These are just some of the perks you get when you book a great fitness commercial; travel, stunning views, a good workout, and lots of smiles! Check out Raquel’s latest commercial for Reebok.
It’s great when we get to pair up talent with their passion for a commercial of this caliber. Raquel is a professional runner having had qualified for the Olympic Trials so jobs like these are a DREAM. This particular job required a flight to Salt Lake City and a drive out to a small town called Hanksville, UT. This was shot in two days and we love the end result!
Raquel has been training for the 800 meter event in track and right now is up in the mountains for the high elevation training for a month to get ready for the season ahead. Our talent are athletes and that makes a big difference on jobs like these. To be able to run for miles to get the shot, have the correct heal strike (or not), and the composure to look the way the director wants is not something every talent can do. Ours can because they train daily for themselves and for the job.
Raquel has been with SLU for a little over a year and a half and has worked with the major hitters in this industry and shows no signs of slowing down. While training for track is a major time commitment, with lots of communication between her and her agents, we make it work!
