Some transatlantic collaboration between US/Canada and Geramany + Sweden with Fido heading up the VFX.

Commercial for the search engine Kayak needed a sequel and Fido stepped in to rework the octopus so that he could speak. We then created all new shots with him speaking, perfectly imitating the look set by Image Engine in the old shots.
