We were approached directly by Aberdeen Asset Management to write and direct two adverts to air during the US open golf tournament in the states each year.
Our main brief from Aberdeen was to tell stories that capture the human spirit, explore ideas of dedication, passion and attention to detail but most of all to be honest.
We wrote two ideas focusing on the unsung heroes of the golf course - the Greenkeeper and the Caddy. For authenticity we wanted to work with the real people, not actors.
Working with a real caddy and also the head greenkeeper at the Royal Aberdeen golf course, we managed to make two lovely films that evolved the more time we spent with our subjects. Everything you see is honest and uncontrived. How refreshing
