In May of 2014, uNu (a San Francisco based company) hired Sidecar Productions to create, write, and produce a 30 second low-budget commercial to be aired at a Live 105 Bay Area concert event. The commercial had to be written, filmed, and edited within two weeks of signing the agreement. Screen replacements needed to be added when the product arrived and it was not camera-ready but our in-house staff was able to solve the problem with After Effects and Mocha. Within a week we had our script and began the pre-production process. Actors, equipment, locations, crew, and catering had to be quickly assembled with a delivery date only a week away.
Production designer, Bryan Decker, was able to use a majority of the furniture found at the location. By adding plants, a slider and some great soft lighting by DP Donnie Eastman, the shoot was dynamic and colorful. Here is the result:
After completing the 30 second commercial spot, the client asked us to create a 60 second overview. This video was created to inform customers about the UltraPak when they visited the product’s website. Sidecar wrote, directed and produced the following 60 second and 30 second spots.
