Vans partnered with film fellowship non-profit Ghetto Film School to create a series of short brand videos. Over 100 students pitched their ideas to us, each encapsulating the idea of the Vans "Off the Wall" mentality (which really means ~ go buck wild and forgo societal constraints). We created a multi-phase process to help educate filmmakers on how to pitch brands and finesse their work to sell. Candidated were narrowed down in each phase based on their work and natural brand integration. There were so many talented individuals, but ultimately, three mega-talented filmmakers were selected to create their ideas: Adian Bae, Guinevere Alcaraz, and Alyse Arteaga. 

As part of the program, Vans donated $250k to the organization and the development of future filmmakers. 

 

Girls. Girls. Girls! What brand could stereotypically define Girlhood more than the icon Barbie? In a world full of gender expectations, Barbie showed young women they could be anything and do anything. So, when Vans partnered with Mattel’s Barbie to celebrate the new Greta Gerwig film, we centered the collab campaign around the idea of Girlhood.

We worked with a range of models to represent different styles and identities to showcase that Girlhood wasn’t just pink tutus. Girlhood means exploring your interests, styles that excite you, friendships that support you, and creativity that boosts your shine.
