Amazing work, love the music and the visuals. Works in harmony. Very dramatic!

The concept is only as good as the execution.

It's beautiful, but if the score went with the visuals a bit more it would have been spectacular.

Whoa, great visuals and nice score. But, it doesn't feel like an ad. I see it as an intro or a credits sequence. Good concept.

I am not an ad creative, I just help with the technology side of this site.

I have to say this is an amazing ad. Well made. The names included are famous in the classical music field.

The only thing is at the end they say "muzik im blut", which may mean "Music in blood" in German. Not sure what they mean by that.

fantastic ad / artwork

"musik im blut" is a german expression for music comes naturally to somebody.
(It comes from "im blut liegen" -> to be in somebody's blood)
Nice wordplay in combination with these fabulous visuals.

Always the same mechanic. One lil idea, one optic.... no climax or something. Some optical firework, text-chart, end.... sometimes this style bores me

but, yeah yeah it looks good and has a idea, yeah yeah... or wait, its just a phrase and a one-to-one optic.... ok at least it looks nice

some of the names appear too fast to be understood and the score could be more in sync... but that's really being bitchy :-) lovely concept and execution. well done!

raw's picture

amazing..very very very inspires u to create something in the moving image field...

accounti's picture

for all the credit-fuckers out there: the concept is by jvm, I know the guys who did it. and because they are an ad-agency and not a postproduction, they needed to find somebody who is in the programms. seen their new print campaign for the children-concerts?

Great job. It was done using Alias' Maya at least for the names and the flowers... I wouldn't even be surprised if most of it wasn't done in a fish tank and real red ink... It was well done but i would have loved to have seen it shift colors or use multiple colors in the same scene. but excellent work.

Actually it was done with red ink. They preferred that instead of 3D. Greek Nikos Tziopanos directed it after 6 months of experiments on ink with his students.
Here are the credits from Studio Sehsucht in Hamburg that did it...

Director: Niko Tziopanos
Art Direction: Alexander Heyer and Martin Hess
Camera: Bea Wellenbrock , Alex Heyer and Valentin Heun
2D Compositing (AE): Niko Tziopanos , Alex Heyer and Martin Hess
3D: Niko Tziopanos
Rotoscoping: Bea Wellenbrock
Producer: Andereas Coutsoumbelis
Executive Producer: Martin Woelke
