I love the graphic novel, Watchmen. I thought the movie was good, too.
A few months before the movie came out, they announced a contest: Make a commercial for a Veidt Product, and have the best ones appear in the film!
So, Dylan Brown, a friend of mine, approached me and asked if I would like to do something with him. He had a great idea of taking it beyond the products they had on their site for us to use…he wanted to make an action figure of Ozymandias, Veidt’s super hero alter ego. He made the figures, wrote a script, and then me and Justinn filmed it. I think it came out awesome and totally 80s, perfect to the tone of the graphic novel. Unfortunately, we didn’t win, but another toy commercial did.
