I was asked if I would be interested in taking part of an independent Lotus commercial and of course I said yes!

I never knew how much time went into making movies and commercials. It took nearly 4-5 hours of filming and planning for a 30 second commercial yesterday with Johnny Luu. I had a really great time though , filming the different shots and discussing ideas really brought out the creativity out of me. It's amazing what some innovating thinking and creativity can produce. I now understand why a typical hour and a half movie takes a year to produce. Much credit goes to directors and film producers everywhere, it's definitely NOT as easy as it seems, but it's very fun work. I'll upload some behind the scene pictures :)

Here is the video!

Nice little flick. Would have been cool to add some high speed cornering and such like action moves to really show off the talents of Lotus cars. But none the less, good job.
I did a claymation vid wayyyy back in school as an art project. Took just over a day of doing and redoing it to finally get how little we needed to move each figure and piece to do each frame shot to have it turn out good enough. Ridiculous. Just for a 30 second bit. I wouldn't have the patience to be a director or producer.

Hahah the funny thing is we were joking about that, I mentioned it to him to have James Earl Jones to do a voice over !

Cool video, but sorry, the narrator sounds like a teenager.

Surely you guys know someone who can drop a 'Cool Guy Voiceover' track? Something grittier - I'm thinking Liam Neeson. Hell, these days, everyone can do an imitation of everyone.

Another thing I notice - you pressed the start button with your thumb.

Do you really do that? I thought everyone uses their pointer finger?
