Like so many complex productions, this was a simple idea – to make a short film in FULL-CGI as a showcase. To push some boundaries and possibilities in our work. And also to have some fun at the same time!
Inspiration:Of course we wanted to work with a car….but in a modern visual language evolving around the dynamism developing in electric cars. Images of power and light, of a clean and positive future, more attuned to the environment without losing any of its visceral impact as an object of desire.What contemporary pioneers would inspire us, visually and conceptually?A character to be the centre of gravity for our story.We settled on a man with a dream to be the first Black man on the Moon.
To the moon and back.
