The Breif:

Version2 provides both the editorial and the design/effects in this split screen spot for Optimum. Editor Vito DeSario does double duty as he cuts a side by side shot of two network providers- Optimum and the other guys. Creative Director Kieran Walsh and Tim Farrell supply clever effects as we see how Optimum gives superior customer service and provides its clients with more than enough bandwidth to support their business. The two shots give us a simultaneous glimpse into how a successful company creates clout, and how the others fall short.
