    Paul WS Anderson’s ‘The Coup” for Audi

    29 April 2015

    The Hollywood blockbuster style Audi spot we shot with Resident Evil Director Paul WS Anderson with UK’s Mob Films and Berlin’s Markenfilm Berlin for agency thjnk berlin was flighted last week. This is the spot that had us shutting down entire sections of highway in Johannesburg last year.

    It made Editor’s Pick in this weeks’s Creativity online – ” “The Coup” centres on a team of daredevils hijacking a transporter full of Audi S Line Special Edition Models while it’s actually on the highway and lifting it over the busy traffic via helicopter. To achieve that action movie excitement, the agency tapped director Paul W.S. Anderson (“Resident Evil” and “The Three Musketeers”). The message, of course, is that these Audis are so desirable that people would go to these extreme lengths to get their hands on them. Thjnk’s Berlin office worked on the spot, with production by German firm Markenfilm Berlin.”

    Toyota – a 3 country epic

    23 March 2015

    Directed by Daisuke Kobayashi, this is the epic 3-country project shot by Spoon, Tokyo for Dentsu and Toyota. The identical sequence was shot in Tokyo, Sydney and finally with us in Cape Town, with the production team flying between the 3 cities over 5 – 6 months. Two identical hero cars (the classic Toyota Levin from the 1980’s) were used between the 3 countries. Every camera angle, every shot was matched in each version. The Spoon and Dentsu teams were great to work with – we loved this project.
