To honour the pioneers of flight, luxury brand IWC created the exclusive Pilot’s Watch Series. In close collaboration with Jung von Matt, Sehsucht was given the opportunity to create a film which captures the courage and the spirit of these legends of the sky.
Before the film could fly, Sehsucht & director Ole Peters, had some rather specific challenges to overcome. The circumstances dictated that the live action must be shot in Switzerland during October and the plane sequences – from the cliff coasts of England and the Sahara Desert, to Miramar in California and the spectacular maneuvers above the clouds - needed to be generated with complex CGI. Sky was the limit.
The result is an impressive composition of these different elements, which melt together through sensitive and highly skilled work, to create a cohesive and spectacular film experience.
