Studio Bites: No. 12

Each week we ask our team to select something they’ve seen or read that is inspiring, interesting, or just plain intriguing. At our creative breakfast we meet over coffee and croissants to share and discuss what everyone brought to the table.

 

Robo road trip

It seems inevitable that some day we’ll be ‘driving’ (piloting?) autonomous vehicles, and many recent articles outline visions for what that might mean for the future of travel, parking and navigation. But what of the vehicles themselves? Working with industrial design firm Map and Creative Director Morihiro Harana, Honda created this charming stop-motion exploration of what the ancient migration of humankind could be like if undertaken using a variety of conceptual autonomous vehicles, designed for the wide variety of terrains encountered along the route.

 

 

Days gone by

During a 3-week railway journey through Japan in 2015, Vincent Urban captured this wonderful collection of ‘audiovisual moments and memories’ in a culture that fuses the traditional and futuristic into a fascinating present.

 

 

Still in the moment

Using a series of brilliant cinemagraphs, Canon created this subtle set of 100 photography tips – a seamless blend of education and product.

 

 

Escape-a-gram

The team at this year’s Toronto Silent Film Festival created the first ever Instagram-based Escape Room experience, to provide an intriguing challenge that also highlights the fact that 70% of silent films have been lost forever.

 

 

Fighting for attention

At the opposite end of the spectrum from silent films are modern day summer blockbusters. Taking account of equally modern attention-spans is the recent trend of placing rapid bursts of action at the start of trailers, which aim to keep hold of your interest for… the rest of the trailer.
