Rabbit and Team One Take Lexus for a Spin

Produced by NYC-based Rabbit, Belgian director Raf Wathion blends in-camera trickery with VFX for a recent Lexus LS campaign via Team One, El Segundo.

Rabbit is a Production Company based in New York and Brussels with a ‘new school ethos’ that consistently adapts to the ever changing landscape of motion picture production. “Throughout literature, folklore and pop culture, the Rabbit is known to be a mischievous sort. An upstart. A shape-shifter. The loveable prankster.”

Team One is the 300 strong creative boutique from within the Saatchi & Saatchi network, a member of the Publicis Groupe SA. Team One has won Effies and a mulitude of Creative and Research awards, but are mostly recognised by their clients for the contribution that they make to ‘the bottom line’. Team One are a diverse group of hungry, curious individuals, who are never satisfied with the status quo.
