Bonito used the big screen to promote the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, creating a 1.5 minute James Bond-like trailer that aired in theaters across the United States. The promotional spot featured U.S. Olympic snowboarder Chris Klug fleeing (via snowboard) from legions of police cars, helicopters and snowmobiles after he's clocked for speeding down the slopes. After several aerial maneuvers, a crash through the glass of a hockey rink, (where U.S. Olympic Women's hockey player Cammie Granato body checks a cop car on the ice to enable Klug's narrow escape), and a brief flirtation with a beautiful admirer on the sidelines, Klug is whisked into the air by a helicopter, leaving the audiences wanting more for the ensuing Games.
Bonito's Arena Football League 2004 campaign, featuring Jon Bon Jovi and John Elway, recently swept the 2004 PROMAX/BDA awards, where Bonito won three Gold Awards for directing, editing and funniest promo.
Bonito is also attached to direct the feature Searching for Jordan, with Ed Pressman producing.
