We can now reveal our film for the new Bentley Continental GT Speed. Launched at the Paris Motor Show September 2012

Bentley’s new Continental GT Speed coupé is capable of fast lap times, but it’s a real-world supercar, not a track special. Distinctive it may be, but it’s also the latest in a long line of devastatingly fast, smooth and rewarding Bentley grand tourers.

mustard-berlin were commissioned to produce and direct the launch film for the new 2012 Bentley GT Speed. Filming took place in Slovenia and Croatia. The combined film and photo shoot was Directed & produced by mustard-berlin (Martin Bennett). Filmed with the Arri Alexa, Phantom and the Canon 5D MkIII & MKII.

The post production took place in London with Malcolm Crowe onboard again as our star editor. The VFX and retouch were superbly created by The Brewery. The beautiful colour grade was handled by Rushes and the fantastic Simon Grattarola.

Shooting in California taking in downtown LA and several different locations all over the state we were on the road for 2 amazing weeks filming a new launch film and shooting stills photography.

For the film shoot we collaborated yet again with DP Jean-Baptist. The camera car, a supercharged Mercedes ML55 with edge system head and arm was provided by Performance Filmworks. Driven by Donny Bailey, Crane operated by Mike Barnett and Edge technician Carlos “Cafe” Cibils. An amazing and talented team of guys that were a pleasure to work with and made it possible for us to create some amazing driving camera moves. The film was originated on the amazing Arri Alexa using Zeiss Ultra Primes and Arri/Zeiss zooms. Additional fottage was captured using the Canon 5D MKII using Canon L prime lenses, operated by Martin.

Photographer Graham Thorp was comissioned once again  to shoot the stills. Using the Hasselblad H2 with a Phase One P65 back with Hasselblad lenses. The photos were a combination of statics and dynamic driving images shot in urban locations in LA and rural locations spread over the state of California. For the dynamic driving images we calibrated yet again with Move & Shoot and one of their LA based riggers Aaron Knoke.

We now move into post-production on both the film and stills. We cant reveal at this stage the model of the car but as soon as the images & film go live at the Geneva motor show we’ll upload them, watch this space…
