  • Bavaria commercial ‘Al 7 generaties lang’
    Royal Swinkels Family Brewers (formerly Bavaria Brewery) is a Dutch family business since 1719. The company is fully owned by the Swinkels family for seven generations. In this commercial they show how important it is to preserve family traditions. Carola Brockhoff was responsible to create an old age on actor Ernst ter Linden who plays Jaap Swinkels. Ernst plays a younger version, himself and an older version in this timeline commercial. Carola used a variety of techniques to change him 20 years older. We made small prosthetics and used old age stipple from Blue Bird and Green Marble Concentrate and Attagel. Coloring was done with skin illustrator palettes. For the hair we used Ben Nye Liquid hair colours. We achieved an excellent result.

  • Commercial Victoria Diaz de la Muertes
    The Mexican beer brand Victoria wanted to celebrate the Day of the Dead by sending out a powerful message: Mexicans are unstoppable, even in the afterlife. Inspired by Aztec mythology and present-day talent, the epic spot takes you on a journey into Mictlán: the Aztec underworld. For Mediamonks we designed and produced all the Aztec characters. This beautifully choreographed film starring the Mexican dancer Isaac Hernández and featuring an original score by La Banda Bastön and Geo Meneses. We designed the special make-up on the faces and bodies of all the dancers, hair work and the epic final of the film; the golden rebirth of Isaac. Both for the stills taken in Amsterdam and the film shoot in beautiful Iceland.
  • RoadGuard ad campaign
    For “Aanstekelijk Creative Agency” we created the complete character design, clothing, props and on-set applications of the RoadGuard viking in five different ages. We also did old-age make up of the car mechanics. Transforming the dutch giant Olivier Richters into a big friendly viking was gigantic!
