That’s a wrap, or a Happy Meal!

Principal photography has concluded on all 6 spots for McDonalds. With a successful 3 day shoot coming to an end this week in LA, John had his director swag going, managing dozens of kids, video game characters, and dragons! He'd like to thank his amazing production crew, and all involved, for pulling off an unbelievable few days of filming. A special thanks to our DP Alex Disenhof for his Willis Reed performance in making this happen through injury. We couldn't have done it without you!

With 3 spots deep into visual effects finishing, and 3 more on deck, John will have his hands full through 2014 creating the magic and collaborating with all of the tie in partners. Look for these slick visual storytelling pieces to hit the national air come the new year!
