featured by GoSee ADVERTISING : BMW and Media.Monks present the ‘Duality Untamed’ campaign for the new M5 high-performance sedan with style icon and Designer Justin O’Shea

BMW presents the global campaign for the new M5 sedan with the title ‘Duality Untamed’, which was produced by Media.Monks Germany together with style icon and Fashion Designer Justin O’Shea. From working as creative director at Brioni or launching his own fashion label SSS World Corp. to his present role as CD for the spirits portfolio at LVMH, O’Shea appreciates extremes and supposed contradictions. Characteristics that are perfectly reflected in the all-new BMW M5.

Directed by Knut Burgdorf, it was shot across Barcelona to capture urban footage and Almería’s racetrack for high-performance sequences (production: Parasol Island). Complementing the film, photographer Agnieszka Doroszewicz conducted a separate photo shoot.

“It’s not very often that the personality of the car and the protagonist are so in sync. Although the M5 is a dream car, I tried to stage the film in the here and now, making the dream relatable. Every car enthusiast can relate to becoming a different persona by feeling the power of such a car. This feel is what I wanted to portray. And Justin is the perfect protagonist for that,” says Director Knut Burgdorf.

One of the fundamental themes throughout the campaign for the all-new BMW M5 is the concept of ‘duality untamed’. How does Justin relate to the concept? “My life is kind of summed up in this concept. I have always had two sides, whether it be work and play or business and family. One side always fuels the other and vice versa. Ultimately, they are tied together by the emotions and mentality that define who I am – passion, devotion, hard work and fun.”

“The M5 is an iconic model with an impressive history, and working on the launch of the BMW M5 plug-in hybrid has been an incredible privilege for our team. With ‘Duality Untamed’, we wanted to give the M5 a platform that captures its essence: performance paired with progressiveness, power and style. The contrasting worlds within which we have staged Justin O’Shea together with the vehicle are interwoven in the film to create a dynamic experience, uniting all of these elements,” says Mario Zaradic, Creative Director at Media.Monks.

featured by Uwe Duettmann : BMW THE 4 – the 30-second campaign spot by UWE DUETTMANN for you on GoSee.News

In his usual powerful imagery – the spot for BMW’s The 4 campaign by Director UWE DUETTMANN stages the equally athletic and exhilarating BMW 4 Series with striking uber-catchy character. More emotion than a mere commercial, while purposely provocative, definitely independent and even a bit edgy – the spot skillfully plays with the brand attributes.

“The BMW 4 Series Coupé boasts unparalleled aesthetics, sporty dynamic performance and a premium interior. Its combination of standalone design and impressive agility generates an extraordinary aesthetic appeal.” says BMW.

With its four brands BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad, the BMW Group is the world’s leading premium manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles, as well as the provider of premium financial and mobility services. The company has around 125,000 employees worldwide.

After more than two decades in the business, the portfolio of the highly decorated advertising and transportation specialist Uwe Duettmann reflects the highly productive and slightly crazy side of the advertising world in a positive sense. From raising an eyebrow or magically putting a smile on your face, to serious portraits and glossy car shots, or even bizarre scenarios – let Uwe take you with him on a big colorful journey – the story of which is far from over.
