A Filmmaker's Dramatic Spec Ad for Google Glass Is Getting Lots of Fans, Including Google

'Captions' shows the power of translation

Writer, director and editor Joe Sill of digital studio Everdream Pictures describes the cinematic clip as a "branded content spec ad," much like the team's earlier, unofficial Tesla spot, "Modern Spaceship," whose admirers included even Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

And sure enough, the new video has also gotten some top-level corporate love, with the official Google Glass page giving it a share on Facebook.
