It is the year 1972 - “The Godfather” is brought into the theaters and makes us an offer, that we could not refuse. For the last time a human being sets his foot on the moon’s surface, and an entrepreneur in the North Italian Bergamo founds the NOLAN company. The light and affordable helmets made of spacematerial becomes a constant in the motorcycle-industry.
Forty years later the company, which manufactures it’s products to 100% in Italy up untill today, develops a special highlight: The N44. The innovative “crossover”-helmet combines several helmet versions to one.
This product video filmed with the stop-motion-technique provides a brief insight into the long standing history of the company and introduces the particular functions of the helmet in detail. Each frame’s content, from the animation of the helmet up to the typography, were elaborately hand-crafted.
