“When we feel passionate about our work, we can do anything.” This statement is one of the things we love most about David Westphal. He brings this level of enthusiasm to every single project, including his most recent for Subaru. When the creative team approached David they shared a comp they were really jazzed about, a beautiful café with floor to ceiling windows overlooking an office park and framing the sleek new Levorg parked outside.
David wanted to bring this exact idea to life for the agency and client but he and his location scout could not find a match they felt was close enough to the vision. This sent David into creative problem solving mode, a challenge he takes on with excitement and gusto, and what he came up with took the production to a whole new level all while staying in same budget. “We took the location fees and built from scratch a cafe that matched the dimensions of the comp in the plaza of a really cool business park,” explains David, “and the results speak for themselves.” They certainly do.
Looking at the comp and the final image was an exciting moment for everyone. David and his team not only matched the vision, they exceeded the expectations of everyone involved. “It’s amazing what we can accomplish and what obstacles we can overcome to create successful images,” says David, “and it’s a real thrill of the job.”
