Paul WS Anderson Goes Full-on Action Blockbuster with New Audi Spot

Paul WS Anderson has recently completed shooting the latest offering from The Vorsprung Durch Technik team at Audi.

In collaboration with thjnk Berlin, the coproduction between The Mob Film Company LTD and Markenfilm Berlin have delivered Audi 'The Coup', a full-blown Hollywood blockbuster heist movie captured in 60 seconds, directed by Paul WS Anderson (Resident Evil, Death Race, Pompeii).

A car transporter fully loaded with the latest Audi S Line models is hijacked by hi-tech thieves, abseiling from helicopters to secure the car transporter to a Chinook helicopter that carries the entire payload through the city skyline. A few near misses along the highway and a SWAT team find the luxury cars in an aircraft hanger thanks to the Audi S Lines’ on board tracking system.

The live action stunts and helicopter shots were all overseen in Johannesburg by UNIT’s VFX supervisors Martin Allan and Stirling Archibald. Full CG models of the Audi cars were built from supplied CAD models. UNIT also created two full CG helicopter models to match those on set and a fully rigged car transporter. The team only had one green screen day from the 4-day shoot to capture all the elements required to make this 60-second thriller.
