ROWDY. A Film and Commercials Production Company.


EBike brand VanMoof has teamed up with Tobias Fouracre, known for his work on Isle of Dogs, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Corpse Bride, for a new campaign and advert, Hard Times for Super Thieves. Featuring three stop motion plasticine characters, or “super thieves”, trying to steal a miniature 3D printed VanMoof, the campaign attempts to talk about anti-theft technology “in a more lighthearted way”.
