McDonald's "Episode 1: Paroled" [SPEC SPOT]
The 60-second short spec film was directed by Whiskey Tongue (directing duo Chris Allen Williams & Matthew West) who are also the principal partners of Mad Box Post. Along with Max Fischer, Director of Photography, they led a team of excited and determined crew through one ambitious and grueling day of filming which included a Porsche chase car, stunt driving work, and a blend of live action, animation and visual effects. The spot was concepted and created by Brett Landry and Brian Engleman, two rogue creatives, determined to bring a script they loved to the screen. Williams approached them a year prior to collaborate on the spot, expanding on their ideas to give it a longer, more cinematic feel.
"Whiskey Tongue has put together this McDonald's ad. It's exciting, gritty, fun and totally gorgeous to look at."
