The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera makes its debut with a starring role in a new film by the innovative image maker Nick Knight. Placed centre stage amidst a bold piece of contemporary cinematic art, the DBS Superleggera’s poise and power are vividly re-imagined through Knight’s unique vision. The DBS Superleggera has been brought to life through Knight’s dazzling use of photography and CGI, and the shoot was produced by PRETTYBIRD. A location shoot in a former steelworks provided key shots, environments and backgrounds, which were then blended in to Knight’s trademark post-production. ‘I like to push the frontiers of non-narrative film,’ he says, ‘it’s about weaving in a set of emotions and responding naturally to what you see.’ A hugely complex 3D model of the DBS Superleggera was then animated, with dynamic reflections that morph and flex in time with the soundtrack. Fast-changing angles, ‘impossible’ computer generated camera moves and perspective shifts convey a sense of speed and power, with the DBS Superleggera bursting from this kaleidoscopic array of dynamic animated forms. Animation and reflection creates a sparkling and futuristic monochrome landscape that appears to shift and melt around the car. ‘This vision of the car coming out of darkness is like a galaxy speeding towards us,’ says Knight.
