Iconic DP Kaminski turn to Timber for Coors VFX

The Timber team collaborated with legendary Director/DP Janusz Kaminski (Saving Private Ryan, The Post, Schindler’s List) and Chicago-based creative agency Mekanism on the new Coors Banquet campaign. The series of black-and-white vignettes depict the reasons why Coors Banquet has been “Stolen, smuggled & sought after since 1873.”

And it’s Reel 360’s Reel Ad of the Week.

The award-winning Timber team provided visual effects and post-production on the new three-spot campaign, with Paul Martinez of Arcade as Editor.
