VERY stoked to finally share some of my latest commercial director work that’s playing all over your TV’s here in the USA. It’s the new 30 second broadcast TV spot for that great outdoor brand, REI.
Remember all these posts back in March, chronicling the day by day shooting of a video-and-print campaign-all-in-one shoot?…working through some curveball weather challenges? Well, this spot here is one of the fruits of that labor.
As you can see, our patience persevered on the weather. Huge thanks to the entire cast & crew that worked so hard to pull this off. I’m humbly grateful. A massive team effort, with a ton of sweat and laughs, waaaay up at 12,000 feet. And you might even recognize the fresh bed of music we licensed…thanks to our talented compadres from We Are Augustines.
Lemme know what you think of the spot [update: and of course feel free to ask any questions…] and stand by for a behind-the-scenes RAW video coming soon that’ll highlight how we snagged the the most important shots using cranes, jibs, steadicams, and a very special helicopter.
It’s actually a good and helpful piece of information. I am happy that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
Just curious where you shot it . . . and did you have anything to do with the other REI commercial––the guys under the rock, waiting out the rain. The Rock looks very familiar. Thanks. bob
Great ad, even better song choice. If not for the ad I would not be on this We Are Augustines high I’m on right now. You’re doing great things. Thanks.
