Creative advertising with Virtual Production: "My Body. My Ride."
The visionary spec-commercial shot at our Berlin studio shows off the creative possibilities that Virtual Production has to offer.
Where do you go, when the ordinary is not enough and reality is just not interesting enough? Visionary director Klaus Kneist found his own imaginative dream land at our Berlin studio to perfectly fit the creative vision and production requirements of his spec commercial for Mercedes-Benz.
In this collaborative project, we put our most recently build studio in Berlin to the test. The result is a beautiful spec commercial showing off what can happen when creative direction, skillful filmmaking, technical expertise and a passion for filmmaking come together at LEDcave.
