Via Reset in the U.S. and Academy Films in the U.K., the directorial duo Us--consisting of Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor--turned out this spot for ad agency RPA using a camera technique called parallax whereby the camera and scenery are moved in such a way that the car appears to be moving when it actually is standing still. The :30 was shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer (Life of Pi) Claudio Miranda.

We first see Anderson’s Honda Accord in the showroom and before our eyes in is next in the driveway of a home, then on the road, passing a big rig truck before finally bringing the couple inside to a restaurant for a romantic dinner.

The sets were life-size pieces pushed in and off-camera by crews; some pieces were on rails, others free-standing like the truck set in the Accord spot, which came within a hair’s breadth of the car as it moved across the space.
