Bank Coop Underwater 2013

In the business world it's said that everyone is paid in two coins: cash and experience. Well, we'd rather take notes for the two new spots in our 2013 installment of the beloved Bank Coop Origami commercials.

Short stories need big characters. The underwater performers show emotions and proof that little ones more than ever have the chance to win. Composer Alex Kirschner supports the tension of the film with a score recorded by an orchestra of 50 people conducting the ever modern battle big versus little.
