Floating in a sea of stills

I was afraid of this brief when it first landed on our desk, but after meeting the client, I can honestly say that they have been a pleasure to work with. We developed an interesting TV spot for them. Shot on location in Dubai, Amsterdam and Antwerp, the spot was directed by Stillking’s Wolfberg and the post was done in Prague.

The film is made up completely of stills. We shot more than 50,000 images using three photographers. Ok, we only ended up using a fraction of that, but the results are pretty interesting. We also treated the spot with a random blur that made the ships and containers look like little toys. All in all, it was an incredibly enjoyable trip and I’m very happy with the results.

Nice one Vince ... looks like moving shots!

I'll put this one on AdBlogArabia tomorrow, and mediaME's upcoming TV Commercial Gallery in a couple weeks!

Hey Vince,
Great work (as usual). Although, I feel too much VO mars the spot a bit. By the way, they don't look like stills at all. Very smooth and seamless. Good stuff, bro.
