after capturing the hearts of many, the sizeable georgian team behind ‘hungry hungry hamsters’ spent an astounding 1984 hours building the incredibly comprehensive set featuring 1350 tiny details. supremo, one of georgia’s largest producer of canned goods and food products was struggling to reach its target audience, as viewers were growing tired of traditional advertisements. as a solution, digital creative agency leavingstone launched its online series in an effort to revamp supremo’s image. this effort has lead them to win the golden hammer creative case award as well as the access key award.

with a dedicated fanbase, leavingstone‘s short series focuses on a food-obsessed hamster family living through day-to-day activities. the extremely detailed set features a flower shop, a bookstore, a movie theatre, statues of important fictional hamsters, and even graffiti sprawled against the wall. the short series has won several awards at the kyiv international awards festival, including the advertising campaign award and the production design/art direction award.
