Working with executives at Trone Brand Energy, telecommunications company North State sought to promote their new fiber initiative at a level that would position them as a major player. To produce two :30 spots with spectacular production values, Trone and North State tapped the power of creative production company Wondersmith.
"In one 14 hour day, we shot two broadcast spots utilizing two custom sets," says Wondersmith EP Joe Murray. "The set design perfectly supported the tone the client wanted to achieve for each spot and left us ample negative space for visual effects in post."
"We absolutely love it when a client entrusts us with communication like this campaign," adds Wondersmith CD Thom Blackburn. "We visually articulated inspiration from the perspective of a child, where it starts small and grows infinitely - and that of an adult, where inspiration starts wide and narrows into something exact. This was a job made for Wondersmith."
