Jake Scott directs new short film for Ford

October 17, 2016

Ford have enlisted the help of Jake Scott to make an 8-minute short film to launch their new Ford Edge.

Le Fantôme stars Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen (Star Wars, Hannibal, Casino Royal) as an enigmatic stranger sent to assassinate a couple in witness protection before the Ford Edge reveals their true identity.

The film was written by GTB’s creative heads Julian Watt and Bryn Attewell and shot in Croatia, using the same location as ‘Game of Thrones’.

“This, for me, was always really a love story, between a human and a car. As unlikely as that may seem, then consider the pairing of Le Fantôme and the Ford Edge. Bizarre perhaps, but unquestionably memorable. What a character & what a car!” said Jake Scott.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to help launch the New Edge and be part of such an exciting campaign. It’s a beautiful car that deserves a beautiful film. I hope you enjoy it.” said Mads Mikkelsen.
