Tin Caps in Full Motion!

Have you seen the Tin Caps commercial I scored a couple weeks ago? No?!? Truth be told, I haven’t actually seen it on TV yet either, simply because I just don’t watch that much TV. (I’ve got WAY too much music to write!) So if you’re like me and haven’t caught the commercial yet, or you are unfortunate enough not to live in the greater Fort Wayne area, then this post is for you!

Presenting, the Tin Caps!

This video comes courtesy of Derek over at Punch Films. As you can see by the visuals, he and his staff are VERY talented. It’s a real pleasure working with him. More on that later…

Thanks for tuning in. Let me know if you spot the spot on TV!

Much Metta,

  2. Happy Belated Birthday from another Betsy blog reader! I LOVE what you do for a living! My dad was director of the University of Florida marching band for 25 years, I literally grew up related to the “Pride of the Sunsine”. Marched piccolo in high school and college – alas always stuck in the back. Cheers!

    holy crap john, i mean i really liked the music, but now that i see it with the video – it is incredible – you should be very, very proud – awesome work!

  21. gail says:

    Well DONE John!!!! Now, the only thing that would have made this commercial better is if the team’s name was something more respectable, like, The Generals. For the love, TIN CAPS? REALLY?!!!! I loved the music though — it went so well with the edits in the clip!
