O Positive's Jonathan Klein Directs "#pickingteams" For Audi
Audi Global’s new online film #pickingteams sets FC Bayern Munich’s soccer stars loose on the streets of New York City. With the help of Audi connect, it’s Thiago and Boateng vs. Ribery and Vidal, picking the best civilians for a one-off game. O Positive’s Jonathan Klein directs this run-and-gun crowd piece for agency BBH Sport.
“Letting Audis and four of the best soccer players in the world loose on the streets of New York City was a wild affair,” Klein said. “But that kind of spontaneity and spirit is a gift to any filmmaker and could never be replicated regardless of how much planning you have.”
