In this 60 second spot for Keep A Child Alive, we followed marathoner Duane McLaughlin through the five boroughs to celebrate his fifth year running for KCA. Our objective was to capture the struggle of 26.2 and the undying perseverance and determination need to tackle it. We were able to connect with the streets of New York by capturing iconic views from each of the five boroughs and making the audience understand the plight of the urban runner. The phrase "You Got This" is derived from the incredibly motivational spirit of running culture. The cameos from local legends Alicia Keys & Carmelo Anthony grounds the video even deeper into its NYC roots.

In the spirit of supporting the importance of education, we take an intimate look at recording artist and record producer Kasseem "Swizz Beats" Dean preparing to begin his journey at Harvard Business School. By featuring this critical step in his educational career, we aimed for the audience to connect with Swizz on a personal level. One in which viewers can reflect their own daily hustle, and thus be reminded that they too are capable of high-level achievement. This piece not only celebrates Swizz's personal success of becoming a student at Harvard, but also serves as a vessel of inspiration towards becoming one's greatest version of themselves.
In the spring of 2014 Co-Founder Luke Wright partnered with mentor and honorary member of Timeless Eye, Rik Cordero, to create a short film for Green Label that would inspire young creators to pursue their dreams. The outcome was "No Regrets" a short featuring Joey Bada$$ that shows his future self traveling back in time to key moments in his life. We were able to humanize Joey by showing the inescapable struggle of success and tore down the walls that separated the young man from the rap star.
In Early 2014, legendary Hip-Hop Music Video Director, Rik Cordero, was tasked with telling the coming to age tale of the rap trio, Migos. To create a story that was not only authentic but relatable to city kids outside of Atlanta, Rik hired Co-Founder of Timeless Eye, Luke Wright, to write a story that would allow audiences to feel what it's like to be a black man trying to make it out of the ghetto. In the end, the Trap Musical 'Bando' was born. The 17 minute short film portrays the struggles of making it out of the hood, as well as the glory once you've made it. The objective was to show Migos in a light that you wouldn't see from their typical music videos.
