Andy Gilbert: Tesla Fireflies

ADC Young Guns 11 winner contributes to an electrifying spec spot

In current news (electric current, that is…)

New York-based 3D artist extraordinaire and ADC Young Guns 11 winner Andy Gilbert adds his own spark as Lead Artist on this beautifully designed all-CGI spec spot for Tesla Motors. Directed by Sam O’Hare, “Fireflies” has been getting a lot of buzz these past few days across the web, and even Tesla tweeted out their appreciation. Shocking, isn’t it? (Yes, we’ve depleted our electricity puns)
