This is one of the coolest outdoor exhibits i’ve seen in a long time…I only wish it wasn’t all the way in London so I could see it up close in person.

This is the HP ePrint & Tron: Legacy Experience live projection mapping on the roof of the QEH on London’s Southbank. It was created with 6x18k projectors onto a massive projection canvas that was somewhere in the ballpark of 50m wide by 20m tall. An 8k D&B sound rig provided the killer audio taken from snippets of the movie soundtrack (Written and Recorded by none other than Daft Punk).

Here’s an overhead shot to get a better gauge of the massive scale of this audio/video exhibit:

Hoping to see similar results to w+k’s Happiness Factory from last year, Ogilvy Argentina teamed up with London-based Passion Pictures to create this :60 animated masterpiece for Coke Zero. I know I’m not alone when I say that I’m a big fan of this style of commercial and I wonder if there are any plans to make a feature length version of the spot. Aptly titled Happy Kingdom, this piece was directed by Pete Candeland.
