Vasava Spans the Globe for Louis Vuitton

aaaah2 650x409 Vasava Spans the Globe for Louis Vuitton

Communication studio Vasava and fashion illustrator Jordi Labanda recently collaborated on a series of short films to promote Louis Vuitton’s m-commerce in the U.S., Japan, and Canada, and e-commerce in Brazil.

“We created a simple story that shows a customer ordering Vuitton goods and, all of a sudden the Pont Alexandre III takes off from Paris, crosses the ocean, and the package is delivered to the woman,” said Vasava’s Enric Godes. “During the trip, different monuments and landmarks from the two countries pop up, lending an air of ‘Paris-fication’ to either the U.S., Japan, Canada, or Brazil.”

He noted that the aesthetic is one-hundred percent Labanda and Vasava’s challenge was to bring his illustrations to life with a retro feel and without too many fireworks: “We scanned in Jordi’s hand-painted elements and retouched them, built the scenery and created the Alexandre III bridge in 3D. We did the animation in Photoshop and After Effects.”

DIMENSIONS: A story about 3D animation

“Metaphysics: a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world.

How can we tell what is real and what is not?

3D animation, for example, is becoming more and more sophisticated with each passing year. In this short film combining live action and, you’ve guessed it, animation, one young man sits down to write a childhood friend a letter, describing just how this state of affairs came about.

It is almost as if he is convincing himself of his own argument, in order to give himself the courage to, once and for all, discover whether the world in which we live is true or not.” –

In the Berlin city everyone is going crazy for a viral new app. Anyone with a smartphone can play a sort of Super Mario Bros arcade game in Augmented Reality. In the game a coin corresponds to 0.01 Bitcoins. Citizens’ habits are tainted by the game. Coins are hidden all over the city, you can spot them just scanning around with your device, not always they are easy to grab. People started to leave their jobs in order to collect Coins in the streets. All over the city people are jumping and running around with their smartphones, trying to grab as many virtual coins as they can…
The shooting itself is been a game in the game: all the interviewees were asked to imagine the city as the app release happened for real and to answer thereby, sometimes they were even asked to play with it. Part of the work was dedicated to the Bitcoinkiez, a small Berlin district where local owners started to sell their products in Bitcoins through the Bitcoin Wallet App, which would be the “real” app to whom the Super Mario app is corresponding.

A Hairy Movie

ballpoint barber 01 650x365 A Hairy Movie

Two years ago, Peter Simon directed a stop-motion video called “Trim,” which showed a bald man becoming hairy in 38 seconds. Now working with the same model named Tom Offer-Westort, his newest film includes someone holding a pen who touches Westort’s head and face to magically add hair. It is similar to the first movie, but this one is better executed and more interesting to watch.
