GALLERY 14: VW - How Perfectly

A well-balanced and refined ad shot in the hazy heat of the Barcelona summer. It features three vignettes that focus on professionals at work from designer chef, martial arts teacher to a maths professor, who need to muster up the energy to reproduce their expertise over and over again. The professionals were all actors apart from the diver, a Russian athlete who was talent spotted on a video recording of last year's Olympics. She was made to leap from her board into the water over 40 times before Zacharias was satisfied with the shot.
