What Producing a Commercial Really Looks Like

What Producing a Commercial Really Looks Like

Have you ever had a quick-turnaround project that felt daunting at the time, but you just KNEW it was going to all work out in the end?

In this episode, Shelby and Jon (Director of Content and co-host for the next couple episodes) share their journey of producing a commercial for the Iowa Corn CyHawk game from ideation to production to execution.

Shelby and Jon break it all down (like how the hero of the day was our sprinter van) and one thing that was reiterated from this project is that simplicity can be effective.

You’ll hear stories about commercial concepts our creative team developed, Shelby almost getting hit by a minivan in the Kwik Star parking lot, and how we were able to deliver the final product to the client with a short deadline.

It’s important to note that even with the Iowa Hawkeyes taking home the Iowa Corn CyHawk trophy on the gridiron, we all win when we fuel up with Unleaded 88.
