We have been partners with System76 since the summer 0f 2015, creating all of their video content. They came to us with a crazy idea. Shoot a long commercial featuring a Penguin (Linux Mascot) on the run. The idea was to create a hashtag, that when tweeted enough would unlock another part of the series. Once the series had all aired online, it would unlock their 4th of July sales.
This project included a tight budget, a short timeline, multiple locations, stunts and VFX. System76 has always been deeply involved with all of their video projects. Splitting pre-production between them and us helped us prepare for the 6-day shoot. We worked with them to help write and direct the project, as well as working very closely on the editing.
The end result is a completed 5-minute short film that is funny, action-packed and effective in their branding. This video helped drive their sales during a usually slow time of year. When you combine a great idea, great marketing, and perfect execution, videos of all types can help your business.
