Creation of an ad to support Threadless Select winter 2012. We carried a full set of drums up a narrow ladder then through an even narrower hole to a roof with a great view of the Chicago skyline. It took us an hour to film multiple takes of Marcus Anthony Johnson as he played the drums. The shoot was so short so that we wouldn’t get in trouble from noise or just being somewhere where we weren't supposed to be. I then took the best audio takes and edited it down to fit within 30 seconds. I had to fake about 75% of the shots to match his was playing with the audio.
