PROJECT LAUNCH: DeGroote School of Business

Another week, another launch!

For the past few months, Double Barrel has been working alongside the DeGroote School of Business – McMaster University~ helping them add some video to their fantastic new brand campaign, ‘Education With Purpose.’

Our resulting piece ~ this 1:40 cinematic trailer ~ premiered at their Accolades event last week in Toronto, before an audience of distinguished partners and alumni.

Shot by Tyler Tekatch & Christoph Benfey, music composed by Sasha Szlafarski, script by Kitestring’s Holly Gibson, edited by Taylor Heres, audio mixing & mastering by Hive Studios, cameo by Kristel Bulthuis. Proof that it really does take a village to make something great.

Thanks everyone!
