Ben 10: Adventures in the Third Dimension - a 2D cartoon inside a futuristic 3D world

John Hill (Vincent London)

Ben Tennyson is a ten-year-old boy whose wrist-worn Ominitrix device enables him to change into alien creatures and fend off attack from extra-terrestrial forces.

The Ben 10 animated series first aired in late 2006 and ran for four seasons until 2008. This was followed by three seasons of Ben 10 Alien Force and two seasons of Ben 10 Ultimate Alien. The fourth installment, Ben 10 Omniverse, has been running since 2012 and is now entering its fifth season, in which Ben comes face to face with Albedo, an evil clone created by the alien Galvan race.

To promote the new episodes, Turner Broadcast and The Cartoon Network turned to Soho-based studio Vincent London, which produced three spectacular slots for the campaign.
