Client: Western Michigan University
Project: On Game Day We Wear Gold
For this video we channeled our inner "Mean Girl." We were so stoked when WMU approached us with an idea to parody one of our favorite movies to help promote the school's Game Day shirts, the sales of which benefited an emergency fund for students. Good cause + cult classic? Done and done.
We recreated two scenes from Mean Girls -- almost shot-for-shot -- and filmed it all in one day on WMU's campus. Special thanks to our actors (they were all Western students or staff) and the university's president, Dr. John Dunn!
Filmed on the WMU Campus in Kalamazoo, MI on Black Magic Cinema Cam.
