Class Cast <> Tiger King - Fitness Commercial

We shot the Tiger King sequel! Not really, but close. Sort of? We were approached by Jonathan Myers and Nikki SooHoo of ClassCast to produce a commercial starring Saff from Tiger King. Featuring a fun, quirky narrative that showcased the fitness app’s dedication to teaching and coaching, we shot this all in 6 hours in Koreatown while the COVID-19 pandemic was happening. Saff was a true professional and a blast to work with!

Primitive Athletics - Fitness Commercial

None of us go to the gym as often as we should, but Primitive Athletics of Lakewood, California has pioneered some new ways to stay fit yet also have fun at the same time. Bringing us into film their first ever fitness commercial, we filmed owner/operator Kat doing what she does best and leave us all feeling like we needed to pump iron after. Shot on 2:35 anamorphic lenses, we want to make her gym feel more like a dramatic stage and make her already epic workouts appear that much more spectacular for this fitness commercial. Where do we sign up?

Behind the Scenes

Beverly Hills Porsche: When Hollywood Calls - Commercial

Beverly Hills and Hollywood are mere miles apart but as far as the world goes, they might as well be adjacent. For decades, both have vied for PR supremacy on the zeitgeist of Los Angeles. All sibling rivalry aside, both have also enjoyed a close, symbiotic relationship: In this case, Beverly Hills Porsche has been a sponsor of picture vehicles to dozens of motion pictures, TV shows, and Hollywood publicity projects over the years and our client wanted us to craft a nostalgic commercial that would highlight that. 

With only a day to shoot on top of our other Chase Car commercials, we managed to put something together that was short and sweet for Beverly Hills Porsche’s ad campaign. Too bad we didn’t get to take one of these Porsches home after the shoot!

Chase Car Porsche: Chasing Perfection

Commercial

Chasing Perfection

Behind the Scenes

Porsche + Chase Car: Chasing Perfection - Commercial

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is hands down one of our favorite movies of all time, and we channeled our inner Nolan in producing ‘Chasing Perfect’ where we took a meta look at what goes into making a car chase happen and breaking it down into its various elements. To us, it wasn’t all about the chase, it was about how the chase was shot and the brilliant connection of man and machine that made it all happen.

For our second spot, the Fastest Camera Car in the World, we wanted to push the equipment to the limit in order to test Chase Car’s claim that they had the fastest camera car in the world. We found ourselves a radar speed gun and actually pushed the fully equipped, fully loaded (with 6 people) camera car all the way to 104 miles per hour on the straight away at Willows Springs International Raceway. We got it on camera of course, and lived to tell the tale.

In concert with our Behind the Scenes documentary Behind the Chase, these spots served as part of a ad campaign by Chase Car and Beverly Hills Porsche to showcase both the glamor and grit of these amazing machines we’ve come to love and lust for.

Behind the Chase

Chase Car + Porsche: Behind the Chase - Documentary + commercial

Being car guys, we’ve marveled at how commercials, feature films and TV shows have gotten such incredible car shots over the years. We’ve worked with Chase Car Inc. since 2009 and when they offered us a chance to produce a series of 3 commercials in conjunction with a Beverly Hills Porsche campaign, we leapt at the opportunity to film these majestic vehicles tear some asphalt up.

Shot with a small crew of dedicate multi-talented filmmakers over a single day at the famous Willow Springs International Raceway in Kern County, California, we shot 3 commercials and this Behind the Scenes documentary focusing on the Chabot brothers who started Chase Car Inc (previously Camera Car Industries) from the ground up. In filming the documentary, we had a really surreal moment where the elusive, normally hidden Porsche Panamera Chase Car (designed matte black to be as stealthy as possible) became the star of the show when filmed from the older Porsche Cayenne camera car. 

On top of featuring some stunning, world class imagery of our picture vehicles in action, Behind the Chase provides an in-depth look at how the Chabot Brothers conceived their revolutionary Porsche Panamera Chase Car, it’s unique features, and most importantly – the heart and soul of why they do what they do.

Audi Motorsports: Illumination at the Nürburgring

We had the privilege of filming the 24 Hours of Nürburgring for the Audi R8 LMS Cup and made a little video dedicated to the team and the hard work they put in over countless days and nights of hardcore racing. Shot on the Red Epic, we specifically chose anamorphic lenses and Aputure lights to accentuate the cacophony of sights that are a sight to behold at the famous, storied racetrack.

Presenting Jo Wrapal

Jo Wrapal - Commercial Series/Ad campaign

Inspired by heroes we’ve come to know and love like the Dollar Shave Club guy, the Old Spice man and Dos Equis “the Most Interesting Man in the World”, we were inspired to create our own super hero – Jo Wrapal, a smug, self-aware and arguably accurate description of a Hollywood film producer. We created this persona and a slew of 3 accompanying commercials for Wrapal.com, a startup that connected filmmakers to film locations across the country.

Filming in continuous one-takes, our team had to go through a serious level of coordination and multiple takes before we could finally nail the perfect shot. The results were well worth and left us chuckling for more.

Martin Scorsese Canon C300 Spot - Commercial

Imagine getting a call that you’ll be getting to direct one of filmmaking’s most legendary directors for a new Canon Commercial? 

We had to pinch ourselves to believe it, but sure enough – we were honored to be able to produce this short but sweet Canon commercial highlighting the launch of the then brand new C300 video camera with none other than Academy Award Winning director Marty Scorsese. Despite having directed hit after hit like Raging Bull, The Departed, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, The Irishman and more, Scorsese was humble to a fault and a true gentleman to work with.

LSTN Headphones: City of Dreams - Commercial

We all know music takes us to a different place mentally, but what if they had the power to take us to a whole different place; literally. This kernel of an idea was the genesis of our commercial for the LSTN Headphone Company.

Shot over a 12 hour period overnight around the city of Los Angeles, we explored the transformative power of music as personified by these amazing headphones and showed how quality audio can take us wherever we want.
