Mazda 'Incredible World'


Strange Beast put director Sam Mason and creative director Pete Candeland together on “Incredible World,” a stunning advert for Mazda and agency Berlin Cameron United. The spot follows a new model Mazda CX-9 through seamlessly integrated landscapes rendered in lushly stylized CG.

Strange Beast handled all design and direction, while Absolute Post’s NY office took on the animation and compositing. That’s a potent combo.
