This 45 second TV commercial, which was broadcast across the US, shows a typical day at work for Columbia Sportswear: exploring the great outdoors and the mountains.

Enjoy the outdoors longer

North agency, based in Portland, Oregon, hired us as well as a few other production companies around the world to shoot epic footage in our favorite alpine spots. We scouted ridges of the Jura Vaudois, a glacier in the Valais region and the Alpes Fribourgeoises to deliver this fun and action-packed edit.
