FLATRATE


TV COMMERCIAL CAMPAIGN

ART DIRECTION + STORYBOARDING + SHOOT + EDIT + COLOR GRADING


COUNTDOWN TV:60

During the meeting with FlatRate, the client's positive view and passion for providing the perfect moves were apparent to us. We learnt that moving, especially around New York City, is not a source of fear and frustration. Moving day should be and is, in fact, a happy day. This led us to create a series of commercials that echoes the same sentiment.

The first spot to air is a :60 second piece called “Countdown” which shows vignettes of people about to have babies, looking for new houses on iPads in the middle of the night and finding last minute treasures under sofa cushions. We also see FlatRate movers seamlessly setting the stage, as if a NASA crew would roll up carpets and protect drywall with corner protectors. This is all quietly done to audio lifted from the Apollo 11 launch. The commercial ends with two simple and tasteful art cards which say, “Thanks for letting us be part of your journey – wherever you go.” The tagline is FlatRate. Keep Moving Forward.
