RBC Training Ground

We had an incredible opportunity to partner with Bell Media and film an ad for RBC Training Ground - focusing on the mental health of the athletes they represent. Our team took on the challenge of creating two visually and emotionally resonant commercials. With a nimble but incredibly talented crew, we made the most of the athletes early morning training sessions. 


The amount of dedication these athletes have to their crafts is beyond impressive, it was truly an honor capturing them doing what they love, and showcasing a different side of their personalities as they opened up about the physical and mental challenges of being a professional athlete.
