The new BMW X5 commercial "Stillstand" shows the latest model in a host of stunning locations around the world. The X5 has reached the ends of the earth and is merely parked up gently watching the world go by. In contradiction to the typical 4x4 tv ad with car grunting through rough roads conquering landscape, the landscape moves around the car in sometimes surreal serenity.
It is hard to see what post production has gone into this commercial. Nothing looks like it couldn’t have been achieved in camera apart from maybe the freeway scene where there’s a timelapse which could have had some assistance in post. So what could Finish have spent 5 weeks doing on this commercial? Was it just some cleaning up of landscapes and beautifying of the car? In fact this commercial is an example of the kind of seamless special effects that all too often go un noticed and therefore not ever awarded! So we challenge you....can you pick which cars are real and which are CG?
