Shutterstock: Taken Down

Shutterstock came to us looking to create their first narrative commercial. When they presented us with the rough concept we knew we needed to figure out how to tell a really big story in a way that was producible in the middle of a pandemic. Through a mix of safe and smart on-location work, remote capture around the country (and Paris!) and plenty of VFX it was truly a modern day production.
