Default BMW Films

BMW Films just released the newest installment of The Hire series! Grab it at www.bmwfilms.com

For those unfamiliar with the series, The Hire is a series of short (~7 minute), downloadable films featuring BMWs in various settings. Most are decent, some are downright fantastic. My favorite so far is "Star."

I would have to agree with you on that one. Star is quite funny too!

Star is by far the best. hehe I have the entire first collection on mpg. I had a coworker that had a dvd he got with the movies on them so i ripped them to mpg.

I think i saw a link at the top of the page for season 1 films. Try that for the older ones.

Star is definitly the best one of these.
They had all of the cars from the original set of BMW Films in the BMW National workshop right after they filmed them. The cars were all really messed up. The X-5 had bullet holes in it. The M5 was a total loss. After the big jump the struts were pushed through the strut towers. I heard that upper management was not very happy about the condition of the cars. I think they had thought they would be able to fix them up and resell them. Oops

I just found out about these films from this thread, and only saw "Star" so far, due to everyone'* comments. It was pretty good. It should be hard to beat.

Peter...you should check them all out if you can, either get them from the bmwfilms site, or Kazaa. The only one that is really hard to get was my fave one...The Follow staring Mickey Rourke, Forrest Whittaker and some incredible latin woman...shes a model or something

The music and filming is beautiful. But it was taken down due to contractual agreements between the BIG Hollywood names in the film...but I got it
