Mitsubishi “Total Eclipse Cross”

Our most adventurous stint outside of the office.

We raced the clock to reach a once in a lifetime moment, it was a doozy of a trip packed with unpredictable scenes along the way. We had not one, but two unparalleled jobs to bring to the table. One: capture totality during the eclipse. Two: showcase it while in the actual Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

We focused on craft and disappeared into the visually-pleasing backdrop of the very story we were constructing. In total, we survived and conquered thirty-six hours of on-site post-production, sixteen hours of filming, no sleep, and last but most importantly, one minute and thirty seconds of eclipse totality. An unforgettable life experience…caught on camera. This moment was documented through the very best language; adventure.
