It's not every day that you get to collaborate with the uber-talented and quite frankly hilarious Melissa McCarthy on her Directorial debut for the 90th Academy Awards ceremony, so we jumped at the opportunity with open arms! Drawing inspiration from the empowering and uplifting track "Bird Set Free" by Sia, this music driven spot starred the out of this world Keala Settle from the Award Winning "The Greatest Showman" and pop star in the making Dylan Conrique. In keeping with the theme of the Oscars ceremony this year and the Times Up movement, the spot tells a story of perseverance, self-confidence and belief in ones self against all odds.
Getting to work so closely with the Director and the talent in pre-production recording sessions, on set, and in post, really gave us the opportunity to support and nurture Melissa's vision for the spot featuring a killer arrangement of Sia's track along with the perfect dose of magical sound design to really help this inspiring film come to life. We are really proud of how it turned out!
