The Audi A6 Film Content: #RevealTheA6

International film contest for the launch of the Audi A6: We asked filmmakers around the world to introduce the new Audi A6 in a short film. We set only one limitation to their creativity: the car itself should not be visible.

More than 120 applications were sent in for #RevealTheA6. From those entries, the jury – consisting of film and automobile experts – chose the best six concepts. To give them some inspiration, Audi lifted the veil for the finalists before the official premiere of the A6.

Four weeks later: the film makers have finished and submitted their short films, produced with a budget of 15,000 EUR made available by Audi. The jury chose the three best short films. The focus of the films should lie on one of the three core competences of the new A6: comfort, digitalization or sportiness.

 

he film contest is a big chance as Wolfgang Rother, Head of Electronic Media Communications Department, explains: “The film contest creates new perspectives for both the film makers and Audi. We hope for bold, creative short films as they have never yet been seen at Audi.”

Andrei Goaga wins the #RevealTheA6 film contest

To finally determine the first, second and third place, we opened up public voting on Facebook. Andrei Goaga won the race for the coveted first place with his contribution “Comfort is more than a mix”, followed by Bob Heinemann with “Mr. Comfort” and Stjepan Marina with “Everything’s changing”.

Andrei Goaga, the winner, dedicated his short film to the A6 core competence “comfort”. How did he come up with the idea that “comfort is more than a mix”? “I believe that the totality is larger than the sum of parts,” Andrei says “and this also goes for the components that define the car’s comfort”.

For three weeks, he and his film crew looked for the perfect location and prepared the film set. The Romanian filmmaker had the music composed exclusively for the film. “The scoring is extremely important. I was finally satisfied with the third version,” he says with a laugh.

Does Andrei see his future in Hollywood? The Romanian laughs. “The sky is the limit. Who knows what’s next. I have just begun to pick up speed – just like the Audi A6.“
