Mighty Director Phil Brown recently completed a five-spot campaign for First National Bank, emphasizing the company's Omaha roots and regional pride. Shot in a natural, homespun style, the spots offer a panoramic view of all things Omaha, emphasizing the extent to which the bank has enmeshed itself into the community.

Heartbeat

is a wide-ranging montage of Omaha, panning across the city skyline, a local butcher, a firehouse, a theater, a little league game, and much more. A narrator complements the scenery: "Listen closely," it says, "and you will hear the heartbeat of a great city - history, culture, ambition. ... This is Omaha, and we're proud to be born and raised here."

Employees

offers a similarly wide-ranging journey, with a focus on the extraordinary efforts of First National employees in the city. Brown captures them interacting with customers, propped up outside of First National branches, and putting up a house for Habitat for Humanity. The narrator waxes about First National employees' outstanding commitment to its community.

"Our goal was to really capture the essence of Omaha, and for that, we had to spend some time in the city," noted Brown. "The entire crew had a great time, absorbing the passion of a great city so that it shined through in the campaign.

"A lot of fairy tales end with the chivalrous prince saving the damsel in distress," 'Beast' director Michael Pearce says. "We thought maybe we could start the movie there and we'll give it more of an ambiguous slant."
