Red Bull: Signature Series

"From the challenging peaks of the Canadian backcountry to the sandstone cliffs of Utah, The Red Bull Signature Series unleashes the most progressive and innovative competitions around the globe. All the action will be televised through jaw-dropping and one-of-a-kind action sports programming on NBC and the NBC Sports Network.

The Series spans the sports of snowboarding, mountain biking, freestyle motocross, ice cross downhill, skiing and BMX events on custom courses from the inspiration of the athletes themselves. Included in the mix are more than 20 of Red Bull's top events such as X-Fighters, Supernatural, Crashed Ice, Dream Line, Rampage, Cold Rush and more."

Description from AdsoftheWorld:
"When energy drink brand Red Bull asked Other Films director Scott Duncan to helm the opening for their new Signature Series program on NBC, he partnered with Spontaneous to handle design, VFX and compositing for the piece. Shot on location in Breckinridge and Glammis Dunes, the opening features stunning footage of extreme athletes performing breathtaking manoeuvres in truly epic locations set to a dynamic score and sound design. Creating custom typography, extending environments and pushing the in-camera magic further towards the impossible, made for a fun and high-energy start to the new year for Spontaneous."

McDonalds "Timber VS Farmer"

Sticky Rice's "Sushi in Space"

Thanks so much Adrants for sharing this one!

YouTube description:
"This was shot for a small chain of restaurants called Sticky Rice. They have a long history of doing marketing their own way and we knew they would love this idea.

In collaboration with RVA TV and Bark Marketing, Sticky Rice launched a sushi plate of their popular Godzirra roll on January 1st of this year. Six months of planning and testing went into this project as a lot of variables were at play: -60F in space, FAA regulations, overheating or freezing batteries, GPS issues, stabilization, and how to make the damn sushi stay together in high winds.

Our team is hoping for national attention and plan to make a shorter commercial for local air play. We loved the Toshiba 'Chair in Space' commercial and it was the basis of this project wondering if it could happen on a shoe-string budget for a small business."
