ID4 world premiere
first automotive commercial shot at our virtual production studio
Powered by Nature
The ID4 is the latest milestone for Volkswagen's “Go to Zero” campaign. For the world reveal, the ID4 was placed in various nature-themed virtual worlds to emphasise the relevance of carbon neutrality. The 5-seat crossover SUV draws its inspiration from nature’s resources and offers great range to accommodate your everyday travels.
behind the scenes
The medium is the Message
The ID4 premiere at the HYPERBOWL was the first virtual production for a car commercial worldwide. The HYPERBOWL stage is designed with surrounding LED panels. This is relevant as the emmissive panels allow for realistic lighting conditions and true reflections - especially in the car’s finish.
As a virtual medium, HYPERBOWL is extremely versatile; it enables quick changes of scenery just as reliably as endless sunsets or completely abstract fantasy worlds, which aren’t possible in non-virtual environments.
All of these advantages were leveraged for the Volkswagen commercial. In just a matter of two days we collected shots in ice-caves, forests, deserts and a cyberpunk-ish city.
The pace of the future is real-time
Real-time technology lowers production cost and increases return on investment. Processes that traditionally took weeks or even months can now be achieved in a matter of days. And there is more creative potential to unleash as the canvas size of possible communication strategies just increased by at least one order of magnitude.
Automotive clients (and others) can rest assured that real-time technology will become one of their greatest assets when designing advertising campaigns. It offers great flexibility and endless possibilities to frame their product, their vision and their brand.
