Starbucks "A Moment of Merry"

The holidays are here! I had the unique pleasure of directing this year's campaign for Starbucks. Below are three charming broadcast ads that celebrate the release of the iconic Starbucks holiday cup designs.

At The Mill, we combined Live-Action, CGI, and Motion Graphics to create this vibrant journey through the Starbucks "Merry Universe". Extra whip anyone?
