  • The Remarkable Journey of the All-New BMW X5

    How do you transport the all-new BMW X5 from the factory in South Carolina to the stage of the LA auto show? You drive.

    While every other car maker transports their brand-new models to auto shows in carriers, we took a different route and drove the all-new BMW X5 for nearly 3,000 miles across 11 states, taking as few detours as possible. The 10-day journey started at the BMW’s factory in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and headed west directly to the LA Auto Show. When we finally got there, BMW’s CEO, Bernhard Kuhnt, drove the dirty vehicle onto the stage—a move that surprised an audience used to seeing only the shiniest cars.

    During the trip we challenged the X5 with all sorts of obstacles and real events, including an unexpected way to cross the Mississippi River, a real-life demolition derby in Tennessee, cornfields, ranches, public events and a high school football game in Texas. To ensure the authenticity of the journey, we captured every scene in real locations found along the way, including all the people and animals shown. No actors were ever cast. The result is the ultimate portrait of the X5’s capabilities and a beautiful picture of America’s heartland.

Xfinity Reality Week

  • Xfinity Reality Week

    To celebrate Xfinity Reality Week we opened the world’s first reality-TV Bar.

    The inspiration for this idea was simple: Reality TV is more popular than news and sports among Americans. So, Xfinity converted one of Miami’s most popular sports bars into the XfinityReality Bar, a bar dedicated to reality television. 

    Timed with January TV premieres and the Golden Globes, every detail of the bar has been designed with reality-TV fans in mind, from the memorabilia—which includes items like the original duck phone used on Jersey Shore—to reality-TV trivia and celebrity Q&As. 

    For the millions of reality-TV fans who can’t make it to Miami, Xfinity will be creating a Reality Week hub on their X1 entertainment platform. By saying “Show me Reality Week” into their X1 Voice Remotes, fans will be able to access exclusive content from the bar, including interviews, games and viewing parties with their favorite (or least favorite) reality stars.

Dalí Lives

Client:
The Dalí Museum
  • Dalí Lives

    Imagine legendary surrealist artist Salvador Dalí personally welcoming you to his museum, even sharing observations on current events and the motivations behind his masterpieces. The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida announced today, on the 30th anniversary of the artist’s death, that it will celebrate Dalí’s art and legacy with “Dalí Lives,” a groundbreaking experience to be unveiled exclusively at The Dalí in April 2019.

    Visitors to the Museum will soon have the opportunity to learn more about Dalí’s life and work from the person who knew him best: the artist himself. Using an artificial intelligence (AI)-based face-swap technique, known as “deepfake” in the technical community, the new “Dalí Lives” experience employs machine learning to put a likeness of Dalí’s face on a target actor, resulting in an uncanny resurrection of the moustacheod master. When the experience opens, visitors will for the first time be able to interact with an engaging life-like Salvador Dalí on a series of screens throughout the Museum.

    The “Dalí Lives” project further demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to staying on the forefront of technology, embracing new methods to engage guests in unconventional ways to delight and educate them about Salvador Dalí and his works. Sometimes controversial like Dalí himself, this emerging technology is being used for the first time in inspiring service to art.
