Recreating African folklore tales with life-size puppets, digital imagery and Embassy/Snap Pictures

After a rather serendipitous chain of events in May 2014, through-the-line advertising agency Twyne approached us at Embassy/Snap Productions to help them with an upcoming event. The brief was straightforward: help conceptualise, develop and produce content for the 10 year anniversary celebrations for Regiments, a company specialising in capital markets, investments and real estate, assisting the public sector to effectively roll out on their infrastructure mandates. Fair enough.
