The ad was created at Cummins and Partners by creative director and writer Sean Cummins, art director Melissa Turkington and agency producer Mark Bradley.

Filming and photography was directed by Mark Toia via Zoom Film & Television, with producer Noelle Stevens.

Post production was done at Cutting Edge, by colourist Wade Odlum, 3D animators Ben Folkman, Aaron Briggs, Scott Thomas and Elie Jamaa, shake compositor Tahl Niran, inferno artist Jeff Gaunt, and and sound designer Ross Batten. Cutting Edge are responsible for the 3D visual effects – adding city scapes in the horizon, creating a virtual basketball, and animating the car doors, hatch and bonnet.

Soundtrack to the Barina Basketball TV Ad is “I Like To Move It”, a track written by Reel 2 Real in the early 1990s and made popular by Sacha Baron Cohen (Ali G) in the animated movie, Madagascar.
