Michel Gondry for Motorola

Michel Gondry’s imaginative new film for Motorola attempts to incorporate the functions of the RAZR2 into the fantasy world he has created. Gondry mentioned that this was a particularly difficult shoot, because all of the scene transformations were done mechanically and in-camera (which is not unusual for him, however he pointed out that he doesn’t think he has done it before at this level).

Coming from someone who feels he focuses to much on all “in-computer” motion graphics, it’s really inspiring to watch primarily in-camera pieces such as this and Logan’s Toyota spot.

  • Wow, that was actually *too* random for me. I simply couldn’t follow what in the hell was going on.

    Visually it was interesting, but it felt like something my subconscious mind would vomit into my occipital lobe after taking some bad acid. I wonder if that’s the message Motorola wanted to communicate…

    not too bad, definitely showcases the features of the phone. Just had to view it a few times to see what its demonstrating I guess.

    Which is, after all, what advertisements are all about right? Wanting to see it again and again

    justin! right on man.

    thats exactly what i was gonna post. I watched that and immediately wanted to post up on here that i think i need to go for a walk now so that my sense of balance can be realigned.

    I’m total nauseas/ vomit city over here. I’m at work right now and feel like i can’t talk to anyone for an hour or two cause i might just spill some mind garbage cause i just got over a bad acid trip.

    i mean, just look at my last post. My sentences barely make sense. Shew, think i might watch a 5 minute still shot from 2001 so i can balance my psyche.
