On June 22-23, we facilitated permitting for filming a product launch with a major motorcycle company to premiere the new electric motorcycle model (the first of its kind). The project came to life on NYC’s most iconic thoroughfares, including the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Using our film permitting and logistics capabilities, we coordinated a 55-minute film shoot of the motorcycles traveling across the bridges, starting in Brooklyn and ending in Manhattan.
The bridges created inspiring and breathtaking catwalks for these revolutionary and quiet new motorcycle prototypes. B-roll of the picturesque city skyline combined with footage of the bikes, brought a carefree feeling to the viewer, and captured the true essence of the company’s culture of freedom and self-expression. The footage also incorporates close-ups of the motorcycles to provide customers a detailed and exclusive look at the new technology.
In addition to footage taken on the bridges, our film permitting and logistics team secured a helicopter and videographer to capture the journey across each bridge from a birds-eye view in HD quality. This provided a diversity of shots, enhancing to the already breathtaking imagery of NYC.
Additionally, our event permitting team secured the street permits to close the lanes around the company’s flagship dealership in lower Manhattan for a product launch reception and by-invitation-only test-drives of the new motorcycles.
This project was unique to us as there are very few companies that have the breadth and depth of experience to coordinate such an ambitious undertaking in America’s busiest city. The impact of the event will continue to live on every time someone views the content on the web.
Generating exclusive content is critical for brands to gain recognition in today’s modern digital age. We have the ability to facilitate the creation of strong and engaging content in major cities and iconic locations across the USA.
