Directed by Lewis Gourlay for Eyebolls, this spot for ‘Scotland Is Now’ was created to highlight Scottish innovation in everyday life. The agency brief was to make ‘moments in time’ - freeze framing the action to highlight the various inventions. The creative response was to use a high speed (Phantom), camera to slow time, almost to a standstill while keeping some motion in frame.
