Sector SPDRs ETFs - Breakdown

Commercial: https://vimeo.com/233448722

After winning a competitive pitch together with The Outpost, we joined forces in developing a TV campaign for Select Sector SPDRs, a family of exchange-traded funds.

The concept revolves around the knowledge that unfolds from the SPDRs portfolios, where books and pages unfold and build landscapes that are iconic to each sector.

The commercials are broadcast in the US.

It was a pleasure being able to shoot in a beautiful old library, but also uniquely challenging. Working in tight spaces, a custom rig for some of the aerial shots, building set elements aesthetically identical to the space and leaving no trace of us ever having been there. We also worked against a tight deadline to get everything done in one day.

To give a bit of insight into the extensive post production process we created this making of.
