Design and animation studio Brand New School teamed up with The Martin Agency for Oreo’s multi-screen campaign which played across screens in Times Square over the holidays. The “Wonderfilled” campaign celebrated the 100th birthday of the famed cookie and Brand New School’s whimsical animations creatively got across the concept that everyone loves Oreos. A variety of hands (and, in some cases, paws) were seen passing around and dunking the cream-filled cookies, depicting everything from princesses and aliens to astronauts and reindeer. The concept became larger-than-life when seen playing across multiple screens in one of the world’s biggest advertising meccas.

Art and design studio United Visual Artists (UVA) have created a new immersive installation called Momentum at the Barbican Centre in London. Explains The Creators Project, "The installation.. includes pendulum-like pieces throughout the 90-meter-long gallery to yield an evolving composition of light, sound, and movement. The pendulums, however, are programmed to move in idiosyncratic ways, so that shadows and light surge across the room and disorient visitors in a captivating and individual manner. Every visitor's experience in Momentum will thus be unique, and could possibly help her understand her senses better." Read more here and here and see it in action below.

Matthu Placek talks to The Credits about the technology behind his 3D, single-take, 7-minute film, "130919 • A Portrait of Marina Abramović." He explains, "It’s very rewarding to see a deeply embedded visual come to life so accurately. To achieve this shot in 3D, a fifty-foot techno crane was required with a fully wireless 3D rig using two Scarlet cameras. My crew consisted of forty-five people with upwards of fifty lights to create the necessary depth and color balance essential to telling Marina’s story in three dimensions." Read the full story here.
