Incredible 30-Second Safari Spot from Sherwin-Williams took 5,600 Hours and 24 Artists to Produce

Sherwin-Williams has another installment of the “Color Chips” campaign, which transports you into an African jungle alive with bright, colorful animal life riding on the tagline “Where will color take you?”

Created by McKinney along with Buck Studios, the work comprises nearly 30,000 paint chips and was worked on by 24 production artists putting in a total of 5,600 hours to make a magical 30 second creation.


“We know people aren’t inspired by paint itself. What people really care about is the transformation a coat of paint can provide,” says Jonathan Cude, chief creative officer at McKinney in AdWeek. “Our worlds of color chips are about inspiring you with the possibilities for your home.”

My home often looks like a jungle, so I’m halfway there.
