Image placeholder title

chrome Editors Hal Honigsberg and Lance Pereira, collaborating with Psyop/Smuggler and Wunderman, just released a slate of :30s promoting Dell's exciting new products. The project showcases a myriad of challenging split-screens and an ever-changing mix of graphic and live-action footage.

Inspiron One

is an exhilarating perspective on Dell's Inspiron One Touch Screen. A high-speed cavalcade of images flashes by, sometimes with the screen split into three streaming bands, scrambling images of smiling bystanders. The screen - which often features vibrant graphic images - splits in half or into quads as the focus shifts from potential Dell users to the slick computers themselves.

Inspiron R

is a narrator-driven adventure emphasizing Dell's affordable Inspiron 15R laptop and tremendous customer support. The spot skips from triple-screen, scrolling images of customers to crazy fantastical graphic worlds populated with planet-sized monsters to a live-action laptop covered in miniature laborers maintaining the machine.

"With excellent footage from Psyop/Smuggler, we knew that chrome could help execute our creative vision of mixing live action footage and graphic elements into a compelling spot," noted Wunderman CD Nick Moore. "We wanted the spots to have a unique perspective editorially-speaking, and with Hal and Lance's help, the process was seamless."
