TRUE COLORS

Posted in Film + Video, Music, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2010 by bendey14

True Colors isn’t your everyday stop motion video. It combines multiplying cubes and spray paint that seems to have a mind of it’s own among a vacant warehouse. All digital-effect free. Which may not sound all that impressive, but just wait til you watch it.

Props to Quintessenz Creation for amazing work!

Guerilla x Influencer Marketing Activation

Posted in Commercials + Virals, Film + Video, Packaging, Products with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2010 by bendey14

This a quick video showing some great geurilla marketing for a preview release of Lost Planet 2 by ALT TERRAIN.

The video game copies were frozen in blocks of ice and placed outside select stores in a handful of cities around the U.S. The concept arose from the videogame’s narrative of an “ice planet” that is melting and breaking apart. Neat idea.

Big Bang Big Boom

Posted in Artwork, Film + Video, Photography, Sculpture with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2010 by bendey14

You’ve hopefully seen a few of these stop-motion animation videos before, but if you haven’t–step your game up: MUTO and COMBO.

This latest masterpiece from the talented folks over at BLU, is absolutely incredible. I would advise everyone to set aside 10 minutes for this one, you won’t be disappointed

…Big Bang Big Boom is an unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life … and how it could probably end.

Nike “Abuku”

Posted in Artwork, Commercials + Virals, Film + Video, Products, Sculpture with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2010 by bendey14

I realize I talk a lot about Nike, but how can’t I when they keep being involved in such cool stuff like this?!

The new Nike Air Max 360’s apparently have more air pocketed between the soles and feet than any other shoe. W+K Tokyo LAB came up with the great idea of showing this human/nature relationship with the “Nike Abuku” (which means “bubble” in Japanese).

Instead of me explaining the process poorly, check out the video below which includes some nice clips of it’s making.

UAC Viral: “Inhale, Exhale”

Posted in Artwork, Commercials + Virals, Film + Video, Graphic Design, Music, Photography, Print, UAC Updates with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2010 by bendey14

Figured I should get up on this whole “viral video marketing” biz. Here’s the first official ad for Underground Art Concepts. Nothing spectacular; just a seizure-inducing clip of projects and artwork I’ve done in the past few years.

Hope you enjoy, and try not to pass out.

Inhale, Exhale:

Bleed Your Colors – Nike Sportswear

Posted in Commercials + Virals, Interactive, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2010 by bendey14

Really unique commercial for Nike Sportswear. Kind of a blend between an old video game and a Tim & Eric Awesome Show skit. I thought it was awesome, but then again I’m a huge fan of soccer, funny music, and things that leave you wondering “WTF did I just watch?”  What do you guys think, too weird for Nike? Or a nice change of scenery for the sneaker giant?

Confessions On Life, Death, & God

Posted in Commercials + Virals, Creative Campaigns, Film + Video, Products with tags , , , , , , on March 24, 2010 by bendey14

Postsecret is a popular website/blog created by Frank Warren that collects revealing confessions anonymously written on postcards.  The success of the site has opened the door to “Confessions on Life, Death, and God,” a book showcasing some of Postsecrets favorites.  An intimate video was created to coincide with the book’s release, which may seem similar to a few other videos you’ve seen on this site.  Benjamin Reece, the director and creator of the “Fifty People, One Question” videos has been working with Postsecret, Crush + Lovely, & Deltree to produce a really touching video.  Check it out below.

AIDS Graffiti [NSFWish]

Posted in Artwork, Commercials + Virals, Creative Campaigns with tags , , , , , , , on March 22, 2010 by bendey14

The dick.

It’s a funny thing really… just hangin’ there… keepin’ it real–of course.  Always seems to end up doing it’s own thing, hah, am I right–or am I right?  The male tool of sexual awesomeness is essentially a mainstay in pop-culture comedy…

…but it’s also every man’s secret weapon of mass destruction population.  Plus, nobody thinks gonorrhea is as cool as it used to be.

I’m not sure where this ad was on the air, but I’m guessing Europe?  Maybe just a viral?  Either way, it’s still hilarious with an everyday customary setting (for public restroom veterans) that communicates a very important (ideal) decision for anyone out there gettin’ down without a crown.

Don’t be silly, protect your Willie.

Coke Happiness Machine

Posted in Commercials + Virals, Products with tags , , , , , , , on February 1, 2010 by bendey14

Coca-cola recently released a viral titled the “Happiness Machine” that shows the iconic drink dispenser being installed in what looks like a college library.  If you were wondering, happiness ensues.  A pretty great idea, especially for a viral, although the human hands coming out of the tray at the bottom might have started off pretty creepy.  They were also able to find some Kid Cudi and John Legend look-a-likes at 1:05 and 1:07, lol.
