Campaign for Mini John Cooper Works Days. Mini organized a competition in many European countries and Brightly was in charge for its communication. They called Rauno Aaltonen, a Finnish former professional rally driver who won many races. He challenged younger drivers to participate in Mini contest, but in a out of the ordinary way.
As the photographer and post-production artist I had the challenging task to visualize crazy concepts. For this creativity I was asked to recreate an effect like Flash, the comic character. Ironically I solved it with the strobe function of a little flash. After shooting Rauno running for the studio, I composited the shots and added final effects in Photoshop.
This is how the campaign was used in one of Mini official Facebook page:
