THE SPOTS

VAN HOUTTE

Charleston

Trevor teamed up with the Van Houtte Master Roaster again to showcase another skillset…classic dance!  This spot resulted in both broadcast and social elements.

COOLSCULPTING

Metal Vibration Therapy

Trevor has been heavily involved in CoolSculpting’s “Cool/Not Cool” campaign, resulting in hundreds of deliverables.  This example shows why it’s not a great idea to try and lose unwanted fat through pulsating 80s rock.

MCDONALDS

Big Tasty

Masterful comedic use of slow motion (or lack thereof) showcase Trevor’s ability to use various film techniques to enhance or misdirect for comedic effect.

MICROSOFT

Dishes

A great combination of a relatable story with deft filmmaking and VFX skills make this spot featuring Microsoft’s AR platform a memorable one.

SHOCK TOP

Six Pack

This is a great example of Trevor’s work with hidden cameras/real people as well as working with puppetry and improvisation. Together they combine for hilarious results in this piece for Shock Top.

COOLSCULPTING

Roasted Core Wrap

Another piece from the “Cool/Not Cool” campaign, this highlights the extremes people will go to to get rid of a little extra fat.  Again, multiple media assets ultimately were created from this shoot, ranging from broadcast to Instagram stills.

BC DAIRY

Cop Car

Again using film techniques to enhance the story, Trevor tells this story in a single shot cop-car mount – showing it’s okay to never completely grow up!

VAN HOUTTE

The Vans

This spot showcases some of Trevor’s ability to capture beautiful cinematography and different visual styles. The result is a memorable film saluting all “Vans”.
