With the amount of media that has been generated, it wouldn’t be surprising if we saw more of this type of work. Great job combining elements, including movement and archive footage.

Check out this nearly six-minute spot shot on 35mm film on location in India. (Due warning: there is a spot of nudity) Directed by Bruno Aveillan, it is loosely based on the story of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and the creation of the Taj Mahal, which was built for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. If all […]
The pace of society, and how we deal with it in our lives, has continued to increase. We want shorter, more focused media. In addition, the way we consume media has changed with the times.

I love the way this piece blithely tells a sub-story while developing its main thread almost casually in the background. A radical use of the fish-eye makes the feel of the piece more casual, giving the special effects a very different flavor. It’s tricky to blend slick graphics with low-brow filming style and this piece […]
