    SYNOPSIS

    While the Pelagic Life team is chasing the elusive sardine baitball in the open ocean near Baja California, they stumble upon a crude shark fishing operation that sparks a seismic shift in the group’s thinking. Departing from their original concept of documenting awesome sea-life phenomenon, they transform their mission to creating awareness of Mexico’s sea-life while creating sustainable livelihoods for the shark fishermen in order to preserve a delicate and critical ecosystem. Mexico Pelagico is the story of an unlikely pairing of interests. It is clear that once you swim alongside sharks, sailfish, dolphin, turtles and even crocodiles, your perspective will never be the same. Mexico Pelagico invites the audience to engage with Mexico’s rich and majestic oceanic treasures, to be inspired and awed to take up the mantle of respect and conservation through ecotourism.

    LETTER FROM DIRECTOR

    Mexico has a forgotten ecosystem: the mega fauna in the open ocean. This collection of marine life includes sharks, rays, billfish, dolphins, whales, turtles, among others, and in Mexican waters they encounter a variety of threats and opportunities. There is over-exploitation of some species and yet massive sanctuaries and success stories exist out there. But the real problem is the complete oblivion of the general public to this particular topic.

    Mexico is privileged because it has the largest congregation of whale sharks and great white sharks in the world. In the seas of Mexico unique events occur, such as the unusual congregation sailfish and striped marlin to devour huge sardine bait balls. However, Mexico is also one of the countries with the highest export of shark fins in the world. These are just tiny strokes of what is happening in the world we decided ended at the shoreline.

    Mexico Pelagic is a documentary that tries to show a small layer of the open ocean in Mexico illustrating the positive and negative events that occur. It is a product that condenses three years of exploration, learning and collaborative efforts in pro of the Mexican open ocean. We believe we can and must protect the Mexican pelagic ecosystem by replacing uncontrolled fishing with sustainable ecotourism in partnership with the local community. It is the intent of this film enlighten the public with the majestic splendor of Mexican marine life and incite the public to join the fight to protect the most forgotten and beautiful ecosystem in Mexico.

  2. Intel launched the Ultrabook, a super thin and sleek notebook that boosted superb performances in
    responsiveness, connectivity, data protection and battery life. Leehom, a multi-talented artist, was the
    perfect spokesperson to showcase the all-around performances of the Ultrabook.

    The idea for the short film was to have Leehom enter a futuristic space and become the Ultrabook
    personified, highlighting the great performances of the Ultrabook through five different scenarios. He
    played on a piano shaped by streaming lights of energy for hours on end, reacted swiftly to a fencer’s
    lunge, traveled light and easy on metallic waves, connected from point to point in an instant and
    warded off a powerful cloaked intruder attempting to steal his data.

    The rather abstract film was a great opportunity for us to build everything up from scratch, be it the
    the environment, the streaming lights or the different elements. The sound design was just as
    important in setting the mood and pace.

    Intel 最新產品Ultrabook,邀請王力宏擔任年度代言; 化身為Ultrabook以一段完美的演出來展現所 具備的長效電力/ 智慧反應/ 輕薄設計/ 智慧連接技術與防盜技術的五大特性。

    在視覺呈現上,JL DESIGN利用Ultrabook的元素來創造出冷冽的數位空間,同時為Intel的Die’namic品牌元素設計出流動傳輸的光線來象徵其連結性。王力宏化身為Ultrabook,藉由長時間彈奏由Die’namic所組成的鋼琴、靈敏回擊的西洋劍手、輕盈徜徉在銀色金屬海浪、點與點之間的快速連結與擊退駭客入侵來表現Ultrabook五大功能。
    影像配樂上,JL DESIGN邀來世界當紅的愛爾蘭音樂製作公司Echolab設計聲音配樂,打造出深具電子魅力的Intel Ultrabook世界觀。
