Melco Resorts & Entertainment is one of the world’s...Melco Resorts & Entertainment is one of the world’s largest integrated resort operators and an owner and developer of casino gaming and entertainment resort facilities around the world, with main properties in Asia. Melco’s brand values are quality, design, craft and technology and continually pushing to deliver better and more beautiful products. Woodwork was asked to create aspirational visuals to help support and drive the keynote speeches for CEO Lawrence Ho. The total of five animations were displayed during important press events announcing the company’s next steps. The animations all have a custom style and approach, corresponding with the different topics of the speeches. Pairing strategic and visionary speeches with abstract graphic visualisations, and new project reveals with realistic textural architecture renderings. The challenge in these projects was creating an engaging visual story that compliments and emphasises the speeches using strictly abstract visuals.

In collaboration with Matters Most we created the Brand movie and Motion language to bring the new identity to live, inside the building and online. We translated the identity of the M building into a dynamic grid where motion graphics and content complement each other.
Melco Resorts & Entertainment is one of the world’s...Melco Resorts & Entertainment is one of the world’s largest integrated resort operators and an owner and developer of casino gaming and entertainment resort facilities around the world. We were assigned by MerchantCantos Hong Kong to create the introductory film for Melco Chairman Lawrence Ho's opening keynote address at the Global Gaming Expo G2E. The manifesto film charts the achievements of the Melco brand over the last decade and explains their mission to do things differently. In support of the theme of the keynote address it underlines the brand's commitment to quality, originality and exceeding expectations. It was shown to an audience of key gaming industry figures and trade and business media journalists.

The Alibaba Group is China's biggest online commerce...The Alibaba Group is China's biggest online commerce company. Their mission: to make it easy to do business anywhere. Their aim: to build the future infrastructure of commerce. For the 2018 Alibaba Investor Day Conference we were approached by MerchantCantos Hong Kong to develop the opening film. The film tells the story of Alibaba’s core values and beliefs. By providing small business owners the technology, innovation, infrastructure and reach they want to put the power into the hands of "the little guy". Enabling small businesses to compete with "big business" on a global scale. The aim of the film is to capture the audience's attention in an unexpected and fresh manner. To deliver a message that can't be told by conventional statistics and graphs. The film opened the Investor Day Conference, hosted by Jack Ma and Daniel Zhang at the Alibaba headquarters in Hangzhou China. It was screened on a custom built curved ultra-wide screen.

For their Fall / Winter 2012 global campaign, Adidas...For their Fall / Winter 2012 global campaign, Adidas calls on heavyweights such as Nicki Minaj and Jeremy Scott. On the interactive side, fans from around the world are challenged to "Represent Their Crew" by uploading content showing what makes them the most original crew in the world. To bridge the global spot and the interactive campaign, and to call all crews to action, an introduction film was needed that would tell the story and excite crews to participate. Sid Lee Amsterdam asked Woodwork to integrate animations into the existing campaign footage. After creating our edit we took a hands-on approach by drawing the graphics on frame by frame. This was accompanied by some cell shaded, tracked 3D elements that reflect the visual language of the interactive platform.

Even more exciting is that the video was set to appear all over the world from England, Russia to China and Korea. Furthermore, we got the opportunity to combine the two disciplines we love most: live action and motion graphics. We worked together with the creative team of Adidas to produce a commercial that would introduce the Climaheat’s jacket and sweater for an online global campaign, featuring Climaheat as the best in class winter performance product. We wanted to find a balance between explaining the actual technological benefit of the products but at the same time giving it an inspirational story. The first direction we performed by traveling through the actual materials and explaining its function in the form of a tech render such as the ‘Heat Seals.’ We chose to give the set a nighttime urban feel, alternated with a mountain look. The runner in the story takes place in an urban setting who is running along old brick walls that are top lit. The dark high key lighting from surrounding lampposts makes the look complete. The hiker is set in a snowy mountain with a short line of sight. We see him walking through high snow and wind hits his jacket. The location for shooting the material was in the Bruynzeel barracks where we build up a city and simulated a snowstorm. This project was our kind of live action meets animation!

Agency MerchantCantos Hong Kong was assigned to produce the event for the opening of the Morpheus Hotel, the most recent addition to the City of Dreams project. They approached us to help them develop two films for the event. The City of Dreams hotel brand film is a visual representation of the three hotel brands that make up City of Dreams - from the Spa Award winner Nüwa, the iconic Morpheus featuring the world's first free-form high-rise exoskeleton designed by Zaha Hadid, to the playful and provocatively designed The Libertine. Each of the properties is unique in its own right; Nüwa is about the thrill of exclusivity, Asian indulgence and traditional elegance, Morpheus is about the thrill of imagination, awe-inspiring luxury and modern fluidity, The Libertine is about the thrill of fantasy, playing with your senses through provocative design.

Transforming the scratch tickets into the shapes of the actual prizes. We worked together with Texas based agency LatinWorks and Antfood took care of the music and sound design.
One of Netherland’s major tv channels asked our friend at...One of Netherland’s major tv channels asked our friend at Dog and Pony to develop a new strategy and creative concept, so we teamed up to take on this project and we are as proud as peacocks with the ultimate result. ‘Nederland 3’ is an innovative channel that tries to heighten the interconnectedness between Dutch citizens. They try to achieve this by broadcasting programs that are, besides being informative, inspirational and offering entertainment; innovative. The programs show for what they are and reveal how it could be. It focuses on true stories featuring real people. Their voice is without prejudice in unconventional and surprising ways. Goal is to encourage viewers to change the way they look at the world. The more you see, the better you will understand it. Hence, the new slogan of Nederland 3: ‘Anders kijken, meer zien’ which translates into English: ‘take a different view, see more’. Our challenge was to find a way to refresh the channel, keeping the heritage of the channel in mind. It has a lot to offer and we wanted to give them the opportunity to literally show more in different ways. Our solution was a dynamic grid based on the logo’s shape. Where views from different angles and perspectives can be visualized in a dynamic lens framework. The restyling matches Nederland 3 in a way that it both pushes boundaries, not afraid of experimenting; it zooms, delays and shifts focus. The grid also determines the promo package that we developed for the channel. It is a modular system that can incorporate any piece of content, which means that every second of an evening’s programming can be displayed from start to finish. The grid brings to life what’s at the heart of Nederland 3: the more people see of the world, the better they will understand it. Overall it’s about engaging different perspectives, innovative programming and captivating viewers; all in one place.

Twelve precisely arranged compositions that become one seamless image. Creating portraits consisting of a diverse array of visuals, both still and moving, like a Hipster face, squid tentacles, a cup of coffee, a bowl of salad and much more. These items were used as part of a bigger campaign for Facebook Germany. Gifs seem pretty hot right now and this turned out to be a nice warm up for the gifs to come. The internet needs it.

They offer their clients a project-only creative service and are a partner of Award winning UK production company GreatGuns. We were responsible for the direction en production of this introductory and were inspired to give the animation the look and feel of a graphic novel. Therefore, we searched for creative ways of putting it in a Western setting using all clichés such as vast, empty lands, an old dusted town with a saloon and the always-present swinging doors. With each turn of a next frame, we wanted to visualize iconic elements on one hand and explaining the story of Gunfight in another. To create the best effect throughout the film we combined 2D and 3D animation and we really tried to grasp the painted 2D feel by projection mapping. We relished the opportunity to animate this project and if that wasn’t enough, our creative director took care of the sounddesign and music. We really enjoyed creating and animating this Wild Western shootout!
