I directed this fun thing for AIB bank, brought to life using a fully puppeteered bag (named Casey).

Shot over three days in Ireland and Bulgaria, the commercial was commissioned by Rothco and produced by Antidote, with post production by Screen Scene. The suitcase was lovingly constructed by Joe Fallover and his team.
