We wanted a short film to exist within this commercial. When we travel into the hero's imagination, the aspect ratio transforms from 16:9 to 2.40 widescreen, suddenly becoming a tribute to films like The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Game. We wanted a special cinematic look so we shot on Panavision's unique expanded anamorphic lenses which cover a large format sensor. We then used a variety of custom rigs to achieve some epic camera movements.
