This commercial was a joy to produce and direct. The client wanted to feature middle-age people still performing at a high physical level. I was able to achieve this through a dramatic story in revealing this age group performing several activities.

I am a licensed Drone pilot and having a cinematic background gives me the best perspective when taking to the air. The skill and precision to fly a drone mixed with a cinematic approach makes for some amazing shots.
