AlloyGator | Protect. Enhance. Customise.

AlloyGator, based in Redditch near Birmingham, are market leaders in on-vehicle wheel protection. Their patented product sits between the wheel and the tyre, both protecting the alloy wheel from damage and enhancing the appearance of the vehicle.

Forward working with AlloyGator to  create a commercial which showcases both sides of their product, demonstrating it in use on several vehicles in a number of challenging environments. We worked with the client to first develop the initial concept, create detailed storyboards and then used our technical expertise to bring the concept to life; filming in locations across the West Midlands and utilising drones and stabilised gimbals to create stunning footage of the product in use on several different vehicles.

We then combined this footage in post production with graphics, a bespoke music composition and high impact sound design to create the finished advert.

The commercial is featured on the home page of the new AlloyGator website and has been shared as part of a launch campaign across social media.
