Parks & Resorts marketing department came to us with this project and a story revolving how Gröna Lund came together.
The commercial is a spin off on the true story how the amusement park Gröna Lund is built on the love between the kids of two rivaling families that where both running amusement parks on Royal Djurgården back in the days. Love made them merge and that´s how the park came together.
We created a whirlwind sort of effect, something that would show the time past and a build up of all the new attractions at the park. It was not obvious at first but the idea grew that we would try to make it into a one take. Starting in a backlot in Hungary and ending in a drone take above Skeppsholmen. All in all a great project. We are very happy that Park & resorts had the confidence to just let us work and go for this.
The film was shot on Alexa/hawks, DJI spark, iPhones, google maps, Inspire 2. (in that order of apperance).
The Music track is composed by no one less than the Syndicate inhouse musical virituos genius meistro himself, ImAlec.
Who also stands for the the track on the VFX breakdown.
