The Trailer

One iPhone. Seven Cities. The unscripted story of an iPhone and its one-way trip around the world. We explore the journey of seven very different social influencers in seven very different cultures around the globe and find commonality through technology and style. We unite them with authenticity, diversity and passion.

Deadwood SD

Our journey begins with the intense focus of Bull Wrangler Nate Jestes in Deadwood, SD, as he goes into the arena of mayhem. Fighting bulls isn’t what he does… it’s who he is.

Assignment

Our objective was to capture the different lifestyles and cultures of seven unique individuals, while showing their shared interactions with the IPhone and their own personal Otterbox style. Oh sure, traveling around the world to shoot these films sounds like an opportunity of a lifetime… And it was! It checked off a few bucket list items along the way.

The Crew

Our team was lean and mean. The traveling crew consisted of our Creative Director, our DP, our Editor/DIT, our Line Producer and our Creative Comrades at Otterbox. We picked up a few local hands and our pre-chosen Influencer at each destination. We quickly scouted the area, ran through the objectives with the talent, and then rolled the cameras. The skillful eyes and hands of our team helped to capture the most exquisite moments and happy discoveries.

Challenge

But sometimes the best work comes out of the challenges in a project… And there were a couple of those too. For a shoot of this scope it would be nice to have bottomless pockets, but of course we needed to work within some logical budget constraints. We kept the crew lean and the schedule tight. Three shoot days – travel one day – three shoot days in the next location… and so on.

The Take Away


To sum up our experience with this project… Discovery. We successfully captured a “moment in the life” of several lives around the globe. We discovered how we are all connected, inspired and moved. And we are successfully Passing It On!.
