NEW WORK :: RumChata :: “Adventures”

September 7th, 2016

When we opened the script for RumChata Adventures, we never could have expected what was in store for us as we helped this small brand from Chicago go global. Launching in several countries worldwide, the client was looking for a visceral way to connect with local audiences in some of their larger international markets. Global Branding Officer and Director Charlie Maas sought out the local opinions of friends and colleagues on naturally beautiful locations that would immediately place viewers in their respective countries.

Our first stop was Mexico, where we journeyed to Tulum, taking advantage of its beautiful beaches, abundant sunshine and hidden cenotes. Shot entirely from a drone, we began with a sunrise on a private beach just south of downtown Tulum. Waiting for us there was an old wooden boat who’s shipwrecked hull had blended into the scenery of the landscape, adding to its mystique. From there we went into the jungle to fly into and around a cenote, a water cave which is a natural phenomenon for that part of the country.

After Mexico, the next logical destination is… Canada, of course. The Canadian Rockies have served most recently as the backdrop for The Revenant, where crews continue to recount the uncompromising production of the Oscar nominated film. We visited the same woods to shoot more drone footage of mature coniferous forests, majestic snow-capped peaks and crystal clear lakes.

Our furthest destination was the 12 Apostles in Victoria, Australia about three hours from Melbourne. The limestone structures have been battered by the ocean for millions of years leaving a majestic setting, perfectly captured by our drone.

For certain, it was an adventure. Enjoy.
