Simple ideas require simple solutions.
Some projects require simple, smart solutions, like these fun Phobia spots for Nationwide.

Throw some moving tree shadows on a wall behind in post, and you have a convincing shot.
And an even simpler approach…
Sometimes you just shoot an empty desk and others grab a fan and some filament wire to pull over your props on green screen and find the right stock beach footage. Why make it harder than it needs to be!
