GATORADE - THE CAPTAIN

This is the oldest project I have on this site, but it still holds a special place in my portfolio. Fran is one of the most talented and interesting directors I have ever worked with. We started out together and shot countless of commercials and short form narrative projects together. 

Fran and I both love wide glass and this entire spot was shot on just two lenses: A 14mm and a 18mm Ultra Prime. 

There is no doubt that I would light a lot of it differently now, but what I care about above all is story and this spot is the strongest commercial story I was allowed to shoot yet.

It will stay on here until a new project can kick it off that throne.
