– Campaign Includes Web Video, Microsites, Banner & Print Ads For Leading Immersive Video Advertising Provider –
Award-winning design & branding agency The Nation has partnered with Innovid, the leading immersive video technology platform, again on a new integrated campaign entitled, “Brands in Wonderland.” This comes on the heels of The Nation’s hugely successful “Cats” campaign for Innovid last year, which was a viral sensation.
A key tenet of the “Brands in Wonderland” campaign is a web video created by The Nation, which showcases Innovid’s engagement capabilities in immersive video advertising. Paying homage to “Alice in Wonderland,” an Alice character wanders through a computer-generated (CG) world full of noise and distraction from different types of media. She escapes through a tunnel of rainbow-colored 3D cubes rising like a dynamic mosaic, where Innovid greets her with the respite and peace of mind she’s looking for in the fragmented media landscape.
By combining the power of TV with the interactivity of the web, “Innovid’s iRoll formats push the boundaries of digital video, capturing consumer curiosity and driving them deeper into your brand,” says the voiceover. As the CG wonderland continues to unfold, Alice reimagines the possibilities for interactive engagement across multiple screens with Innovid. The video closes with the tagline, “Create curiosity, deliver wonder, measure enchantment.”
To view the video, please visit http://wp.wearethenation.com/portfolio/brandsinwonderland/.
“The Nation has proven itself to be a masterfully creative partner yet again,” says Maria Pousá, VP of Marketing at Innovid. “This campaign was about showcasing our high-level capabilities in creative execution, and the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ video fulfills our promise to the market with just the right amount of whimsical VFX magic and flair. They brought a deep understanding of how to convey our brand values through their production and design savvy. We’re really thrilled with the final product.”
The Nation handled the soup-to-nuts process, from concept, casting and production to editorial, CG and postproduction. The idea was to create a white world in post and seamlessly incorporate Alice into it. As a solution, The Nation shot the actress at a white cyclorama (cyc) studio instead of against a greenscreen.
“Shooting it this way allowed us to composite and add elements on top of the white environment without having to deal with the green reflections found in greenscreen settings,” explains Linus Lam, The Nation Partner/Managing Director. “Ultimately, simplifying the post process gave us more flexibility and helped us achieve the film more economically – yet we were still able to retain a high level of production to this piece.”
“Our greatest creative challenge was to combine the story of Alice with the story of Innovid,” concludes Alejandro Melguizo, The Nation Partner/Creative Director. “To do so, we had to strip down all of the Alice imagery without losing the essence. For example, the metaphor of Alice falling into the hole represents the curiosity of the consumer while Alice following the butterfly implies the interactivity and engagement that Innovid offers. We continually tried the keep the right balance between the two stories.”
Founded by Melguizo, Lam and Partner/Senior Art Director Ariel Eroles, The Nation specializes in creating award-winning and powerful visual identities, bringing brands to life across motion, print, digital, mobile and environmental touch-points. It recently celebrated its successful first year in business with a New York Emmy win for its NY1 Noticias web promo and Brand New award for its Right Media logo animation for Yahoo!.

Boutique Game Studio Credits Autodesk Powerful Software for Streamlined Animation, Modeling and Rigging Workflow
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Autodesk Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) announced that indie casual game development studio Phyken Media used Autodesk Maya 3D animation software to develop its immersive turn-based strategy game “Wizard Ops Tactics” – now available for Apple iOS and Android Google Play. Under a tight deadline and strict budget, Phyken Media’s team of three digital artists leveraged the 3D capabilities of Autodesk Maya to create an impressive volume of high-quality art, models and other 3D assets.
“Building a mobile game like ‘Tactics’ with such a small team requires talented artists and robust technology, which is why we turned to Maya which allowed us to create many new characters and over 200 unique animations,” said Phyken Media President Kunal Patel. “With Maya we could ramp up production quickly and get right to work. We used the software on our first ‘Wizard Ops’ arcade shooter and a large part of our team learned it in school. Maya really allows us to do whatever we want.”
“Wizard Ops Tactics” is an asynchronous strategy game set in an isometric wizard universe that includes sound effects by “Police Academy” actor Michael Winslow. Players build wizard armies equipped with wands, spells and heavy artillery for tactical missions. Users then deploy their units and challenge friends or random opponents to attack. Alternating turns, battle ensues until one wizard army ultimately wins out.
“There is a tremendous benefit to developing 3D games for the mobile platform. 3D enhances realism by leveraging the power of today’s mobile graphics while also enhancing the gameplay in ways that are difficult to achieve using 2D alone,” said Marc Stevens, Autodesk vice president, games. “Phyken is a prime example. With a small but talented team, they were able to create enticing 3D characters and environments in Maya that will distinguish their game from similar games on the market.”
Each unit of the game features 30 to 40 extraordinary explosive animations involving artillery and sorcery – from fireballs to lightening, grenades and more — and gives gamers a 360-degree view of the action. To make the gameplay authentic, Phyken relied on Maya on the Mac to develop flexible 3D models, textures and lighting, and complete complex rigs and animation that bring additional depth and detail to the game’s characters and environments.
After all of the game assets were finalized, Phyken exported them to the Unity Game Engine via Autodesk FBX asset exchange technology. Project Manager Justin Lynch shared, “We’ve always found that Maya and Unity 3D complement each other. We were able to create all of our 3D assets in Maya, export them as FBX files and literally drag the files into the Unity Engine, type in the key frames and press ‘go’- making the whole process a lot less time-consuming.”
Autodesk helps people imagine, design and create a better world. Everyone–from design professionals, engineers and architects to digital artists, students and hobbyists–uses Autodesk software to unlock their creativity and solve important challenges.

NYC Post House Sweeps FIAP Awards and Garners Best of Show at USH Idea Awards
Just how powerful is Powerful Yogurt? If a trio of edgy spots edited and post-produced by Wild(child) is any indication, strong enough to start a car, light a fire, or win a ping-pong match. Editor Diego Panich teamed up with the The Vidal Partnership on the campaign, continuing a years-long creative partnership that has yielded memorable work for various high-profile brands.
Panich used a barrage of quick cuts, reaction shots, and over-the-top sound effects to frame the spots in a cheeky, cartoonish world of hard bodies and cheesy grins. “Our goal was to use sound design to create funny, compelling spots that viewers would want to watch over and over,” Panich notes. “We wanted to exaggerate the funny, and the sound played a huge role in that, acting as a kind of dialogue to communicate and reinforce the cartoonish craziness as deliberately as possible to the audience. The idea was to build a choreography that enhances the story’s humor.”
In Ping Pong, Wild(child) created a percussive rhythm around the ball as a frumpy nerd slugs it back and forth with an unknown target, who is finally revealed to be a muscle-bound opponent deflecting the ball with nothing but his abs. Sound design was also integral to the flow of Lumberman, in which repetitious noise defines a lost girl’s growing angst until a stud tramps out of the woods, lighting her camp fire with a flick of a match across his stomach. Cowboy takes the integration of sound and edit a step further, amping a desert landscape to the level of a roof-raising urban dance club when a dashing cowboy runs jumper cables from his abs to restart a damsel’s stalled truck.
Wild(child) played up its creative strengths of timing and experimentation to build the perfect comedic narrative for each spot. Panich worked closely with The Vidal Partnership CD Gustavo Lauria to get the best possible talent cuts and to ensure that the comedy was true to the agency’s original intent. The Wild(child) team then assembled this footage into a number of test spots, ranging from subtle to over the top, postponing the dramatic turning point for as long as possible to find the perfect intersection of suspense and comedic timing.
“Vidal knew they had a fresh idea and an abundance of great footage, and they approached us for the same reason they have so many times before – to help elevate the creative,” noted Wild(child) EP Amy Lazarus. “Diego is a tireless worker and just kept trying different versions of each spot until each worked perfectly within the confines of this quirky, crazy world we had created. When people kept asking us to play these final versions over and over again, we knew he’d nailed it.”
The new campaign has already won numerous industry plaudits – including Best of Show at the 2013 USH Idea Awards. The campaign also swept the 2013 FIAP Awards, with “Powerful Ping-Pong Man” winning Gold, and “Powerful Cattleman” and the overall campaign both receiving Silvers.

Helps GB4D Rental House Simplify Network Audio Distribution High in the French Alps
TIGNES, FRANCE, MAY 2, 2013 – For the fourth year in a row, a portion of ESPN’s X Games has taken place overseas, this time in Tignes, France, a hot spot for skiing and snowboarding in the French Alps. In addition to X Games Tignes being broadcast from France this year for the first time ever, the annual extreme sporting event is going global, with additional events taking place through early August in Aspen (U.S.), Barcelona (Spain), Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil), Los Angeles (U.S.) and Munich (Germany). Situated at up to 12, 293 feet above sea level, the location of the games added a new level of complexity for Gilles Bouvard Events and Entertainment (GB4D), the France-based rental house that assisted ESPN with the sophisticated audio signal distribution necessary for the event. To help manage the coordination and weather challenges, the company turned to Optocore’s optical fiber network solutions.
The event in France was co-produced by Canal+ Events on behalf of ESPN, with GB4D providing virtually all of the audio equipment for the competition zones to assist A+ Events, another co-producer. With more than 125 athletes participating in the games, the team at GB4D knew it needed gear capable of managing not only proper audio distribution, but also able to withstand the snowy weather concerns. A longtime fan of Optocore, Gilles Bouvard, owner of GB4D, suggested Optocore’s interfaces as a way to ensure a successful signal flow within a redundant system.
“The audio vendor for the X Games was my former associate, Julien Terrier, with his new company A+ Events,” says Bouchard. “I suggested he use Optocore to provide all the fiber network signal distribution.”
The audio transmission was based around two Optocore loops—one ring for the Super Pipe competition area, with five Optocore X6R-FX network converters for the main PA and one for the VIP area—and a second for the Slope Style competition area, with two X6R-FX interfaces. The master control room was equipped with two DD2FR-FX (offering MADI ports), two DD32R-FX (AES-EBU) and one X6R-FX systems. GB4D was able to control the entire Optocore system from a single desktop PC.
As the distances between nodes were long, GB4D used approximately 984 feet (300m) of Neutrik X-TREME fibers for signal transport between all links. The primary ring measured a distance of approximately 1.3 miles (2.1km) and the secondary approximate 1,968 feet (600m), which was constructed around 12 nodes, plus spares.
L’Acoustics LA8 and Lab Gruppen PLM10000Q amplifiers fed the main PA hangs, while the Optocore LAN controlled the Super Pipe’s deck fills. Inputs included background music, live DJ feeds, wireless announcer microphones, various media and advertisement sources and TV truck feeds.
“Thanks to the Optocore network, the wireless links for the announcers was greatly simplified. Also, feeding signals into the system was easy,” explains Bouvard. “As for the outputs, the Optocore fiber network allowed a simple routing of the various signals feeding the amplifiers all around the site. The possibilities offered by macros allowed a simplified routing and ease of modification for all the various live and recording feeds.” GB4D designed a redundant FOH position, deploying two fully backed-up Midas digital desks.
Bouvard compared the challenge of working high in the Alps with the opposite climatic extreme GB4D faced when it recently deployed a vast Optocore and BroaMan network over a huge distance for Kuwait’s 50th Constitution Day celebration. “There was really little difference,” he says. “On the one hand we had the high temperatures and sand storms, on the other the very low temperatures and snow. We found ourselves in two similar extreme situations and we had to find reliable solutions.
“I think that working in those difficult environments helps us improve our technical expertise. We have learned to adapt technically to those constraints, for example with the PA and cabling, but more essentially for the monitoring of the systems, which is crucial in this type of event and in these conditions. The use of an Optocore network simplifies this enormously.”
With the increasing popularity of the X Games across the world, there are more technical challenges, especially in the months leading up to the event. “Reliability is fundamental,” continues Bouvard. “All the vendors present were snow and mountain specialists, so we were ready for any technical challenges. Plus, the ease of the Optocore implementation was a major step forward for this project. The most notable aspects were the simplification of the routing system, the increased reliability of the wiring on site, the total redundancy and the real-time monitoring of all system components.”
He added that GB4D technicians François Lund, Patrice Giono and Piotr Skotnicki have worked at X Games Tignes since it was first staged there in 2010. All three are certified Optocore technicians, and were responsible for realizing the design, implementation and operation of this year’s event.
Based in Munich, Germany, Optocore is the world market leading provider of scalable, high-bandwidth, low–latency fiber-optic networks for the transmission of audio, video and data.
