SuperHeroes NY has your next blank canvas



Calling all visual artists! From Red Hook to Brownsville. If you’re a Brooklyn visual artist, SuperHeroes New York has got your next blank canvas. Our NY office has bought the back cover of the Red Hook Star Revue for August and September and is giving the space away for Brooklyn artists to showcase their best poster designs.


The Brooklyn Poster Project

The idea for this Brooklyn Poster Project started when a search for a mural artist for new office space came back with loaded results. “Brooklyn is bursting with amazing talent, and this is a great opportunity for us to show some love, and also meet some local creatives for future projects,” says Rob Zuurbier, SuperHeroes partner, and managing director.  


There are two rounds of submissions for this project. The winning design from the first round of submissions will be featured on the back cover of the August issue of the Red Hook Star Revue, while the winner from the second round will be featured on the back cover of the September issue. However, all submitted designs from both rounds will be showcased on the official page along with a short bio of the artist and a link to their portfolio.

SuperHeroes New York, Canon USA create launch film for world’s first AI bounce technology

What do trampolines and photographers have in common? They both love a good bounce.

When it comes to photography, the perfect bounce flash helps give that big-time professional studio look when shooting indoors. However, it’s a technical skill that’s tough to pull off, and just like bouncing on a trampoline, if you aren’t doing it right…it shows.


Bounce like a pro

Bouncing just got easier thanks to the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI, which features the world’s first Auto Intelligent (AI) Bounce technology, allowing even a novice photographer to bounce like a pro. To help Canon USA introduce the very technical product to their target of mid-level photographers, SuperHeroes New York was tapped in helping create a playful launch film.



Directed by Pete Marquis, the film tickles your funny bone. Featuring Carly Ann Filbin and Sarah Smallwood Parsons, two rising stars from New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade, the spot uses physical comedy and a bit of misdirection to get to the bottom of this whole bouncing thing.

Behind the scenes with Eurojackpot

What does it take to win the lottery? Forget superstitions or lucky numbers, according to our latest Eurojackpot campaign, grabbing that big prize is all about having the winning attitude. Kicking off the 360 brand campaign is the delightfully epic film that encourages you to stop dreaming and start doing, because life is just one big jackpot, and it’s time to cash in. Directed by Nicolas Randall with special effects by Therapy Studios and sound by Squeaky Clean, the absurdly epic commercial is loaded with stunts, fun, and of course… winning.




Shot in the sprawling Mojave desert, just up the road from the famous “Kill Bill church”, the sunrise to sunset shoot was not without its challenges, and not just the lousy WiFi, or lack of facilities.





The biggest ‘oh shit’ moment came after motorcycle broke down right before the big ramp stunt.  Believe it or not, the motorcycle didn’t have a driveshaft when it hit the ramp… 



Big props to the crew and the combined SuperHeroes AMS/NY team who were able to help bring the film to life on such a tight timeline!

The 360 brand campaign hits the Dutch market with digital OOH, short films, and retail placements, but it’s the commercial spot that really sets the tone.
