Mini-Coopers & Micro-Climates

What do mini-coopers & micro-climates have in common?

....a hilariously chaotic production with Tallgrass Pictures!

Earlier this year, we shot a spot called “Climate Change” - a wacky concoction conceived by creative directors (and TGP friends) Robert Borges and Brad Copeland. In it, we find two scientists on a thrilling ride in a bright, red Mini.

For this shoot, the Tallgrass team took a little trip into the mountains of Julian, CA. Our action packed day included taking over Sunrise Highway with corrupt cops and then off-roading at Lake Cuyamaca (yes, in the mini cooper). We even sprinkled in some movie magic, literally - with a homemade rain machine! The rangers pumped water from the lake into the machine and created a whole new stormy scene for us - no rain dance needed - just PVC pipes and a little elbow grease.

We brought some devious fun to Julian mountains! Check out the full video below:

Living the Mini-Life... APRIL FOOLS!

I wish these were real…
"Taking full advantage of April Fools’ Day as well was car brand MINI. The company ‘released’ camping solutions for MINI drivers, called the “Cowley Caravan” and “Swindon Roof Top Tent”, and a boating vehicle called “Mini Cooper Yachtsman”."
