Apple – Bounce

Commercials - VFX



Since Apple introduced AirPods a few years ago, the wireless white earbuds have
reached iconic status in popular culture, ranking at the top among the most memefied
products out there. But most importantly, bridging the gap between technology and
style. And with the arrival of the wireless charging case in 2019, the product
experience got even more untethered.
"Bounce" captures what it feels like to experience the extra burst of freedom provided
by the even-more-wireless new AirPods. In the film, the whole environment of a city
becomes a trampoline, turning a young man’s every day commute into a wonderful
musical experience.
In order to make the liberating feeling of the AirPods believable and real, we raised an
entire set of a city six foot above the ground, which allowed us to choreograph and
capture the performer’s moves in camera, without the help of VFX. An epical display
of technical prowess.
