Tim Bullock Tells Touching Tale of Truckers for Lotto New Zealand

Creative 177 Add to collection

The emotional buddy story 'Armoured Truck' was created by DDB NZ and produced through Scoundrel

Tim Bullock Tells Touching Tale of Truckers for Lotto New Zealand
Director Tim Bullock helmed the third instalment of Lotto New Zealand’s ‘Imagine’ series, telling a story of two colleagues and friends that tugs at the heartstrings in the most feel-good way. The film follows on from 2015’s ‘Pop’s Gify’ and 2016’s ‘Mum’s Wish’.

Inspired by the true story of a Kiwi man who won $15 million and, true to his promise, split it with his mate, DDB NZ wrote the script for ‘Armoured Truck’ - a story full of twists and turns. Tim, who is represented by Blink in the UK, made the film through Australian production company Scoundrel.

Describing the film, Tim said: “It’s a warm, cathartic buddy tale exuding wish fulfilment but it’s also the story of the ultimate prank. One that we would all love to be in a position to play or have played on us. What we perceive to be a bad joke, then a crime in progress is revealed, in the end, to be a story of loyalty and generosity – highlighting the better side of humanity."

The Armoured Truck TVC will roll out with 120”, 90”, 60” and 30” versions, the 120” will also be used online and in cinema.
