Coming Soon

Land Beyond Expectations: Family

In this sequel to our initial short narrative ad for Northwest Iowa Development, we catch up with our protagonist as he adapts to life with his new family in Iowa. As with the original, I composed the music, co-directed, and co-shot this web spot with Paul David Benedict and Eric Allan, who starred in it. It was released in conjunction with another ad that focuses on improvements to the main character’s work life in Iowa.
