So, wear it loud and wear it proud, and let the State Forty Eight logo serve as a reminder to proclaim your passions but never forget where you came from.

A professional commercial was just what they needed to increase their brand equity in Arizona even more.

The Problem:

Their 12 Days of SFE sale was coming up and they had no video creative to run ads or drive awareness about the promotion. To help boost awareness to the upcoming sale they wanted to create a minute long advertisement to run right after black Friday. Being presented with this opportunity with only 10 days we needed to write a script, create storyboards, lockdown a location, cast male and female actors, and block out dates available to shoot.

  1. No script / just ideas
  2. No storyboards
  3. No actors

The Solution:

We provided a custom video package that includes full crew, full lighting setups, camera operator, assistant, set dressing, audio set-ups, that would make for a successful shoot day.


Before shooting we had to craft a story working in close collaboration with Nicohlas of SFE to create a script that was in line with his vision, after a couple different revisions and a run through from our copywriter we were able to craft a video outline showing some sample shots to match the script that was crafted after getting an idea of what we were trying to shoot we created a storyboard that matched exactly what we outlined in our video outline. After all storyboards were approved we worked with Nicohlas to find different actors to fill in the roles we wrote out for them.
