Move, Learn and Eat

on August 5, 2011 by Tim Comments

Remember WalkUSA’s animation of the Walk Across America guy? These mates here have walked across the globe and assembled their shots into one continuous experience of our beautiful world. The three films have exploded on Vimeo, add to the view count of Move, Learn and Eat and wait for them to appear (modified) in an ad for STA Travel (specialist for student travel) soon. Read more…

Challenge the Fastlane with Sony Ericsson Xperia

on August 4, 2011 by Tim Comments

If you thought Daft Punk’s gear looked cool, wait till you see these skaters don some funky cardboard helmets. Their only chance of seeing ahead is a visor in the shape of a Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo phone. Don’t try this at home, kids! Read more…

Nokia N8 – Gulp

on August 4, 2011 by Tim Comments

After scoring big with the smallest animation ever shot (Dot), the Nokia N8 campaign returns with the largest stop motion set ever built. Their world record attempt called Gulp was shot on a real Nokia N8 and is the beautiful story of a fisherman being gobbled up by a monstrous fish – and luckily being spat out again. The whole endeavor is pretty massive. Read more…

HTC ChaCha pushes your Facebook button

on July 31, 2011 by Tim Comments

I guess there is no better post to follow my previous one about staying off Facebook. HTC’s smartphone ‘ChaCha’ wants you to share like there’s no tomorrow, simply by pressing the magic f-button at the bottom of its keyboard. And naturally HTC are promoting this feature within facebook itself. Install their app and ‘see what happens when you push it’ - the result is an extreme version of your own facebook existence. Have a look at my own version in which my dumb profile photo fits serendipitously. Read more…

The Man without a Facebook

on July 31, 2011 by Tim Comments

This upcoming movie explores in unflinching detail what it means to be out of the loop, to not exist on Facebook, to have to say everything face to face. To write with pen and paper and simply be ‘untaggable’.

As the blurb says “Once in a while a friend request will come along that will change your life forever.” And in case the trailer seems oddly familiar in its storyline, have a look at Mel Gibson directing and starring in a similar flick a while back.

OK Go: All is not Lost

on July 28, 2011 by Tim Comments

Google, OK Go and director Trish Sie have teamed up to create a spandex-heavy video clip for “All Is Not Lost”, the 7th single off their 2010 album “Of the Blue Colour of the Sky”.

If you fancy your own message to appear in the video, head over to All Is Not Lo.st It is only accessible through the Chrome browser, as part of Google’s strategy of exclusive web experiences. Using HTML5’s canvas technology you can marvel at browser windows resizing and milling about.

Isaiah vs Fabio: You decide the New Old Old Spice Guy

on July 27, 2011 by Tim Comments

As you saw from the Mexican wrestling-style announcement, the duel between two Old Spice Guys is a ‘hand to hand in the bath’ (mano a mano in el baño) affair. We were promised a duel of wits, long flowing hair versus presidential abdomen, taking place in the ‘Internet Arena‘.  Having started at high noon in the US, both guys are now employing the best practices established by legendary Responses, working personal angles with influencers and courting link communities such as Reddit. Have a peek at the two “Rules of Engagement” videos and click on the overlay of your liking.

Snickers Sessions: You are not You

on July 17, 2011 by Tim Comments

Snickers in Australia are opening their global creative “You’re not you when you’re hungry” and applying it to music. Electro act Miami Horror and hip hop artist Phrase are challenged to cover a song from a completely different genre, and thereby be seen in a completely different light.

Every vote will raise a dollar for Heaps Decent – a not-for-profit initiative dedicated to finding and nurturing the creativity of underprivileged and Indigenous young people. The first 500 newsletter-signups get the songs for free, all other proceeds again go to Heaps Decent.

Samsung Space Balloon: tweet at 100,000 feet

on July 15, 2011 by Tim Comments

Samsung Mobile Japan decided to honour their Galaxy S II with a proper space project, sending the phone into our stratosphere today. The Galaxy is held by an astronaut doll tied to a space balloon. In contrast to Toshiba’s Space Chair project from 2009, this endeavour is more than a film. Produced by the mighty Bascule, it literally tests the outer limits of social media and shows that Android phones can indeed go further than iPhones. With Space Balloon you can watch a live Ustream (on your own Galaxy if you wish) and see your own tweets at 100,000 feet.

on July 14, 2011 by Tim Comments

Fleet Commander is the result of a 3 year long project at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory by computer science grad student Arthur Nishimoto. It turns an already impressive 20-foot multitouch screen into a gigantic strategy game.
