Nike, Skates

Nike skates past the competition in new spot graded by Ricky Gausis of MPC LA

Anyone who has watched a Seattles Seahawks game in the past few years know that quarterback Russell Wilson has set the bar for performance when it comes to speed and agility. That's why Nike called upon Hiro Murai to direct the spot that highlights the added benefits of the new Nike Alpha Menace cleats, designed by Wilson himself.

In this spot, Wilson moves leaps and bound beyond the Seahawks rivals in roller skates, the San Francisco 49ers, to score a touchdown. Color grading was done by Ricky Gausis of MPC LA, who has had the privilege of working with both Murai and Director of Photography Larkin Seiple on previous projects.
