Bi-coastal production company Stardust created a highly stylized and darkly futuristic world for Toyota’s promo spot for the new Rav 4 EV. Partnering with Saatchi & Saatchi LA, Stardust created a :50 spot featuring a mix of visual effects, photo-real CG and live-action to achieve the final sci-fi look. The spot marks Stardust’s latest push past its traditional high-end motion graphics work, as the company broadens its repertoire in visual effects.
