Yakult : The Tale of Tommy Chan (Visual Development)

In late 2012, I was working with a creative team, Watusi Manila for their client Yakult to promote good bacteria and proper digestive awareness for schools, children and families. The film was about an energetic boy who loves martial arts and has a massive appetite for street foods that got out of control. 


We’ve come up many exciting ideas such as comics, webisodes and other online approach to make the campaign viral. As expected, a lot of ideas were scrapped from the boards as the client would prefer mass-appropriate contents. The video above is the unpublished version of the film, the music was borrowed from Patrick Rondat “Vivaldi Tribute” treated as a dummy music for the arranger to compose before the animation was shelved. Here are the design studies that I have worked with the team.
