SpecialGuest/Vinicius Costa: Zune HD


1st Ave Machine‘s colorful alter ego, SpecialGuest, presents a new spot for Zune HD. This spot is Vinicius Costa‘s commercial directorial debut with SpecialGuest, following his fantastic short film earlier this year.

From Vinicius: “For this spot I decided to represent high definition in a different way using light, contrast and colors.” No doubt! As with his other work, there’s endless playful, loving details lighting up the environment around them – hopping notes on the turntable, the mixing board faders amidst the vinyl records, the sonic mountains, the dimensionality of the other worlds through the Zune window, to name a few.
