Honda: The Power of Dreams

Great inspirational video about pushing yourself. It’s ok to fail, because without failure, there can’t be success.

Failure. The mere thought can paralyze even the most heroic thinkers and keep great ideas off the drawing board. But is failing really that bad? We get an inside look at the mishaps of Honda racers, designers and engineers to learn how they draw upon failure to motivate them to succeed. From poor color choices to blown race engines, these risk-taking individuals provide an honest look at what most people fear most. Watch the film and discover the upside of failure.

Lyrical, imaginative and sometimes humorous images, from ‘mindscapes’ to literal reality content. Working from studios in London, Edinburgh and Frankfurt, the creative toolkit expanded rapidly from location/studio origination to include in house model making and retouching. And, it included some of the earliest use of high rez 3D CGI for print advertising. Although Philip Chudy remains one of a handful of advertising photographers anywhere in the world, who work, hands-on with highly technical 3D CGI production, his fervent focus is on the final image. The palette, which ranges from highly narrative/illustrative to pure abstract visual content is designed to enhance the advertising message on a range of levels. From his base in San Francisco, he creates images for automotive and other discriminating clients worldwide.
