SANDMAN – Ram Trucks TRX
Pardon Our Dust.
The Sherpas recently teamed up with longtime friend and collaborator Renan Ozturk to shoot a commercial spot for the Ram Trucks TRX in a designated off-road area deep within the Utah desert.
The commercial was a big reveal, introducing the world to RAM’s new game-changing vehicle, so we found a location where the TRX could do what it does best.
We camped on-site, immersing ourselves in the incredible landscape and translating that connection into the final cut of the commercial.
Filmed in the spring 2020, this shoot was done shortly after the film industry got the green light to go back to work. Safely managing a crew of 60+ people, especially in such difficult terrain, was no easy task. But we stuck to the protocols, got it done, and everybody went home healthy.
We’re super proud of the way this one came together, and couldn’t have done it without the help from our amazing crew.
Thanks everyone! //
