Five Passionate Entrepreneurs Illustrate ‘Make Every Second Count’ with Scion Vehicles
“We began telling the story of Scion’s history and core beliefs; now we’ve given the stage to individuals who embody that same passionate spirit in the ‘Make Every Second Count’ campaign,” said Doug Murtha, Scion vice president. “By showing how Scion fits into real lives and real goals, we shine a spotlight on the brand’s unique approach to empower its customers.”
The five people featured were each given a handheld video camera and a Scion vehicle for two weeks. After beginning to film their daily activities, they worked with award-winning documentary filmmaker Doug Pray (Hype, Art & Copy) for suggestions and content. From the authentic content, Pray and Scion created three national broadcast spots and five, online mini documentaries for the Scion YouTube channel.
The broadcast spots are built from one-second video segments of each participant’s story, passion and Scion experience. As the five individuals demonstrate dedication to pursuing dreams and careers, the campaign concept “Make Every Second Count” was born.
The participants were:
- Bryant Terry – an Oakland, Calif., chef, author and activist – driving the iQ
- Travis Hayes Busse – a San Francisco music promoter, talent buyer and manager – driving the tC
- Daniel Farahirad – a Los Angeles bicycling activist and retailer – driving the xB
- Levi Maestro – a Los Angeles filmmaker, entrepreneur and web personality – driving the FR-S
- Lisa Nativo – a Los Angeles food truck founder and owner – driving the xD
“I truly enjoyed working with these personalities and helping them film themselves in spontaneous one-second shots that captured their lives and a larger story,” Pray said of directing the project. “I’ve always been impressed by the magnitude of Scion’s support for the creative community in the 10 years I’ve worked with the brand. This project is no different with the broader pursuits featured in this campaign.”
