The ad campaign, produced by Evil Twin co-founder Harri Mark and VPof production and development Doug Major, began airing nationally inFebruary and includes 5- to 60-second spots featuring The Fab 5 vampingto their theme song. The company used a combination of Avid Symphony,After Effects and Vegas/Sound Forge to produce the spots.
Despite the program’s mainstream success, creating a broadcastcampaign wasn’t easy, according to Mark. “The hardest part of doing aspot for The Fab 5 is the fear that they will show up in the middle ofthe night and makeover the spot…or at least ourwardrobe.”
