"Every year DTS creates a promotional video for CES in Las Vegas. This year, the commercial production company I’m with wanted to do something different. They wanted to make something that people would replay, something that would stimulate people’s minds when they view it on their computer screen.
I think that inspiration comes from a lot of places. In the case of myself growing up in the Internet generation, much of my inspiration comes from there. It’s a hobby of mine — scouring the web for the newest and most original piece of work. So when I stumbled across this video, I instantly wanted to try it for myself." By Ross Ching

To mark World Water Day, on March 22nd Solidarités International and its agency BDDP Unlimited will roll out a campaign to build awareness of the scourge of undrinkable water.
Today, it is estimated that 3.6 million people, including 1.5 million children under the age of 5, die every year of diseases borne by undrinkable water, making it the world’s leading cause of death.
Yet the public isn’t aware of it and political leaders do not demonstrate the drive it takes to end the terrible deaths. The campaign calls on journalists to spread awareness of this scourge and appeal to readers to sign a petition that will be personally handed to the French president during the 6th World Water Forum in March 2012. To evoke the silent and invisible threat of unhealthy water, BDDP Unlimited opted for a minimalist approach that is both visually appealing and surprising, using water and ink exclusively. The spot shows the power of ink to reveal the invisible.
The spot, created by BDDP Unlimited, produced by Hush and directed by Clément Beauvais, a young director, illustrator, musician and photographer. His multiple talents and mastery of various techniques enabled him to both create the drawings and direct the spot. The campaign will be seen from mid-March on TV, in cinemas, on the Internet and in print. A dedicated web site, votregouttedeau.org, will gather signatures for the petition.

"Pretty straightforward technique really - I just had a projector set up on a tripod, pointing down at the zoetrope from above, and then masked off each circle and spent a few days synching it up to the music. It's good to finally get some sort of finished film out of this zoetrope malarkey, says Retchy (aka Graeme Hawkins).
An innovative, smart way of projection.

"In January 2010, we sat together in earnest to look back at years of working together. We wanted to rediscover our inspirations for getting into the industry and identify the things that were killing our inspiration. We talked about what stories we had to tell and what emotions we wanted people to feel. We all agreed that our best work had yet to be conceived. Out of that conversation was born the idea of creating a visual manifesto. Each statement in this manifesto is a short work that stands on its own, but together the collection of works will form a vision of who we are and where our passions lie. Each of the works is also conceived and led by one of the artists on our team, who pitches it to the group. The work is then executed with the support of the entire studio.
The first of these works, entitled 'SEED' is now complete. Our longtime collaborator John Black of Cypheraudio: cypheraudio.com worked closely with us early on in the process to help establish the mood of the piece. As the visuals evolved, so too did the sound, going through several re-inventions before settling on the final. Please Check back to this page for more installments in this series of works!"

Tronic tapped into their architecture backgrounds for the film they created for Herzog & de Meuron’s 57-story hi-rise residential tower in Tribeca. Combining a live action helicopter shoot with extensive CG modeling, the film shows the poetic beauty of how the building was conceived, beginning with the elements of each floor descending from the Manhattan sky and landing into place on top of the Anish Kapoor sculpture.
It was written & animated by Alexander Gellner while the track and sound design was Niklas a Kröger's delight. Inspired by a poem by Johannesson James Maratown.

TRUELY, THE FIRE INSIDE OF YOU!

Kinect Flock is a quick app we wrote using the user tracking and depth mapping abilities of the XBox Kinect for Golan Levin's Interactive art + Computational design studio.
We created a particle system that exhibits flocking/swarming behavior when the user is moving, and flocks to and fills out the user's silhouette when they are standing still. As a result we have a simulation that ebbs and flows between the recognizable and the abstract.
Built using Cinder + OpenNI + NITE + Xbox Kinect
