    Hi. I still love this spot.

    I directed this commercial for Audi and BBH London a couple of years ago. I also came up with all the illusions and did the matte paintings based on studying Escher and textbook illusions. I wanted to bring it up to date. So I’m very proud that so many people appreciated the spot. It seems to have an underground following.

    There is also a very secret 60sec version out there in the vaults.

    this Audi spot is what inspired parts of Christopher Nolan’s movie “Inception” I believe….

    not really escher….but escher-like. in fact it’s a variation of sandro del prete’s folded chessboard, sandro does escher-like paintings that are really worth checking out.[img]http://www.moillusions.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/trompe_del-prete.jpg[/img]
