Carousel: A Frozen Cops n’ Robbers Shootout

Carousel is a Dark Knight-inspired short film created to celebrate the impending arrival of the Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD, the world’s first cinema proportioned television screen.

Coincidentally 2 minutes and 19 seconds long, Carousel shows an epic cops-and-robbers shootout that is frozen in time. As the ad plays out, the camera moves through the frozen scene revealing different parts of the story. Check it out.

Carousel was created by Stink Digital and directed by Adam Berg who conceived it to work as an endless loop. It’s better viewed on the Philips Carousel microsite.

Visitors to the microsite therefore have the option to spin through the films single take shot repeatedly, to stop on a specific frame, or to watch it at the preordained speed. The film also contains embedded hotspots, which, when triggered, transport the viewer seamlessly from the heavily posted film to a behind-the-scenes version of the same shot.

Our Lives at The Cost of Theirs?

It’s a sad fact, but much like all the other commodities on sale, wildlife conservation also needs advertising. The the WWF (World Wildlife Fund for Nature) hired Ogilvy & Mather from India to design their ad campaign, and the result is “Our Life at the Cost of Theirs?” which sends a clear message about how we adversely affect our natural environment.

Erwin Wurm, the Chubby Maker

I don’t know about you but I quite like a little “junk in the trunk”.

Weird Austrian Erwin Wurm seems to have a similar view, but for motor vehicles. By plumping up an existing car with styrofoam and fiberglass, his “Fat Car” is a  chubby version of the original sporty model. He wants to offer a sharp criticism of our current value system, as the advertising world demands us to stay thin but to consume more and more – via Geekologie.
