Optus Back With Another in Series of Entertaining Ads Explaining 5G

Optus has returned with another latest installment of its 5G campaign from creative studio Bear Meets Eagle on Fire and director Andreas Nilsson.

The film follows on from the recent launch of 5Grannies, 5Guitarists, and 5Geniuses. This time bringing together 5Game Characters, from different gaming genres, to explain the benefit of 5G bandwidth.


“This is my personal favorite,” said Melissa Hopkins, head of marketing, Optus. “A thoroughly enjoyable ad, that’s had an incredible amount of craft and love applied. The finish on this execution is second to none, as an industry we should be incredibly proud of the talent we have here in Australia.”

“This was a fun one,” said Jay Hawkins, post supervisor, Alt.VFX. “We knew we had to convey these as video game characters and not just something plucked out of a cartoon, so we played on styles from different genres and eras of games to allow for a quick read”, “Shooting with proxy ‘human’ talent on set allowed us for real-world interaction and a great base for us to bed our game characters into reality.”
