I was commissioned by Mars Hill Church in Seattle to make a 1 minute promo for their upcoming student series titled "Make War". They wanted to have the visual of a UFC fighter training for the fight while the fighter talked about what it takes to prepare for war in VO. They wanted the piece to be aggressive, powerful and inspirational to pump up the students for what they were going to learn in the series.
They had a pretty tight deadline with only about a week and a half to get it all done from pre-pro, writing, casting, location scouting, shooting and editing. It was a challenge that I gladly accepted and accomplished.
