360 Space Explorer

Amazons boxes provide children (of all ages) with props for their active imaginations. We collaborated with Amazon to build an interactive multi-platform integrated campaign including a 360 degree looping animation all centered on their cardboard boxes. This 360 Space Explorer is Amazon’s first foray into experiential video.

The Process

The Process

We used a cardboard box as the source for our imaginative journey through space. Characters, locations and rocket ships, planets and asteroids were styled as though crafted from cardboard while actually modeled in 3D to look as though actually built by small hands. We took a whimsical approach to this journey and even included some easter eggs and respectful homages to space stories we grew up on. The 360 Space Explorer video is also accompanied by how-to videos we shot to aid in crafting dinosaurs of your own.
