Alessandro Pacciani + Juice = BMW M4
Tokyo-based director Alessandro Pacciani travels to Shanghai to capture BMW’s M4 then conjures 90 seconds of vehicular adrenaline called “Factory Trailer” with the help of editor Marco Battiloro and the VFX skills of Warsaw post house Juice.
Director Alessandro Pacciani: “A unique car with unique performance (425 horsepower, 0-60 in 4.1 seconds and 7:52 Nürburgring lap). In order to highlight all of its beauty, the team decided to place the car in a very industrial environment.
“After filming the machine on a race track – specially prepared and set up for the shoot – the entire location was recreated in 3D to make it look like a very large refinery. Extremely detailed surroundings with the number of lights reaching tens of thousands.
“The goal was to seamlessly blend the footage with a carefully generated night scenario, sparingly lit by foggy lighting. To create the mysterious, slightly dark mood of Nowhere City without losing the realism and distracting the viewer from the main attraction.
