Last call for BMW Films! That’s the gist of an e-mail BMW is sending around to registered users, telling them the granddaddy of online branded entertainment (and father of a thousand brand-sponsored film festivals) will come down October 21. Since the “The Hire” series launched, it’s logged 100 million views, the company said. The take-down comes four months after the automaker parted ways with Fallon, the agency behind the pioneering film series.
