Director and Principal, Seth Epstein, shot this incredibly moving and inspirational brand film for Ahnu, the Bay Area-based providers of originally engineered performance shoes. The film follows ultra-endurance hiker, Trevor Thomas, on one of his challenging, long-distance hikes -- revealing his unique story along the way.
“We engaged Stardust for one simple reason, their unique ability to capture a true and authentic moment and translate it into inspiring digital content,” says Anders Bergstrom, Marketing Manager for Deckers, Ahnu’s parent company, and Co-Creative Director on the film. “The Ahnu brand had been working with Trevor Thomas for some time, but had not yet captured the emotional essence and impact that an incredible person like Trevor can have on a brand and its core business. Seth, Dex, and the Stardust team saw the potential and brought out what is true and inspiring in Trevor's story – all the while delivering on the Ahnu brand's promise to ‘walk new ground.’"
