Standard Chartered Animated Film Pitches the Importance of Global Trade – and Egg Fried Rice

Standard Chartered Bank has launched a brand campaign that looks to reinforce the importance of global trade and the Bank’s role in driving it.

TBWA\Singapore has created and produced an animated film along with renowned stop motion animation director Mark Waring. to illustrate “a complex issue in a relatable and relevant way – allowing audiences anywhere to understand the power of global trade.”

The animated stop motion film tells the story of two villages that accidentally chance upon each other’s egg and rice trade, and by default, discover, wait for it… the dish egg fried rice.



“This animated tale sends a great message that without trade, there are so many wonderful things we would all miss out on,” said Emma Sheller, Global Head of Brand and Marketing, Standard Chartered. “It is an authentic way of delivering the impact of what Standard Chartered has been doing for more than 160 years to enable trade across the globe.”

“Amazing things are created when we come together,” added Andy Grant, TBWA\Singapore, Executive Creative Director. “We wanted to portray the advantage of global trade with a human story that delivers a powerful message, in an inspiring and uplifting way.”
