Nike – Roll Bounce

Lighting Designer: Matt Ardine

A normal NFL game is being played at Century Field with the Sea Hawks. As the Alpha Menace plants into the turf, the lighting changes at the moment of impact into a disco roller rink. The defense turns suddenly has roller skates on and Russell Wilson jukes them out, running down the field. To accomplish this, we added 350 lights into the stadium in 1 day for a 2 day shoot.

Director: Hiro Murai

Clinique created this interactive commercial/music video to show off their new line of lipstick. In this piece, Zara Larsson created 4 versions of her song, Lush Life. The genres are acoustic, dance, pop, and country. For each version of the song, we used the same set with different dressing and the camera did the same exact moves on the Milo motion control rig.  Larkin and I created 4 distinct looks to go with the different genres.
