Director Mischa Rozema returns with another trademark visually unique mixed media film, combining live action with 2d/3d animation, motion graphics, stock footage and visual effects. BSUR approached PostPanic to help them create an extra special product launch film to match the distinctive new MINI Rocketman concept.
The Rocketman concept sees MINI reinvent the small car again by going back to the essence of MINI’s founding design principles. The car, a three-seater with a space-saving carbon-fibre cross frame, has been designed with MINI purists in mind. Whilst the Rocketman concept is not a retro car, it is a modern interpretation of the original MINI idea: a fun, simple, ultra compact solution to urban mobility.
Mischa chose to approach this narrative script with a visually engaging series of story-telling devices helping bridge the past with the future. His solution tested the whole team at PostPanic, engaging all the in-house departments from live action through to 3d, motion graphics and visual effects.
Most staggering is that the whole production took just 4 weeks from start to finish, including two studio shoots in Amsterdam and Munich.
The 2 minute product film was specifically created for the Geneva Motor Show where the MINI Rocketman was showcased as a concept car.
