Credits & Description

BMW – Eclipse

Beauty is truly ‘eclipsed’ in this spot for BMW's 6 Series Gran Coupe marking another collaboration for us with Rouge's Sam Brown and WCRS.
It's great to be working with Sam Brown and WCRS again with creatives Simon and Jo for the latest BMW spot Eclipse spot.  The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe comes to life in this new commercial, as it crashes through the earth's atmosphere within the shadows of a solar eclipse.
Mike Chapman, The Mill's 3D Lead, explains his role "After spending a lot of time and detail studying solar eclipse references, sun surface textures and solar storms we got completely stuck in and re-created all of the beautiful solar shots in the spot."
Chris Batten, The Mill's VFX Producer, adds "While we developed and created the solar eclipse, storms and the sun the director, Sam Brown and the Rogue crew flew to the LA salt flats to shoot the live action sequences along with very specific practical FX plates for us  so we could later comp around the car.  The end result is a beautiful piece of work."
