Working with the United Nations and Richard Curtis and his team at Project Everyone, 59 has designed and produced a projected artwork to celebrate the launch of the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
The ten minute piece - projected on two vast surfaces at the United Nations headquarters in New York at the opening of the General Assembly of world leader - comprises a rapid-fire combination of 2d and 3d animation with filmed actors, and introduces each of the 17 'Global Goals' before celebrating the moment of their launch around the globe with a spectacular 2 minute finale.
Developed over the course of almost a year, 59 has worked closely with Academy Award nominee Richard Curtis, the director of Project Everyone, to create a piece which is part campaign film, part educational resource and part celebration, presenting the Global Goals in an accessible and visually exciting way. The projection piece was also filmed and broadcast around the world on MSNBC and BBC Worldwide. This video is that shortened broadcast cut, and runs to 3 minutes.
