German artist, Cornelia Konrads goes around the world installing gravity-defying artworks in natural settings like public parks and private gardens. 

Her large-scale installations consist of objects like logs and fences suspended mid-air, giving off the illusion of weightlessness created by an “invisible” force.

We were asked to create a film about bespoke tailoring for the Handmade issue of Wallpaper*. They hooked us up with the famous italian tailors of Brioni.

^ Very nice.


In hopes of inspiring people with disabilities to take up para-sports to remain active, ad agency BBDO Toronto created an amazing commercial for the Canadian Paralympic Committee. 

The entire commercial was filmed in a single continuous shot without any CGI effects. 

In the commercial, an amputee runner (portrayed by Canadian paralympian Alister McQueen) is shown running past all the obstacles he had to overcome since his disability due to a car accident.



The making of.

A conversation with Paul Rand.


A short film by Preston McLanahan interviewing Paul Rand, the great American Modernist designer. Filmed in 1996, shortly before his death he talks about his process, art, aesthetics, and design in general. A very inspirational video and soon to be released on DVD.




And Milton Glasser.




And Saul Bass gives you the straight skinny.

Patient research work involving more than 5 thousand photographs resulted in a 1 minute film that AlmapBBDO created to advertise Getty Images, the world leading image database for creating and distributing visual contents. The film is surprising when showing 873 images in 15 images per second, sufficient speed to transform the series into a video that, without any text, tells a beautiful story. All photos, without any exceptions, are from the Getty Images archives.

Copywriter Sophie Schoenburg and art director Marcus Kotlhar worked 6 months researching images, improving the script and building each scene so they would not only be understood, but would also touch viewers. 

For this creation team, the purpose was to adhere to the concept that Getty Images has so many images that anybody is capable of telling any story they want by only using their archives. In the film "Do amor ao Bingo em 873 imagens" [From love to Bingo in 873 images], a storyteller in the corner of the screen describes the images used. The Getty Images logo appears at the end of the story, but the storyteller continues to turn until reaching the exact number of images in the Getty Images archive.





Should I let this thread die?
