In celebration, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will debut Wraith Inspired by Film special edition at New York Auto Show 2015 tomorrow. And the World Stood Still won a Gold Award at the 26th International Visual Communications Association (IVCA) Awards, and was considered a striking piece of contemporary cinematography by BFI’s Senior Curator for Non-Fiction Films, Patrick Russell.
Rolls-Royce’ Wraith launch film was selected for preservation as an outstanding and award-winning example of modern corporate promotional filmmaking. Marc Mielau, Global Head of Marketing, Rolls Royce Motor Cars says it’s an honour to see And the World Stood Still archived, and reflects innovation and creativity of the team involved.
And the World Stood Still was filmed at a secret location near Barcelona, and used Timeslice (frozen time) sequence using 100 SLR cameras and a prototype Rolls Royce Wraith. A behind the scenes film was also launched.
