Mad Hat Teases Black Panther

Editor: Tricia Carey // Sound Design: Soundbyte

"Kickass film, kickass clients."

That's what our senior editor, Tricia Carey had to say regarding working on this trailer for Black Panther. Georgia-filmed Black Panther topped $1.1 billion worldwide earlier this week, and we had the opportunity to create a TNT trailer for the celebrated film. “The Turner creatives are such passionate, talented people." Tricia added.

And behind every great video is a great sound team. The original rhythmic track that drives this spot was composed by our friends at Soundbyte, who made this spot’s sound mix extra special.


Kadunks Alive


Bringing Kadunks to life from shoot to finish.

Back by demand - sour faces on the big screen. Just like the last campaign, we did it all from shoot to finish and brought Kadunks’ sweet gummies and sour goo to life before our eyes. But this time, we added an unexpected twist of animation over live action.

Without futher ado...

Ruffling Feathers with RaceTrac


What’s better than grown adults acting ridiculous in public? Grown adults acting ridiculous in giant bird costumes in public.

And of course, as you probably guessed, Mad Hat’s DP Misha Mazor and his team captured it all on camera. We soared through this shoot with RaceTrac to bring their Early Bird concepts to life, and we believe the results will really "ruffle your feathers."

Some families play board games for fun. Director Sean Brown's family, on the other hand, spends the weekends making films. Check out the commercial below for Smart Stop Self Storage which features some of our favorite kids to see in the office, Addy and Tucker. Mad Hat's own Sean Brown created this thirty seconds of joy in just one weekend (with the help of some other dedicated Mad Hatters).


Mad Hat is Happy to Welcome...
