Bright Mites, Big City - this futuristic animation film by Mate Steinforth illustrates the development and destruction of a mite population in only 60 seconds. Enough time for cameos of Hello Kitty bobby pins, bright red lollipops, and - tadah!! - the Vorwerk mite blaster Tiger VT265. And for those who skipped their German classes: "Stadt der Milben" means "Mite City" and "Mehr Saugkraft. Weniger Mitbewohner" reads "More vacuum power. Fewer roommates"!

DROPLETS is a movie about ideas. But it’s mostly a movie about the feelings, when you have no idea. Oppression, disorientation and fear can be paralyzing, but are often a very important element on the way to the perfect idea. The movie DROPLETS shows this feelings in an experimental way.
908video did not want to create a classic image film in such sense. Our idea was to make an image film all about our new logo and at the same time show 908video's technical and creative possibilities as well as our varying departments. At 908video clients and partners get offered ideas, concepts, film production, motion design, motion graphics, illustration, 2D and 3D animation, compositing, editing, colour correction, sound design and music composition - everything brought together under one roof in Berlin. We examplify our work and used our logo as the protagonist. 908video's logo experiences a journey through different kind of worlds, which were created in our various departments. In order to complete the image of 908video, we embedded this voyage into an uncomparable world of sound and music. This image film shows what 908video is and what you can expect from us.
