The internet has established itself as a repository of knowledge. The lion’s share of the world’s knowledge, experience and information resides on server farms and can be accessed by anyone at any time.
The work focuses on the shift of knowledge onto the internet and a question that arises from that shift: What will we still want to know when all information is permanently available?
The product is a two-minute trailer for an animated series on this theme of the transfer of knowledge. I am responsible for the script, the general form, the coordination of everyone involved and the project realisation.
Through an emotional grandfather/grandson relationship, the trailer illustrates how the transfer of knowledge has changed in the last three generations. At the same time, it deals with the difference between analogue and digital knowledge.

Power of the tire is a satirical piece depicting the current political and economical situation in Lebanon. It is meant to be satirical and does not reflect a real situation, but a personal interpretation.
Regarding this piece, it all started after watching Buck's Take part / waiting for superman trailer, which seemed to have the exact tone for what we wanted. Some of the copy was so good and served our message that we had to use it.
Regarding the visuals, buck's piece (Jr Canest's style) is a huge inspiration for experimenting and learning motion graphics. So the intro which is almost identical started as an exercise/study in smooth keyframing, and as the piece took shape, we decided to keep it and give a credit to Jr Canest's inspiring work. You can also find below a list for our inspiration for this piece. Hope you enjoy it.
In this tutorial I'll show you how to use Trapcode Echospace. This plugin is basically the equivalent of the Cloner Object, a Shader effector and a Random Effector all in one for After Effects! If you haven't used it before, it will revolutionize the way you think about working in After Effects. And if you create infographics, this plugin is a must have. You can buy it here: http://bit.ly/IPiigT or buy the Trapcode Suite for a big discount here: http://bit.ly/IHj3HP
