We were lucky enough to get to work with Ray Ban, the legendary eyewear brand, recently. The team at WAM Paris approached us to create an animated world based on the amazing print illustrations created for the campaign by Los Angeles based artist James Jean.
The spot sees a young woman dive into a strange and magical world, powered by her awesome new plaid sunnies.

From the makers of All.I.Can comes the new feature film: INTO THE MIND. Blur the lines between dream state and reality, as you perceive the world through the minds of many. Into the Mind contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? Unique athlete segments over a multitude of mountain sport genres depict the connectivity of Earth, and window into never seen before moments. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization.
As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
Into The Mind is about becoming.

It is a timelapse video of the the mountainscape in Allgäu/ Bavaria/ Germany.
All sequences are shot in the area around the town Bad Hindelang.
The exact shooting locations were Hinterstein, Bad Hindelang, Oberjoch, Sonthofen, Burgberg, Oberstdorf, Hüttenberg and Gunzesried.
I have spent over 12 months collecting footage for this, I have shot approx. 20,000 stills before choosing 10,000 of them for this video.
Personally it is my goal to show you the beauty of the mountains on all the different daytimes and seasons.
They are always nice, even if the weather is bad.
One of my focus points is for sure the photography of the night sky, which fascinates me the most.
I have spent a lot of time in the nature taking these pictures, however the most work had to be done at home with post processing. And although you always feel like there is something you could have improved, even small details, before releasing, you come to a point when you just have to finish. And this time is now.
I want to thank my friends and family for supporting me.
The resolution of the video in Vimeo is 1280 x 720.
It is also available in 1920x1080 (and even 4k for some shots). Contact me for higher resolution.
