(March 10, 2008) PES of Anonymous Content directs this colorful campaign for AT&T featuring their exclusive Walkman Slider phones.|
The master of stop motion animation brings us this delightful display where the phones themselves are launched into the sky creating dazzling fireworks that would put any Fourth of July celebration to shame. Pink, silver, and black phones blast off into the air erupting in a kaleidoscope of color. The lighted phones surge and multiply into spiraling shapes that disappear as quickly as they come. PES' fireworks bring a unique visual flavor to the sleek sophisticated style of AT&T.

Using Apple FCPX for A DocumenTree
After 25 years of working on other people's documentaries, commercials, feature films, filmmaker Michael Angelo's first original project is the inspirational story of the Treeman of Venice Beach, a singular creation of a singular man whose combination of costume, body paint, live foliage, and 10-foot stilts is gently beguiling and deeply inspirational. With over 1000 hours of footage in a crazy number of formats over a period of years, collaboration among a far-flung team of volunteers with varying degrees of expertise (including none at all), A DocumenTree seemed like the ideal project for Michael to jump into Final Cut Pro X. Michael's longtime experience in a variety of disciplines has nevertheless allowed him to come at the issues of media management, metadata, offline-online workflows, and a variety of complex technical issues in some unusual, and, dare we say it, organic ways.
