Vertu Constellation - Extended 90' cut - Making Extraordinary
'Creating the world's best luxury mobile phone' - The Constellation is handmade in England by a single craftsman.
This commercial follows a Vertu craftsman in a montage of stimulating macro images cut to a rhythmic score of titillating sound FX.
A visual technique of ‘matching frames’ links contrasting images - from the physical to the sensory; the craft and the technology - the rational and emotional assemblage of 148 parts. Shot from a dynamic and dramatic viewpoint that’s close enough to hear the scalpel; smell the leather; see the dust...

An oddball half-human, half grape-faced monster lets off some steam - despite how much trouble he gets into, he just cannot stop himself from misbehaving (over and over again...)

Uplifting but meaningful, enter an immersive environment that engrosses you in the darkness: the music, the people, the dance.
