2019 Company Feature: z2

We’ll continue to feature some of this year’s most noteworthy companies.

Location: Waukesha, WI
Title of Entry: “Addy Awards Video”
Category: Video Production | Video 

If you’ve ever been involved with the Addy Awards, you know someone gets tasked with creating the promotion and themed materials each year. It’s no small task and proves to be a big challenge to do something new, but it is also a great opportunity to showcase your creativity, which z2 has done expertly. As long-time Addy participants and supporters, this video knocked our socks off.

We had to know more — so we asked. It turns out z2 put out an all-call audition out via Facebook for kids age 10-14. They ended up with 26 kids (and one dog) who volunteered for the project – no paid actors. But they did throw them a pizza party for everyone.

This particular video was the intro to the ADDY Awards ceremony. They also filmed 3 vignettes/breakers for the ceremony during the same shoot which you can view in the embed below.

z2 filmed the entire video on a RED Dragon, DJI Mavic Drone in one 12-hour day at three sets/locations, including an old dead-end road. They purchased two old soapbox cars and repainted them to fit the story. And sourced a bunch of retro cars, clothing, and props to make the film feel like it was in the 70’s ala “The Bad News Bears” or “The Sandlot” — two amazing films if you ask us.

All in all, z2 Marketing is a standout submission and we’re so pleased to have creative experts like them involved in our competitions.
