Calango’s entry for the ‘Swatch X Mtv Playgrounds’ competition. An animation that tells the story of ‘The Chronoverse’, a new perception of time.
During ancient history, the earth was presumed to be flat. Later, astrologists discovered the spherical shape of the planet. This radical new concept required such a new way of thinking, that it was incomprehensible for the majority of the human population.
A same degree of perceptual shift occurred during the discovery of the chronoverse. Untill 2064, mankind knew only one past, one present and one future.
Past, wich consists of nothing more than a log of occurred events stored in the human brain, called memories.
Present, a constant flowing point in time, separating past from future.
And future, a mere collection of expectations and assumptions.
All three sorted along one horizontal axis.
During research on the behavior of colliding particles, scientist stumbled upon the existence of multiple points in time, occupying the same physical space.
This led to an entirely new concept of time, called the chronoverse.
Events could no longer be indexed along a single axis. To index events in this new time-concept, a Y and a Z axis were added to convert the traditional timeline into a 3 dimensional timegrid.
Common ways of displaying time became obsolete. From that year on, time would be indicated with a coordinate, pinpointing an event along the three axes in the grid.

It’s well known that Hollywood gets ‘inspired’ by foreign films once in a while and produces a bigger budget remake. To most people ‘Die Hard’ is, without doubt, a Hollywood creation. However, what if the original inspiration was drawn from classic Nouvelle Vague cinema? Could it be true that the Bruce Willis action movie was ‘inspired’ by a 60s French film about an Inspector Jean MeQlain, who is toyed with by a mysterious women, setting him tasks via various phone booths across the Riviera. In its latest viral campaign Stella Artois 4% reveals the truth to the modern public. Not only was the 1961 classic ‘Dial Hard’ shamelessly remade as ‘Die Hard’ but ‘8 mile’ and the hit TV series ‘24’ also took ‘inspiration’ from long forgotten 1960s European classics; ‘8 Kilométre’ and ‘Vingt-Quatre heures’. When watching these films, one thing becomes clear, the heroes, with their French accents and laidback attitudes are a lot smoother than their modern versions. In the age of the internet nothing is hidden, and with the help of Stella Artois 4% every American re-make of a classic European film shall be exposed. After all, we did it first, and we did it smoother.
