Asus Gamers Republic

December 2010 ––
This internet spot for the Asus Gamers Republic was the bottle-breaking Black Swamp collaboration under the direction of the incredibly talented Nicolas Losq. The Swans unwavering commitment to each other was clearly evident as they conceived, shot and executed the piece within a 3 week timeframe, equipped with a post team of five mighty bastards. Munko was the design director on the project, and got the mouse wet n' warm as the lead compositor, editor, and colorist. A fine first effort from the Swamp Attack.

Looking to appeal to gamers, the Swans created a story and accompanying visuals set in a sci-fi genre. ASUS is a unique and interesting brand in that they create top-of-their class gaming machines, but unfortunately don’t have the brand recognition many of their competitors do. Being a big gamer himself, Nick Losq jumped on the opportunity to lead the team in not only showcasing these beastly gaming laptops, but further expose and enhance the brand to the public with a mind-blowing visual presentation.
