Manchester City stars’ film effort

Nissan challenged the players to work with the recently launched Next Generation Nissan Juke and create a teaser film. But they had to do it in one hour.

The finished result is a two and a half minute spot following the path of the film being made. From storyline and character creation to filming the action and car chase scenes – you have to watch this.


Quick title

Titling the film themselves, “A Little Bit Quick” the short follows the drama of two special agents chasing the evil Dark Illy.

Steve Howell, Creative Partner at Dark Horses, said: “Kevin, Kyle and Illy were fantastic to work with and really threw themselves into the concept and the production with classic City energy and intensity.

“The boys done good, to borrow a classic football phrase.”

A teaser appeared on 2 January with the full film going live across social media on the 9 January.

The campaign will run online, predominantly through social channels, for 2-3 weeks.
