DOP Stefan von Borbely c/o 1st UNIT and Director Matthias Zentner were once again on the road for an international production. This time, they filmed a commercial with Morgan Freeman for TURKISH AIRLINES above the clouds. The debut of the video was during the Super Bowl on 5 February.
“Narrated by his powerful voice, Morgan Freeman helps broaden our imagination right from an airline seat. Pampered in luxury and spoiled by world class care of Turkish Airlines, the beauty of the world is right at our fingertips. He takes us on a mind travel along with Turkish Airlines where we discover the bluest of waters to the greenest of meadows to the purest of air. And so, our imagination is not limited to just our TV screens. We urge you to come along on this captivating journey with us. Let Turkish Airlines and the presence of Morgan Freeman transport you to wherever your heart desires. Morgan´s voice is like music, deep, soft and with a strong harmony, as no instrument can have. Advertising can be poetry. So put on wings and lets venture to the unexplored. Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly. Widen your world,” says velvet Mediendesign, who produced the commercial.
“We not only fly to more countries worldwide than any other airline, we also strive to offer our passengers the best possible flight experience...,” M. Ilker Ayci from Turkish Airlines tells us about the spot.
The shoot took place in Los Angeles in less than ten hours with a team of 101 employees. The commercial is broadcast on 16 TV channels and by the largest media corporations in four continents. The advertising campaign with Morgan Freeman is shown in all countries to which Turkish Airlines flies. Turkish Airlines flies to more than 290 destinations in 117 countries with a fleet of 335 airplanes.
