In order to successfully draw viewers into the guise of a performance car commercial, Koff took a photographic approach to CG, heightening the believability of the illusion with precise detail and realistic camera movements.

I chose to keep the camera moves very tabletop up until the explosion, mimicking real live action car footage.”
