Framestore worked with Rattling Stick, MarkenFilm GmbH, and creative agency Antoni, to deliver the VFX-laden campaign 'King of the City Jungleâ' for the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Combining an unorthodox pairing of alpha businessman and jungle giant, Framestore's skilled 3D artists crafted an astonishingly believable hybrid character for the piece.
