AkamaiThe Akamai Experience (Anthem)

Directed by Chris Finn, Produced by Rich Kaylor, Production by Scholar, Agency is Doremus, Shot in Colombia
NXT PRV

Filmed during the global pandemic, The Akamai Experience represented the strength of the Akamai technology.

Last minutes changes are the hallmark of production, especially during COVID times, when lockdowns and travel restrictions could change at any minute. This is when our years of experience came in handy.

3 athletes, 3 build sets and a 8.000m2 warehouse were the epicenter of our second 100% remote shoot. Colombia has been at the forefront of innovations when it comes to remote productions. Right when the pandemic started, a team of programmers along with producers and the support of Loma Rental, one of Colombia’s leading camera rental houses, developed a simple yet very professional platform to facilitate remote shoots.

The system rapidly became an international reference, competing against the overly expensive limited Qtakes, allowing internal discussions while having a flawless HQ feed of the set cameras.

Location scouting was extensive, but we managed to find one that served as a 3-set location, and along with our amazing art department that pulled in long hours, the set builds were completed right on time for the shoot.
