It’s just as well Northen Kingdom are from Sweden, the home of IKEA. Handy for picking up a new awards cabinet every other day. One of the many great examples of work is the the Teamgeist. To create a buzz about the new German football team’s strip they create an interactive game. The look and feel of the film used would not look out of place in any Hollywood movie. We could blab on about them but best to let them tell us what they do. It’s quite inspiring:
“Storytelling is our trade. We provide unique interactive communication. Connecting brands with people. Creating emotional bonds and experiences that make people feel, reflect and discuss. We work methodically and are always excited about new ideas. When we work with you, we’re a focused and passionate team. From the wildest concepts to the finest details, passion, perfection and innovation are at the heart of everything we do. If you want to break boundaries with your project, working with us is a good start.”
And please, please, please check out their amazing showreel on Vimeo.
This movie showing the known universe created by the American Museum of Natural History really makes us feel a little small.
The guys at Wrangler Jeans must of been chucking around a few good ideas before they came up with this nice site with a extra nice dash of Flash. Can’t help but think this would be really effective if it is was used for a banner campaign. Which it probably was.
Hilarious website from Sweden to thank people for paying their TV license (although I’m not sure everyone will be thrilled with the production values of the movie). Yes, you can make yourself a hero. Best to upload a stupid picture of yourself picking your nose or something (now who would do such a thing?) and sit back and watch some very clever video/flash integration thingy (hope I’m not being too technical).
After seeing Avatar and being quite blown away by it’s amazing CGI I came across Alex Roman’s The Third & The Seventh. This got me thinking. In true Harry Hill TV Burp style who’d win in a fight? I mean, don’t get me wrong, Pandora is pretty cool but I’m not sure I ever felt like I was fully transported into the world. It felt a little like being in spectacular animation. An amazing animation (especially the glowing forest foliage – wow) but an animation nonetheless. Alex Roman’s abstract piece left me in true awe. And I’ll bet it cost a fraction of the big Hollywood budget.

Enter the truly mind blowing, bizarre world of JimCarrey.com – a flash heavy (well, super heavy) site that offers a rich cinematic experience that pretty much sums up Jim Carrey in a couple of clicks. The whole website is made up of a montage of expertly crafted scenes from his movies. Everything has been covered here from Ace Ventura to The Cable Guy to A Series of Unfortunate events and each section is a montage. I know some will balk at the Flash rich site but when you come to look at Jim Carrey’s own website you want something a little bit different. If you want a detailed history of his carer and movie roles then get to IMDB. If you want to experience Jim Carrey, the movie star, then come here. If there is a criticism it’s that the content has been compromised to fit within the Flash scenes but all is forgiven once you click from one section to another and experience one of the roller coaster transitions.

Love great title sequences (sometimes more than the movies they are for) and we love the blog The Art of The Title Sequence. An incredible amount of inspiration on the site which features title sequences from modern films such as Coraline to classic favourites such as Saul Bass’ Vertigo titles. All videos are also available in a iphone friendly quicktime movie format. Which makes us love this site even more!
