"Instinct Fast" creatively reinforces Under Armour's performance training platform by capitalizing on the company's new multi-year partnership agreement with Reyes and showing him achieving the impossible: stealing two bases on one pitch. In 2008, Reyes broke the Mets' all-time record for stolen bases and achieved his first 200-hit season. UA's creatives came to us with the idea of Jose moving faster than everyone else in the film and we helped bring the story to life. By creating scenes with two distinctly different frame rates, we brought the idea of battle into the story where both Jose and the pitcher had their fingers on the trigger. You see it in their eyes and in their body language. We wanted to remove every extraneous detail out the scene in order to focus attention on the unfolding drama. No bleachers, no fans, no scoreboard, only the moment. When a person is focused like this, instincts take over.
