Return Of The Goat II

  • Writing Director’s Creative Interpretation

ROTG 2 is one of those rare occasions when a small brand goes all-in on a marketing campaign. The result is a cinematic short that neatly taps that sweet spot between playful genre homage and clever, entertaining storytelling. The fact that this film was made to advertise something as niche as the launch of a new mountain bike, makes it even more impressive.

Otto Bathhurst brought his Hollywood pedigree to the table to elevate this into something that feels like a genuine cinematic trailer. Pure ‘B movie’ in all the best ways, it’s bursting with tension and build up, high octane action sequences, jump scares and an impressive cameo from Mads Mikkelsen. All of the above made working with Otto and Smuggler on writing the treatment a genuine pleasure and a great learning experience.
