Driving passions: The Bigger Picture and director Michael Bernard explore what drives people, both emotionally and literally, in the docu series “Land Rover: Well Storied” via agency Spark44. Traversing the country over a five-month period, Spark44 and The Bigger Picture unearthed authentic human stories, lovingly told, that relate perspectives on passion. The five-part series featuring Land Rover owners who find deep appreciation for their vehicles’ ability to take them where they need and want to be.
Director Michael Bernard evokes skill for blending striking imagery rendered with a photographer’s eye and an approachable mastery of narrative. To help accomplish this sense of intimacy blended with an aesthetic of style and grace, Bernard employed a Canon 1DX MK2 for both the films and accompanying print campaign. At ease with a small team of agency and production, the interview subjects opened their doors and hearts to reveal how interests connect to something bigger – deeply connected family, a bold legacy, or quiet reverence.
