From Alien to Blade Runner and Gladiator, Ridley Scott has helmed some of the most iconic and celebrated films of all time. However, the legendary film-director doesn't limit himself only to big-screen endeavors, having also created some of the most iconic advertising shorts, including Apple's 1984.
Most recently, a cognac producer offered Scott the chance to create a dazzling short film inspired by its centuries-old brand and enviable legacy, he saw an opportunity to develop something that was more than just an advertisement—something memorable and impactful that could truly resonate with viewers.
The end result, "The Seven Worlds," is a marvelous odyssey spanning surreal scenes inspired by the seven tasting notes of Hennessy premium X.O. cognac. Realizing Scott's unparalleled vision required a masterful team and state-of-the-art technology to assist, that's where London's The Mocap Studio team came in. The mobile motion capture specialists lent their expertise to the project, using Xsens MVN inertial technology to help capture a human performer on-location in the heart of a Czech forest.
