I was tasked with creating an interruptive and memorable advertisement for Kobalt’s new outdoor power equipment tool line. We had a relatively small budget so we pulled as many tricks as possible to get a big-budget look while at the same time cutting lots of corners…including painting dead grass green because naturally we filmed this in the middle of winter.
