Toshiba is to launch a special effects-laden TV campaign, featuring next-generation "bullet time" techniques made famous by the movie The Matrix, to promote its home entertainment products.
The mesmerising TV ad, shot on Toshiba products to showcase their hi-tech capability, features about 10 people captured in slow motion engaged in what appears to be a choreographed range of activities.
Toshiba's £3m ad campaign, dubbed the world's first "timesculpture" commercial, manipulates "snapshots of time" using more than 200 camcorders and video data requiring 336 hours of processing.

The Alphabet 2- a horn book video experiment - is a developmental spelling - video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font's proportions. A collection of words in a delightful spelling-video.
