Project: Pepsi Crop Circle

Client: Urban Plough,Mekanism, Pepsi

Approached by local artist, Matthew Moore just weeks before Super Bowl XLIX, we worked with Urban Plough Arts to document the process of creating a Pepsi Logo in a field of rye grass. Our team used multiple tools and hardware including a drone, helicopter, GoPro and steady cams in order to document the process and the final result. The circle itself was mapped out and then carved into the crop by hand. To accomplish this, Matt used a combination of a scythe and a string trimmer. What footage we handed of the the client was used for Pepsi's social media campaign, which we saw little of. So, we decided to created our own video from all the footage we shot. This is it!
