My Green-screen Shoot for the 2016 MIZUNO Campaign


I recently had the pleasure of producing a commercial spot "Just Wave Because" for Mizuno. For this and many other projects, Jodi Jones Studio partnered with the incredibly talented design studio, Big Studios of Sao Paulo, Brazil! They are simply the best at complex CGI.  For this project we had our casting and production in NYC, shooting the entire project on green-screen. I also had the privilege of working as DP with the uber talented film director, Caito Ortiz.

The team created a digital content video, print campaign also, social media and POS with the advertising agency 22Squared.

Here is the COMMERCIAL, along with the MAKING OF VIDEO below! Enjoy!

Waving. Some runners are into it. Some aren’t. But if you give it a shot, a wave can put good energy into the world and might just transform your run.
