Friday Find: 1994 Rockies Intro

We came across this classic during a recent stroll through YouTube, produced by North by Northwest for the 1994 Rockie Awards.

From the video’s description:

In 1994, the Idaho Ad Federation asked vendors to produce openings for that year’s Rockies Show. North By Northwest chose “Newspaper”. The piece was shot in one night and was Jeff Noble’s first “day” on the job. It won for Best Intro.
