Western Michigan University
Go West was a theme designed by WMU to inspire students to challenge their conventions and push further into the unknown. We chose a cinematic film style, with tons of kinetic energy and forward motion. This was a subtle nod at literally "going west" into the sunset.
This spot won a Silver Communicator Award from the Academy of Interactive Visual Arts!
Filmed in Kalamazoo, MI.
