Top Spot of the Week: Director Noam Murro, TBWA\Chiat\Day, The Mill Go On The Hunt For Eastbay
Noam Murro of Biscuit directed this film for specialty athletic retailer Eastbay out of TBWA\Chiat\Day which commemorates National Running Day (June 6), designated to encourage everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go--what’s important is that you take part, have fun being active, and inspire others to join you.
Titled Be the Hunted, this striking and fast-paced CGI film follows a wily hare running fast and frantically through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, chased by a pack of hungry foxes nipping at its heels. The lesson learned is that in running, glory often goes to the hunted.
The film is running on the homepage of Eastbay’s website and all social channels. The Mill served as VFX house for Be the Hunted, providing color grading as well.
