Venables Bell & Partners, Director Tom Noakes "Storm the Court" For Reebok
Created by Venables Bell & Partners, Reebok’s “Sport the Unexpected” campaign kicks off with “Storm the Court,” a film featuring an unexpected, and seemingly uninvited guest who interrupts a pick-up basketball game--stopping people in their tracks. The film showcases the Reebok Aztrek Double, an all-new update to the brand’s original all-terrain adventure shoe from 1993.
Tom Noakes of PRETTYBIRD directed “Storm the Court” with music supervision and sound design from Barking Owl. The music track was “Prayer Hands” by A-Trak and YehMe2. Editor was Shane Reid of Exile.
