Sonic Union and Robert Broadhurst Escape into Adidas' Y-3 Campaign Film

Creative 309 Add to collection

Written and directed by Broadhurst, the story unfolds in a sleek, dystopian universe

Sonic Union and Robert Broadhurst Escape into Adidas' Y-3 Campaign Film

Sonic Union mix engineer Brian Goodheart reunites with director Robert Broadhurst to bring the futuristic aesthetic of the Adidas Y-3 Spring/Summer 2017 collection to life in a surreal new campaign film from Blackrose NYC. Written and directed by Broadhurst, the story unfolds in a sleek, dystopian universe as two protagonists face off against an oppressive surveillance regime. The artist Son Lux provides an eerie, dreamlike score that amplifies the artful mosaic of stylised, impressionistic scenes that showcase the brand’s futuristic sportswear, footwear and signature colour palette. 

You can view the campaign film below:

“The SS17 collection had a specific cinematic feeling that all I wanted to do was build a beautiful world around it and let it emanate this strange and hopefully entertaining story,” Noted director Robert Broadhurst. “I was incredibly lucky that Blackrose and Y-3 loved the concept and gave it so much support – that’s the greatest part of working with a forward-looking brand, especially as a new director. It was exciting to explore some of the contemporary anxieties that I find really enrich Yohji Yamamoto’s famous notion of ‘clothing as armour.’ And, as with all things sci-fi, the sound design and mix were particularly vital to the film. Brian worked his magic to elevate it beyond the high standard we had achieved the last time around and once again helped refine story through sound.” 

This is a recurring collaboration between Goodheart and Broadhurst, having previously collaborated on the recent Y-3 Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign film.
