We got time

All kinds of awesome. No post-production: All done in camera.

All the animations for the music video to Moray McLaren's 'We Got Time' were created, drawn and coloured by director David Wilson. From their description:
All the animations seen in the video were created IN CAMERA.

Using both praxinoscopes and the technique of matching up the frame rate of the spinning record to that of the camera, no computer super-imposing was used; what you see is what rolled off the camera. The transitions between each section of animation was created by simply cutting or wiping between the bits of footage. All the animations were created, drawn and coloured by the director David Wilson. Produced by Blinkink: and the full credits are here.

'We got time' by Moray McLaren:
The making of is really worth a look:

"Making of" Directed, Edited and Animated by Tom Kingsley, On-site Shoot Footage by Tim Keeling.

There's additional photography, artwork and credits on David Wilson's web site.

So creative. So inspiring.

The Titanium should go to Obama '08

Contagious Magazine (one of my faves) just asked, "Thinking of our predictions for the Titanium Lions at Cannes... any top tips?"

Without a doubt, Obama '08 was by far the best campaign of the year, maybe the best of this millenium so far. Iconic, successful, effective, creative, and historic are just a few words that spring to mind. Add to that the fact that Obama '08 leveraged cross-media platforms and activated people behind a true movement that had never been seen before, and you've got one hell-of-a campaign.

Can a presidential campaign win a Titanium Lion or other advertising awards? To be honest, I'm not sure if that's "allowed" by the folks in Cannes. But if one could, Obama '08 should sweep 'em all.

Narada: The new Star Trek ARG

Alternate reality games (ARG) are wonderfully engaging ways to activate a existing fans, loyal advocates and early adopters. They are also fantastic ways to draw new people into a storyline or activity, as the best ARGs are inherently viral and social by nature. There are several excellent examples of this type of online game/campaign which have been done over the past year or so. The Lost Experience and The Clown Travel Agency done for The Dark Knight which I wrote about last year are two good ones to check out.

Today, Bill came across what looks to be a new Star Trek ARG.

I love J.J. Abrams, and I've always loved Star Trek ... The new film launches in May, and whatever this thing is, it looks pretty cool and obviously took some time to dream up.

Connecting the dots is hard with good ARGs, but Trekkies love a good hunt. ;-) One of the first pieces of content to surface was this video, showing someone speaking in French who apparently found a 'device' in Paris on La Rue de la Federation a few days ago...

On a random site, scattered amongst a gallery of photos from a Star Trek party, are several photos like this one which contain a URL written on the wall:

These are the URLs:

The web addresses are binary code for "Ca", "Al" and "O" ... abbrviations on the Periodic Table for Calcium, Aluminium and Oxygen ... Here are links to the full-size photos from


The element symbols show up in the videos, but who knows what the hell they mean. In his email, Bill wrote:
follow a tonne of awesomely cone head type video deconstructing, google maps following, secret site unearthings & the like here, what's immediately noticeable about this is that it's f*cking difficult & rightly so. this is for Trekkies after all : )

i digg this sh*t, enjoy.
Me too. Thanks dude!

In the forum posts (which explain things much more than I'm doing here) you learn that this image which is in the videos on the binary web sites:

... is actually an image of "Narada", the name of the ship in the prequel comic:

I wonder where it goes from here ...

Coffee is for closers

This is one of my all-time favourite clips. The play is awesome, and Baldwin absolutely nails Blake. If you haven't read or seen Glengarry Glen Ross, I highly recommend it.

What does Be Better mean to you?

The following is a short break, brought to you by iris Digital.

To celebrate the launch of "Be Better", iris agencies around the globe have each made a short film of what it means to them. Some are weird, some are wonderful and some defy rational description. They're all being screened on the iris web site, each day, over the next 2 weeks.

The iris Digital film is above and is intended as a bit of a break in the action. For the others, visit the iris web site.

BMW knows today's date

BMW has revealed a smart new piece of technology that will allow drivers to hitch a ride from the car in front via a magnetic beam, as part of an April fool print campaign created by WCRS. The "magnetic tow technology", which the automaker claims was devised by its head of innovation Herr Noitt All, means BMW drivers can lock on to the car in front, allowing them to take their foot off the accelerator and turn off the engine. Consumers interested in the product should email for more information. (via Brand Republic)

When you email you receive the following email:
Thank you for emailing the BMW Innovation team to find out more about our exciting Magnetic Tow Technology.
Today is in fact April 1st, and if you haven’t realised already, Uve Vollenvorit of our Innovation team would like to let you know that you have in fact, fallen for it!

We regret to inform you that Magnetic Tow Technology cannot be purchased with your new BMW at this time…..or indeed at any time in the near future. It sounded like a good idea but as we all know, there is no such thing as a free ride.
BMW would like to wish you a very happy April Fools Day.
