    Nice. I'm glad to see Tesla making some commercials. I think it will help spread the word. I like the eco-approach of this commercial and the glance inside the car to the 17" screen.

    Nice and the only thing that makes it seem like TM didn't do it is the charging station sign. Everything else looks very professional and the only thing I'd edit out.

    I was going to say... Doesn't that guy have a parking ticket for not having a front license plate? Looks like he fixed it. Great piece, though. I'm glad to see it handles well in wet sand. Ah, Days of Thunder, how little we miss you!

    This would make for a great 30 second commercial. Why not throw in some wind turbines as well? And also some people staring at the car as it goes by.

    You're thinking of the Infiniti/Lexus/whatever commercial.

    Okay, found out the deal. It was a rough cut that was leaked. The final, longer film will come out in next month or so. As you can see, the video that was linked above has been pulled.

    Anyone happen to capture or download the video so that we folks coming late to the party can enjoy it too?

    Very cool, thanks for posting!

    Wonder if the driving on the beach part is compositing with After Effects. It looks too smooth for driving in the sand, but the reflections look pretty real.

    I directed the Tesla video for which this thread was created. First of all, I want to thank every one of you for your interest in the piece. What you saw was a "rough cut" that was not meant to go public...we will be releasing a longer, more polished version with a stronger narrative in the coming weeks. You'll notice that both the vimeo and youtube postings have been taken down.

    I ask that if any else has downloaded the video, please DO NOT POST.

    Thank you all for your comments and enthusiasm. More to come soon!
