We Shot Some Bunnies!

Beaker Films produced a series of National TV commercials for Purdue Pharma’s Colace®, featuring a couple of tough looking characters and some adorable bunnies.

The spots, which air nationally, feature a “tough character” who is suffering from constipation. Our hero, the adorable cape-wearing Colace® bunny, arrives to help the tough guys and make them feel the difference a little “softness” can make.

Animal trainers were on-set to wrangle four trained bunnies and to ensure no animals were injured during the filming.

The spots were shot in 6K on RED Weapon cameras and Zeiss lenses. The spots were edited by Jeff Taylor in FCPX and graphics/color correction were done in Flame.
