Mercedes X-Class “Follow” Making Of
Hamburg VFX powerhouse Infected reveals the immense amount of love, sweat and fur they put into the making of this spectacular mini-epic for the new Mercedes X-Class luxury pickup.
Managing director Henning Westerwelle: “Infected took care of the whole design, postproduction and VFX process together with a team of over 25 Artists located in Hamburg or sometimes all over the world.
“It was a blast and a joyride to create every single frame for this monster of a commercial with everything finished in 4K.
“Whenever you have the chance to create a monster, CGI rhinos and buffaloes, a superhero, spaceships and a comic character for one project – take it!”
