Kaspersky - Max and THE encounter with the mobile malware monsters
This is the third film in the Max series for Kaspersky . The concept was to have Max inside his PC facing various malware threats from around the world. We wanted to use creatures from different mythologies to represent these threats and chose Asian and Russian creatures as our favourites. Cthulhu made his way onto the list when we happened across him and realized it made sense that he could find his way into this world through technology.
We started planting Lovecraft imagery in the other films, to build up to his appearance.
