Ridley Scott directed a short film for Hennessy X.O. called The Seven Worlds. It’s a visually striking short that takes the audience on a “journey through the ‘Seven Worlds’ of Hennessy X.O.” As you’ll see, Ridley Scott’s visual and directing style blasts with the crisp visuals that we are shown.
It is a brilliant four-minutes long short film, but there’s also a 60-second version that will air during the Oscars. I added both of those video for you, as well as behind-the-scenes look at the making of the short film.
Here’s a description for the short:
Seven tasting notes, like seven unique worlds to explore. Seven oneiric stories to convey the incredible richness and complexity of this cognac. A richness contained in each and every drop of #HennessyXO.
The Seven Worlds are creative interpretations of each tasting note, described by Hennessy’s Comité de Dégustation as illustrations of Hennessy X.O’s taste and feel: Sweet Notes, Rising Heat, Spicy Edge, Flowing Flame, Chocolate Lull, Wood Crunches. Culminating in Infinite Echo. These seven notes are envisioned by Ridley Scott as individual worlds each brought to life through wondrous and extreme physiography.
Complementing the idea that ‘Each drop of Hennessy X.O. is an Odyssey’, legendary director Ridley Scott creates an epic sensory voyage that explores seven notes in a surreal narrative.
