TOH had the pleasure of creating a thrilling and dynamic commercial campaign for celebrated author Amanda Hocking’s latest series, Watersong. The four novels follow the story of a young swimmer who falls under the haunting spell of three gorgeous, yet dangerous sirens. Check out our killer behind the scenes featurette below:

The unique premise and setting of these stories gave us the opportunity to get really creative with our production process and utilize a number of different resources throughout Los Angeles. After developing a visually stimulating concept, casting the perfect actors, and selecting seven different locations, we dove right into shooting across four jam packed days.
