VIDEO: Sherwin Williams takes hawking paint to a new otherwordly level

Sherwin Williams "Epiphany"

There is much more to a new 30-second ad for Sherwin Williams' Emerald paint than meets the eye. The company has been headquartered in Cleveland since 1866, but this effort is bit more technical than the longstanding "cover the earth" directive.

From Angela Natividad for Adweek:

The ad, dubbed “Epiphany,” uses only real Emerald paint. It was made possible with help from a robot arm called Spike, whose precision guidance system helped control camera movement at high rates of speed, even underwater. A Phantom camera, mounted to Spike, shot footage at 900 to 4,000 frames per second, enabling you to see colors splashing together, and creating gorgeous shapes and psychedelic combinations that the human eye can appreciate.

Production buffs will want to read the entire article. Now view the ad for yourself:
