Cactus and the Denver Zoo came to Spillt and Coupe to help bring to life their amazing illustrative campaign for Denver Zoo's new $50 million expansion of the Toyota Elephant Passage. We were inspired to compose an original music piece for this visually delicious spot.
Radar Sport Sensor is a Denver-based start up company with a brilliant product, but no public image. (Their in-helmet technology senses when you crash & hit your head, then texts your emergency contacts and EMS your GPS coordinates & medical info using your smartphone). They approached freelance producer Cyndi Ortiz (co2 creative, llc) to concept, write and execute an image spot to drive the public to their website to learn more about the product, and garner interest from potential investors. The only caveat was an insanely low budget and tight turnaround that would make most people point and laugh — or run away screaming.
Luckily, the crew involved saw it as an opportunity to work with friends and stretch their creative muscles for a product they believe in and would use themselves. The group pooled their resources, cashed in favors, found friends willing to jump off trampolines into foam pits for free — and then made it happen. Image Brew shot the spot, while AJ Koch directed and edited. Freed laid down the graphics and Coupe handled all things audio. The spot proves that for the right client and the right creative team, this Denver/Boulder community can really pull off the impossible.
This fun little video also earned our team two bronze Telly Awards for "Best Use of Graphics" and "Best Online Sports Commercial."
