  2. Exiled from the tropical paradise where they evolved, a tiny population of remarkable stick insects dodged extinction by hiding under a single windswept bush on the world's tallest sea stack for 80 years.

  3. Please visit yukaidu.com/way-out/ to know more about the project.

    ‘Way out’, my MA graduation film, is inspired by ‘Alone Together’ by Sherry Turkle and a reflection of modern life in this digital age. The exaggerated contrast between emotionless citizens and characterized phones reveals our over-­‐dependence on virtual communication. A dramatic and extreme consequence shows a negative attitude, for which no one can escape the trend of technology that originally comes from the endless appetence of human beings.

    The 100,000 most active Nike+ members received a personalized animation for the new year 2015.
    Each of the 100.000 films are created using location, weather, activity and individual Nike+ movement data.
    Meaning a runner from Toronto would receive a completely different film to an NTC user in New York.

    In addition to the personalized films for members, we created additional films honoring the achievements of four key cities and North America as a whole.

    1,500 hand crafted unique animation clips populated a custom cloud render system, which then rendered over 125,000,000 frames of animation (59 days worth) to construct the final 100,000 animations.
