Firm400 Media was invited by our good friend Musa Tjahjono, Head Designer of West Coast Customs where we went on assignment capturing the festivities held at the West Coast Customs facility in Burbank. The Blue Carpet displayed several amazing builds from the custom shop including Justin Bieber's Fat Bottom Liberty Walk Ferrari 458 and Will.I.Am's Tesla widebody sports car designed by Musa.
Musa gave us the insight on this exclusive Tesla design for Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas. The creation process would begin with conceptual art and the incorporation of 3-D design for the lighting and exterior. Such a futuristic work of art!
