Escape Machines Pop Up in Paris - Surprise

(8 years ago)
DDB Paris created this simple, fun “Escape Machine”  experience for the French travel company Voyages SNCF.Menacing, glowing black cubes wait till someone goes close enough. Then the cube asks where the person would like to travel. Pushing the red button produces a crazy celebration, complete with gigantic walking kisses, and provides the wishers large, customized mock tickets to their destination. Watching the faces of the onlookers is just as much fun as the experience itself!The underlying message is that the company’s Escape service lets you travel to any destination you want.  DDB Paris with executive creative director Alexandre Harve created this, as it did last year’s flash-mob “Welcome Service” scenes for Voyages SNCF. - Tuija Seipell

TCH TV - Opener

(8 years ago)
Our story follows a group of Cool Hunters, evolved humans who used to live among regular humans, but as time passed, they infiltrated the global wired infrastructure system and live connected within the technology. The Cool Hunters have adapted themselves to the challenges of the future. They are faster and more accurate at retrieving and distilling exorbitant amounts of information. As they become one with the machine, they access all and extract the essence of an idea, in mere seconds. The Cool Hunters are connected to every one of us. They have access to all digital and analog structures. We see a glimpse of this in the first scene, as we watch a Cool Hunter looking through the machine and analyzing every detail of a young couple's life - the architecture and design of their home, their clothes, their  possessions, nothing is lost on the Cool Hunters as they scan for nuggets of ideas. They live to share their findings.Directed and Animated by Tronic StudioMusic and Sound Design by Q Department
