Launching a phone (with a jetpack and scooter stunts)

Marlin PR had an interesting idea for launching a new smartphone in the UK. What if we asked a friend of theirs (the founder and chief test pilot of a jet suit company) to take part in a race? Working with Marlin, I produced, directed and edited a mini film that showed the 'race' between the jet suit and a world freestyle scooter champion - while showing off the phone's impressive photo and video capabilities.
