We were in New York attending Internet Week in May 2012, learning new things and getting creative fuel for future projects. We created this responsive website where we were feeding all our Instagrams, Foursquare check-ins and Tweets to give a picture of what happened and what we were up to. Check it out!
Continuing our theme of bringing inspiring films on creativity to Copenhagen, SweetTalk Cph and Plant bring you ‘PressPausePlay‘. Recent winner of ‘Best Documentary’ at the Santa Cruz Film Festival, this Swedish produced film looks at how the digital age has democratised culture, unleashing creativity and unlimited creative opportunities.
Screening will be June 22, 2011 at Grand Teatret with a video introduction from the directors. Get your tickets now (DKK 80). Grand will be open afterwards for some mingling.
Attending the FITC (Flash In The Can) in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hearing Evan Roth speak about his many crazy, weird and wonderful ideas/projects. Check out his site here or try typing BAD ASS MOTHERFUCKER on Google, witch is one of his crazy projects, to see how long it will take him to be the first one listed when searching for those 3 key words… LOL!
Greenpeace claimed that Nestlé’s supplier of palm oil contributed to rainforest deforestation and launched the video above, a parody of a Kit Kat commercial which basically accuses Nestlé of killing orangutans by destroying their natural living environment.
Nestlé lobbied to have the video removed from YouTube, citing a copyright complaint, which drew even more attention to it. As the video went viral, their Facebook page was overwhelmed with insolent comments. Nestlé’s spokesperson threatened to delete any comment made with an altered version of the Kit Kat logo (e.g. Killer), which once again backfired. After 1.5 million views, Nestlé finally gave up and met the demand of Greenpeace by terminating the supplier.
Greenpeace really gave Nestlé a bad break and a lesson in how NOT to use social media.
Really cool example of combining a printed magazine with augmentet reality. Build with Open Frameworks for the March 2010 issue of Boards Magazine. Everything is open source released under the GPL v2.0, so there is no excuse not to play around with this nice example!
