Longtime Super Bowl advertiser Hyundai purchased two 30-second in-game TV slots during the February 2016 climax to the NFL season. Hiring four world-class directors from Santa Monica-based Biscuit Filmworks to help create their Super Bowl 50 ads, Hyundai faced-off in the first quarter of the game with The Chase. Directed by Aaron Stoller, the brief thriller ad shows two hikers being chased through the woods by hungry bears, before escaping in their new 2017 Elantra — thanks to the car’s remote-start function.
Zita Kisgergely and Juan Amin’s Budapest-based Flatpack Films is one of Hungary’s leading production service companies, particularly for commercials. The company has years of experience and a network of contacts stretching across Europe and from India to South Korea.
Flatpack has a reputation for reliability and problem solving. The company, previously known as PPM, recently oversaw production of a lavish new Montblanc ad featuring Hugh Jackman that shot in Budapest with an international crew. The company has also serviced a commercial for Hyundai, which follows a child who grows up fascinated by cars — and ends up driving a Hyundai.
Kisgergely and Amin are fixers who know just how to access locations and to enable foreign producers to work in Hungarian studios with local crews. “Due to our 20 years of experience, we know everyone in the Hungarian industry,” Amin explains.
When it comes to features, Flatpack is presently servicing an Indian project called Raabta, which is now shooting in Budapest.
A shamanic snake charmer, a challenging Mallorcan location that tested the crew to its limits, and breath-taking landscapes on the Spanish island all helped give Susanne Bier’s six-part TV series The Night Manager the sweep of an epic cinematic movie.
