UNICEF | Child Labour by Minamotion wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Company : Minamotion

Client : UNICEF

Project Title : Child Labour

Category : VIDEO | Nonprofit / Religious

Country : United States

Children of Labor is a stop-motion PSA geared towards the children of labor across the globe. In our execution, we experimented with stop-motion animation and cel animation. We believe it would be appropriate to construct our set out of white foam. This is because such setting would match the cold, winter mood with added high contrast lighting.

The narrative for this animation involves a young child working in a clothing factory in the middle of a city. The child has been working long hours. Then, the child waits at a bus stop waiting to get home. Eventually, a school bus comes to save the child from the destructive work environment. The bus symbolizes a hopeful future for the child. A future that involves an education.

Canopus Winner: Don’t Eat Me Sealife Awareness Campaign by International Technological University

School : International Technological University

Project Title : Don’t Eat Me Sealife Awareness Campaign

Category : Digital Marketing | Branding / CI

Country : United States

2016 Vega Digital Awards: Don't Eat Me Sealife Awareness Campaign

Global fishing is rapidly destroying the population of ocean habitats. Due to the demand for seafood, loss of habitat and unsustainable fishing practices, three quarters of the world’s fisheries has significantly depleted. Fish populations like tuna, cod, halibut and haddock in the North Atlantic Ocean have declined to one-third of what they used to be. Seafood is consumed faster than the rate of replenishment.

2016 Vega Digital Awards: Don't Eat Me Sealife Awareness Campaign

Due to the demand, large, profit-seeking commercial fleets have developed more sophisticated fishing equipment and techniques to exploit the sea. A lot of these fishing methods are highly destructive to the ocean’s habitat. Some techniques include bottom trawling that involves dragging nets across the ocean floor, destroying everything along the way. If this continues, it will harm the food chain of natural habitats.

Innovative Movie Promo Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Part IV promotes the movie, Alice through the Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror” in an innovative and interactive way. This movie promo is the Canopus Winner at the 2016 Vega Digital Awards. 

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Company : Part IV

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

Client: Walt Disney Pictures

Category : Innovative / Experimental

Country : United States

The Challenge

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.

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

‘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.

The Idea

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 of course, to create a cool shareable takeaway from the experience.’

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

The Execution

‘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. Overall, this creates a true first-to-market experience. It is a revolutionary progression of a traditional “photo booth,” now truly allowing real-time augmented transformation.’

An Imaginative Film for Estee Lauder Grabs Canopus Award

La Mer Part 2 Online Advertising by Psyop Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

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.

“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

La Mer Part 2 Online Advertising by Psyop Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

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.

La Mer Part 2 Online Advertising by Psyop Wins 2016 Vega Digital 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.”
