Rhapsody "60 Days"Rhapsody commercial I shot and directed in San Francisco. The “Rhapsody 60 Days” integrated marketing spot’s purpose was to drive new users to Rhapsody’s two month free trial. This was done via a cross channel promotion which included: MTV, VH1, CMT, Comedy Central, BET, and Spike. This was a broad intended audience, which was a particular challenge since the spot needed to work on such a diverse channel platform. The spot was initially going to be produced in NYC, however a snowstorm facilitated the need to shoot in another picturesque city, and San Francisco was chosen for its obvious attributes. The spots budget was 125K, and time constraints made for a tight schedule, with only 1 week of prep, and a quick delivery date for all the channel versions. The initial creative brief entailed only time-lapse shots, of various locations, with the copy explaining the 60 Days campaign. This was significantly changed to incorporate a characters journey, through a day, listening to Rhapsody in various environs of San Francisco. Through the use of Motion Control, the original idea of time-lapse was kept, with the Rhapsody user character now being seen in real time, as the world around him is sped up. This gave a perfect visual metaphor for what a Rhapsody user can experience. The commercial was very successful, to the point of Rhapsody returned to MTV Integrated Marketing 6 months later, to run the promotion again.
