Volkswagen Beetle Travels “The Last Mile”

Director Fx Goby and the Nexus crew in London mark the end of production for the VW Beetle with an emotional multi-generation epic rotoscoped by hand and starring Ferdinand Porsche’s original 1938 design.

Fx Goby: “The film has a limited color palette, evocative of a warm nostalgic feel. We wanted the film to feel warm and tactile, as if every frame had been printed, keeping the slight happy accidents of overlapping colors and paper textures.”
