The Spec Deck: Dance Fever

Published on .

Shane Edelman, director of the feature According to Spencer, had been signed for commercials with the late Palomar Pictures and is currently seeking representation. His highly polished VW spec spot, touting its six-speaker sound system, presents us with a support group for car dancers - the kind of people who, when they open their car doors, 50 loose CDs fall out. "One of the actors in the group, coincidentally, had been in every possible support group, so he was my sage, making sure that all the details were authentic and not comical," says Edelman. Nevertheless, the spot, shot on hi-def 24P, is wryly amusing.
