GALLERY 14: Berliner Pilsner - Made in Berlin

This cool spot perfectly captures the atmosphere and variety of Berlin's nightlife. It was shot using two DVs and a lipstick camera in 17 different locations in the German capital. For this technically demanding ad, ten hours of material was edited down to one hour and then screened on a large LCD monitor. The footage was then re-shot with a zoom lens on 35mm to achieve the effect of a hidden camera. The resulting ad has a natural quality and a convincing message - Berlin really is the place to party.
