Tripping Time

by Syd Briscoe


Federal Express: “Next Level” - 60s

A woman travels through a variety of unexpected worlds in this quirky commercial for FedEx. The fashion designer follows the progress of her product through the courier service's system, moving smoothly through scenes of manufacture, delivery, and finally reaching new customers via the approval of satisfied buyers.

Director Davis Silis ensures that each shot transition feels natural, as though the scenery is moving around the main character as much as she's travelling through it. Lovely design work keeps things fresh despite a rather corporate voiceover, with a scene in which glowing balls of data are conducted like musical instruments being a particular treat for the eyes.
