Zika virus is no longer a local Brazilian issue, is a now a global threat. The main objective of this campaign was to raise awareness around the cause locally and offer freely a new option to fight the Aedes Aegypti mosquito that carries this disease. Brazil has been bombarded with headlines against the Zika virus for the past few months. All major TV channels, radios, magazines and newspapers were talking about it.

Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: The Mosquito Killer Billboard by NBS, Brazil

But the organized society, in an overall point of view, were not doing much to fight the mosquito and the population in general relies on the government to win this inglorious battle. The big idea was to use the only media that is on the streets side by side with the population, the out of home media, promote the cause and actually be effective to kill mosquitos on the way. After some studies we discovered that the totems installed almost in every sidewalk of the city could be adapted and transformed in the perfect media to release the project. Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: The Mosquito Killer Billboard by NBS, Brazil

To play on the aspect of adaptation, which is the main theme of the production company, I visualised it by having a shape morph into different primitives to progress through a path of obstacles.

As the logo consists of two triangles, one leaned against the other, I baked this into the animation by ending the piece with the shape morphing into a pyramid and merging with another.

2016 Vega Digital Awards Canopus Winner: Alice Through The Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror” by Part IV, United States

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 4.00.09 PM

Company : Part IV

Project Title : Alice Through The Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror”

Client: Walt Disney Pictures

Category : Innovative / Experimental

Country : United States

Disney challenged us to find a way to promote “Alice Through The Looking Glass”. We conceived a magical mirror, using cutting edge face-tracking technology to transform anyone into a beloved Alice character. We built custom kiosks that traveled all over the world, including a two-month residency at Disneyland. Users were emailed a photo & Instagram video of their experience.

alice_feature_test

‘Walt Disney Pictures challenged us to find a way to promote their new film, Alice Through The Looking Glass, at the 2015 D23 Convention in Anaheim, CA.  We had a 40′ x 40′ space, a blank canvas to build our own little corner of Wonderland.

We conceived a magical mirror, using cutting edge face tracking technology to instantly transform anyone into a beloved Alice character.

Our goal was to not just use a simple 2D overlay, but to fully transform the user with both makeup and 3D elements, tracked perfectly in real-time.  And create a cool shareable takeaway from the experience.’

p4_s2_feature_1920x1280_clean_2

‘We began by designing a whimsical Wonderland inspired space with plush grass, cobblestone pathways, mushrooms, topiaries, and costumes from the film.  To best accommodate the anticipated line for this attraction at D23, we decided to build four of our Wonder Mirror kiosks to minimize wait time.

Each kiosk had a larger mirror with a duplicate feed placed on the outside so friends, family, and passing fans could stand and watch same the magical results from users’ screens inside the kiosks.

With our designs completed, we partnered with Premiere Displays to build and finesse our vision into a reality.  The physical build for Alice began with dozens of artisans hand crafting our little corner of Wonderland.’

‘We quickly learned that this style of a fully immersive face tracking execution hadn’t really been accomplished before. There were several examples of just 2D texture wrapping and 3D paste-on head replacement, but nothing as robust and transformation we were envisioning.

After several months down the rabbit hole in research and development with multiple cameras, trackers, and hardware solutions, we decided to build own custom software to interface with raw facial tracking data.

This custom application allowed us to position our occluded 3D elements and pair them with our texture wrap makeup effects for a true first-to-market experience, and a revolutionary progression of a traditional “photo booth,” now truly allowing real-time augmented transformation.’

2016 Vega Digital Awards Canopus Winner: La Mer Part 2 by Psyop, United States

Vega Awards - Lamer

Company : Psyop

Project Title : La Mer Part 2

Client: Estee Lauder

Category : Online Video | Animation

Country : United States

La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface. Inspired by Dr. Max Huber, we tell a story of one traveler who represents us all.

Lamer Muse Awards

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

Vega Awards - Lamer

Director Marie Hyon on creating for Estee Lauder:

“In the spirit of Albert Einstein, we wanted to create a film that will challenge our imagination. We love the story of Dr. Max Huber and the myth behind his journey to find the cure to heal his burnt skin. We believe the myth is more powerful than the reality. Our film focuses on the poetic legendary tale rather than the reality and its facts. Besides, reality leaves nothing to the imagination. For the first La Mer film, we focused on introducing Dr. Max Huber and telling his story. For the follow up film, we focus mainly on the fascination of exploring the unknown.

Lamer Muse Awards

Curiosity is the key to staying young. And the wonders of nature inspire the curious ones to seek out its secrets, and question what is beyond or beneath the surface. La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface. Inspired by Dr. Max Huber, we will tell a story of one traveler who represents us all.”
