New methods of communication - the BMW Group presents its first music video
"check my machine" is a film project which has been created in a close collaboration between the BMW Group's Electronic Media Department and creative Munich artists Jonas Imbery (Gomma Records) and Mirko Borsche (Bureau mirko borsche). The Brainstormclub and Eyetrip are responsible for production.
The soundtrack, composed by Jonas Imbery, could also be played in the world's most popular clubs. "The appeal of the work was to develop a viable, independent, recognisable composition that only makes use of vehicle sounds, such as the blinkers, GPS voice, closing noises, seat belts, doors, safety alarm, to name but a few. The visual resolution at the end shows clearly that the percussive elements such as the bass synthesizer, the vocals and the melodies were produced by the vehicle itself."
Mirko Borsche adds: "We wanted to set a new standard, to create a unique visual language and to stand out clearly from how a classic image film looks. The aim was that the film should become an independent, artistically challenging work.
"Various visual design resources were used to transform the technical environment of the production halls into an emotional world. To separate the machines and robots from the rest of the area, we worked with selective focus, carefully targeted lighting and reflexions incorporated through crystals", explained Daniel Falk from Eyetrip.
The film can be viewed from Monday 11 July from 6 p.m. at Youtube under the following link: http://www.youtube.com/...
