The Shell Eco-marathon Americas is a unique competition that brings together more than 100 teams and thousands of students from across the Americas to battle for ultra-energy efficiency. The final competition took place on the streets of Downtown Houston in April 2013.

We embedded three camera crews with student teams in Canada, North America and Brazil during their preparations for the Shell Eco Marathon and released three 20 minute episodes prior to event. A 60 minute version is now in distribution with TV networks around the world. Watch the trailer and the three long form episodes. shell-eco-marathon-start
