In 2008, two agency creatives named Jan Kalvoda and Premek Ponahly teamed up in a secret lair in Prague to become Wolfberg. Their mission: to leverage their wealth of experience at renowned agencies such as Leo Burnett, Euro RSCG, and Y&R to save commercial filmmaking from the evils of mediocrity, facelessness, and boredom.
Wolberg’s stroke of genius often combines different filmmaking mediums and methods, such as in-camera effects and stop motion animation, into one mesmerising mix of visual artistry. Pairing of live action and stop-motion for the Budweiser/Budvar spot “Dark” exceeded filmmaking expectations, leading the pair to take home a Golden Drum.
Most recently, the Wolfbergs have helmed projects for WWE2k2019 via Barret SF and Golden LA.
