Timber collaborated with the team at Leo Burnett and Believe Media on the new campaign for American automaker GMC. Stadiums, crowds, cars, animation and design came together in the campaign featuring San Francisco Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt. The campaign promotes the brand’s relentless attention to detail. As the spot relates, not every pitcher can throw a 95 MPH fastball under the lights of AT&T Park and not every automaker can create the professional performance of a GMC. Precision can be the difference between winning and losing, or the element that separates ordinary from a cut above.  For Timber, accuracy and precision were also a driving force for the campaign – crowd replication, design and visual effects were carefully crafted to support the narrative and campaign theme.
