In a surprising turn of events, director Jon Favreau apparently approached Freddie Wong and company to make a video to help promote the upcoming Cowboys and Aliens. According to Wong’s post on Reddit, the entire project was Favreau’s idea.
Jon’s kid apparently LOVES our stuff – they’ve been watching our videos for months. Jon wanted to do something with us so he basically pulled a bunch of weight and told Universal to let us do ANYTHING.
That meant shooting on the Universal lot for free, props and wardrobe from the movie free for our use, equipment, etc. It was a dream come true.
So we came up with a ridiculous concept where it was basically cowboys versus the FreddieW channel, and sent it by him, and he was totally down.
How does this match-up of cinematic minds fair? Pretty dang good by the look of it.
