Commercials for 2010 shows exciting, expanded line of laser combat toys from Jada Toys’ Battle Machines.
The decision to return to CRM Studios for the upcoming product release was based on CRM’s exemplary work on the first spots for Battle Machines in 2009. Production will once again utilize CRM’s “all under one roof” capabilities strategy, which compliments the spots’ need for combining live-action with animation. CRM touts an award-winning animation department under its “script-to-screen” production company arrangement, as well as a complete production/post production team of 28+ professionals to help develop, shoot, edit, animate and finish any spot.
“We once again chose CRM Studios because of the commitment to excellence they demonstrated last year,” said Frank Tzeng, General Manager of Jada Toys. “We appreciate the time they spend to really learn the product before the spots are developed. That means we get a level of work that includes the nuances of what makes a breakthrough product line so special.”
The thirty-second spot, along with two fifteen-second spots, will air on children’s programming this fall. The commercials support Jada’s new second generation of Battle Machines-Laser Combat Tag R/C toy. The second-generation product line includes different licensed Ford F-350 and Chevy Silverado 3500HD stylized trucks with laser cannons mounted on each vehicle’s hood. The first to score three hits while outmaneuvering the other licensed, custom vehicle wins! The Battle Machines product line was the first of its kind to combine the thrill of RC racing with the strategy of laser combat tag.
“CRM has a reputation within the toy market to produce high-quality toy spots at a reasonable price,” said Steve Dunning, CEO of CRM Studios and commercial director of both this year’s and last year’s spots.
Matthew Golding, Vice President of Marketing and Product development for Jada said, “This is the second time we’ve worked with CRM because we knew we’d not only get more exciting footage on the screen, but also the most value for the budget. CRM knows how to deliver a great commercial—and we are eager to see the spot drive business when it hits TV this fall!”
