Artist owned and operated bi-coastal effects boutique Brickyard VFX recently worked on a new campaign for Volkswagen via Deutsch LA. Directed by Biscuit Filmworks’ Noam Murro, the campaign – featuring :30 spots “6/10ths,” “When,” and “Piñata” – is currently airing. Brickyard Executive Producer Jeff Blodgett remarked, “Deutsch has produced some great creative for VW, and these spots are no exception. We were thrilled to be a part of this campaign.” In “Nice Try” a teenager tries to secretly take his dad’s 2012 CC for a spin. But he’s busted before he even begins when the backup camera reveals that his dad has written the car’s current mileage on the driveway in chalk. “Can I Drive?” illustrates the 2011 Jetta TDI® Clean Diesel’s excellent fuel efficiency. On a car ride, a father tells his son that he can drive “when we stop for gas” – but to the son’s dismay, they drive on and on into the night without having to refuel. Finally, “Piñata” conveys the strength of the 2011 Tiguan by showing a child’s (and later an adult’s) inability to damage a Tiguan-shaped piñata at a backyard party. Brickyard provided compositing, beauty work and color correction throughout the campaign. All VFX work was completed with Autodesk Flame.
