Nola Pictures director Nick Lewin and editor Sean VonLembke have teamed up with Martin Retail Group to create “Standard,” a spot for Cadillac that is anything but. The sharp new :30 is an ode to the timelessly inventive Cadillac brand, which has continually populated the “standard” features in its line of vehicles with the very best in cutting-edge, fully-integrated luxury technology.

“Standard” poses the beautiful new Cadillac SRX against the stark white of an ultra-modernist home, its owner a charmingly harried professional making his way to the office. As the voiceover rolls, listing off all the impressive “standard” features of the SRX, it becomes clear that Cadillac’s definition of the term far outstrips expectations. Despite the crisp final product, the production process proved to be quite challenging. Lewin and crew battled unseasonable rains and resultant production delays, making the spot a testament to both the state of the art Cadillac offering and the ingenuity of its director.
