Bully is an award-winning spec commercial shot for a competition promoting the King Kong ride at Universal Studios California.
The spot tells the story of a self-proclaimed “big dog” picking on a neighborhood kid and then receiving his comeuppance in the form of a two-ton ape monster.
As you sift through the raw footage, you’ll notice that the entire commercial contains only one line of dialogue. This makes editing Bully a great exercise in visual storytelling. Choose the best performances from multiple takes and cut them together to build the moment when karma catches up with our bully using only a few spoken words.
