoe. Fage "Plain" won the following awards: 

ADC 2012 (Won: Gold) , AICP 2012 (Won: Design, Permanent MOMA Collection)  AICP Short List 2012: Visual Style, Design, Agency Art Direction, Copywriting, Clio 2012
