G-SHOCK vs. Earth

by Zenith Adventure Media· November 17, 2015· in · 0 comments
G-SHOCK VS. EARTH Multimedia Campaign In collaboration with Marcos Ferro The goal of this campaign was to come up with a creative "artistic" way to display the features of the 8 G-Shock's adventure watches, buy putting them to their limit on their "native" environment: being used by 8 top mexican athletes and artists on 8 different locations around Mexico, enhancing the main feature of each one of them. Its important to say that this was more “an artistic project” than a commercial project. The idea was not to be advertisement, but to work with Mexican elite athletes and artists while showing each watch capabilities.         Marcos Ferro (Adventure Photographer) was commissioned by the PR agency “Another Company” to create a transmedia project for the world famous watch brand “G-Shock”. When Marcos invited us to be part of this project, we never imagine how fun, and demanding, it was going to be. THE EXHIBITION Eight big format prints (1.20 x .80cm) were exhibited in “Another Gallery”, located in Mexico City, alongside with eight videos produced by Zenith Adventure Media. THE PROCESS We had 8 demanding photo/video productions in a very limited timeframe of less than 5 weeks. Between […]

LÍNEA DIRECTA Alpine Group Coverage & Promotion Image Campaign Linea Directa is a young alpine group that is redefining the way of doing Alpinism in the Mexico. They approached us for the first time before going to their one month Ice Climbing expedition to Ouray, Colorado. They wanted to create a powerful and integrated image to reach a larger and more focused audience, increasing the opportunities when looking for expedition sponsors.               The experience was quite fun and challenging, running, hiking and ice-climbing for a hole month, during which we had to overcome many challenges to get the project done on location, from logo redesigning and animation, two video edits, hundreds of pictures taken, and social-network managing.       Since then, our relation has only become stronger, working with them in many ways, from online presentations, to post-production edits Linea Directa was a breaking point for us, an amazing group of friends who's taken our media and athletic skills up to the very limit.
