Royale's Nike Hyperdunk+ Launch Spot "Evolve"
Publicity Release Posted: July 10, 2012 09:30:05 EST
Studio Also Wins PromaxBDA Global Gold and North America Silver for Animated Short "Impossible Present;" Celebrates 5th AnniversaryLOS ANGELES
, July 10, 2012 | SHOOT Publicity Wire | --- Motion design & production studio Royale
was recently tapped by Nike to create a launch spot for the new Nike Lunar Hyperdunk 2012+ shoe, which premiered during Game 5 of the NBA Finals and will air globally. The revolutionary footwear comes equipped with a set of sensors that allows players to measure advanced performance metrics like reaction time and vertical leap.
Featuring the tagline "Game On, World," "Evolve
" is an exhilarating :30 glimpse into the technology that goes into this new basketball powerhouse of a shoe. A video game controller deconstructs and begins to reconfigure, its pieces and panels moving intelligently and dynamically. Flywire elements electrify the side of the Hyperdunk 2012+, weaving up and tightening the sidewall of the shoe. Lunarlon cushioning organically evolves from a flat surface, providing an extra layer of support and adding to the semi-transparent, always-active sensors inside the sole. The shoe's ability to elevate a player's experience with the sport becomes visually synonymous with its vertical leap, as it soars into the air.Click here

The Nike spot launches on the heels of Royale
's 5th anniversary, and yet another big showing at PromaxBDA 2012. Royale
won a Global Gold and North America Silver for "Impossible Present

" marks another successful collaboration with longstanding client Nike, a relationship that spans several years and numerous projects together. For this spot, Royale
was tasked with highlighting the various aesthetic elements new to the Hyperdunk 2012+, as well as the sensors.
"It was important to capture the benefit of everything together, as one exceptional unit that can enhance your game," says Brien Holman, Royale
Partner/Creative Director. "When Nike approached us about this launch spot, we jumped at the opportunity to partner with them again. We crafted a fully CG spot highlighting the Hyperdunk's innovative technology that unites real-life competitive gaming and social media."
"As the flagship product, we had to make the spot exciting, robust and high-tech to emphasize how the shoe will revolutionize and evolve the sport of basketball," concludes Jayson Whitmore, Royale
Partner/Creative Director. "This project was not only creatively rewarding, but it also reinforces the trust given to us by the client." Credits
