Lamborghini | Lamborghini Revuelto – From Now On*

Produced by KarenTM

“The schedule was very challenging, especially considering the amount of post-production shots. Security—the car was super top secret—and budget too, because there were a lot of instances to be taken into consideration to get the project done.” – Director Alessandro Naboni

Google | Google Pier 57 – Anthem

Edited by Ian Watt

“While the Pier 57 space is truly chocked full of unique textures and palettes, it was still an artistic challenge to capture. The space was still undergoing construction while filming, with parallel delivery timelines, the completion of the space itself, and the film to promote it. By doing post-production end-to-end at BANG!™, the flexibility allowed for the crew to capture with two separate shoots several weeks apart to build an edit framework to craft the narrative, and then quickly implement the new footage of completed spaces into the final edits later, without skipping a beat. – Director/Editor Ian Watt

Official Selections: Narrative


Directed by Zach Ramelan

“Clementine was a film heavily reliant on VFX and voice-over; the movie’s co-star is AI-projected throughout the entire home that was applied in post. Since we didn’t have those assets on set, I, the crew, and our fearless lead actor Jacqueline Dos Santos had to pretend an AI virtual character was present in almost every scene and make it feel authentic. It blew my mind to see how seamlessly our pretending worked in the final cut. I’ve never done a film with so much VFX before, and our ambition paid off. Big shout out to our VFX team Genisis Rivas and Luma Pixels.” – Director Zach Ramelan

How to explore abandoned places, the tutorial

Created by Okos

“I chose the songs for my project because each one of them had a special significance for the specific moments in the video. I wanted the music to enhance the visuals and create an emotional impact. These songs were selected to evoke different moods and convey specific messages. The musical arrangement aligned with the themes in the video, creating a coherent and meaningful experience. My goal was and always is to captivate the audience and make each moment memorable with the power of music, as for me, it’s always the most important thing in a video.” – Okos
