Directed by Ben Hume-Paton and produced by Kwok Yau, the film was shot over a day and two nights in southern Spain, using a mix of the Red Camera, Panasonic 3700 and Canon 7D. The team at Gaucho Productions created their own mix of smoke, mirrors and laser light to help them highlight the CR-Z.
“The unusual concept of a stylish, sporty hybrid offered us a great opportunity to push the boundaries. Although this is a fantasy drive we wanted to make it look as real as possible, which meant creating our own laser light show on the Spanish coast. The Honda CR-Z is a fun, engaging car and we’re confident we’ve captured its unique spirit in a film that challenges and entertains,” Alistair Weaver, managing director, Gaucho Productions, said in a release.
“Gaucho have now produced a series of launch films for us and we’re always impressed by their creativity, dedication and attention to detail.

The CR-Z is a very important car for Honda and this film communicates our core messages in a stylish, innovative and successful way,” stated Laura Price, social media manager, Honda Motor Europe.
