The future also needs a realistic basis. Therefore, the task from Hollywood to the Audi designers for the film “Ender's Game” could not simply be answered with an abstract, exaggerated, futuristic-looking design. Although the "Audi fleet shuttle quattro “only Computer-generated, i.e. digitally built into the film, the film producers put the Audi design team to the test in the creative Munich backyard department of Audi design. Far away from Ingolstadt, the designers here in Schwabing can develop without the constraints of the normal design process and also develop bold ideas. From carbon skis to luxury grandfather clocks, from exclusive leather luggage to designer grand pianos, products are created here that have little to do with automobile construction. The purely digital Audi from the future was also created here. However, its design development was not much less complex than that of a real car.

The Audi quattro from the future has electric motors on all wheels, what else?

The Audi quattro from the future has electric motors on all wheels, what else? But only via CGI.

Drafts were repeatedly sent to Los Angeles via the Internet, came back with comments and were revised umpteen times until the perfect version was ready. For the first time, there is now an Audi purely virtual in a Hollywood production. With the Audi, the Audi design team designed a fictional film car especially for the production of “Enders Game”. Together with Studio Summit Entertainment, the Audi designers developed an Audi that blends seamlessly and visually credibly into the time and the futuristic environment of the film. Director Gavin Hood's positive vision of the future served the designers as inspiration for their model.

True to the motto “Vorsprung durch Technik”, the brand with the four rings used the latest technology to digitally integrate the vehicle into the film production. That was harder than I thought. Because both the film people and the designers wanted to represent technology authentically in this only digital vehicle. The electrically driven wheels not only had to look like high-tech from the future, they also had to "work," as it were, explains Frank Rimili, head designer of the film project. “Ultimately, we were able to project our design philosophy perfectly into the fictional future world of film.” The film is based on the bestseller of the same name and has a first-class cast. With Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford, among others. - "Ender's Game" will be released in German cinemas on October 24th. Trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jllWsCVn8Tc#t=106
