The Mill and Y&R New York reunite long lost lovers in "The Collector" for Land Rover Evoque.
In this 60 second spot for Land Rover, a captain and
his lady are separated at sea by storm only to be brought together
hundreds of years later by man passionate about collecting. The car
is the vessel that connects them in the end.
The Mill NY team created the dramatic 3D ship as well
as water simulation in the splashing sea. Battleship shots were
enhanced and made more epic and explosions were composited as well.
The team worked on the color grade extensively.
"We tried to avoid the usual glossy running footage
look for the 'modern day' sequences and instead blended it in more
with the historical look, while still keeping the car looking
great," said Fergus McCall, Head of Telecine at The Mill
Senior Compositor and Joint Head of 2D, Gavin
Wellsman, added, "It was great to work with Simon again and really
try and get as much in camera as possible. Simon gave us great
images to work with as a base and was very collaborative when it
came to designing our visual effects shots."
