Western Michigan University asked us to create a short video to show off their beautiful residence halls… so we made this instead.
Thankfully they liked it too!
WMU came to us with a request to showcase their residence halls, especially their newest building, Western Heights, in an effort to show incoming and transfer students their options for living on campus. We countered with an idea to create a narrative short film that takes the characters and the audience around Western's campus. Also, we love buddy comedies here at Rhino.
We filmed Epic Quest over two-and-a-half unseasonably warm November days on WMU's campus (we definitely lucked out on that one), and everyone in the film is a student. The score is original and was created for this project by Rhino's own Ben Lau.
