J. Walter Thompson London teamed with RSA director Juriaan Booij on this hero film for single malt scotch whisky brand, The Macallan. The :90 is a fantastical visual metaphor that brings a crossroads decision to life--whether or not to take a leap of faith in order to succeed.

“Make The Call”--to risk falling in order to fly--was shot by John Mathieson, the twice Oscar-nominated cinematographer (Gladiator, The Phantom of the Opera), with visual effects by Absolute Post Production.

Paul Rizzello, J. Walter Thompson London creative director, said, “The pressure of a big decision often makes us hesitate just when success is within reach. We’re so afraid of getting it wrong, we end up avoiding those decisions altogether. This story is about someone who decides to go for it. He makes the call.”
