In Swedish “Se bra” means “See well” so a Zebra was the natural choice when creating a new spokesperson for the Swedish optometrist Synoptik. The animatronic head was built by Fido’s old friends at Fixas, and subtle animation of the face is added digitally by Fido.
The latest TVC for “Synoptik” focuses on passion.
Fido did a variety of different VFX including subtle animation of the animatronic Zebra head.
