Colour sculptures

Agency Network: 
September 2010


Dentsu London collaborate with biochemist / photographer Linden Gledhill for new Canon PIXMA colour printer campaign - ‘Colour sculptures’. High-speed photography was used to capture colourful formations created when sound waves are passed through paint. Just a few centimetres high, they are ordinarily invisible to the human eye. However, when filmed in HD with macro lenses at 5,400 frames per second, the physical sound wave is captured in intricate detail. The cross platform campaign was created by Dentsu London and will run online, in print, outdoor and in store.

Film advertisement created by Dentsu, United Kingdom for Canon, within the category: Electronics, Technology.

Nice, but in the end it's just brainless colours to me. The last shot does change that a lil bit - with the mixed drop - but meh.

Nice production though, the internet quality didn't do justice to it ;-)

Nice color, movement, but the ending is a complete disappointment. Why don't the drops turn into something awesome?
