Writer/art director: Matt McConaghy
Media agency: n/a
Production company: Bravo Post Production
Director: David Masters
Post-production: The Mill
Audio Post-production: Fitzrovia Post Production
Jack Morton Worldwide has launched an online video in a bid to promote the new Nokia N900 mobile phone.
The film is set in a police investigation room where four industry experts, who are brainstorming what features the new model should have, are being monitored by people on the other side of the glass.
They throw in features including speed, connectivity, music and video storage capacity and the use of multiple applications.
Suddenly, one of the men starts to have a fit and begins spasming before morphing into different monstrous amalgamations of the features being discussed. He finally settles on one transformation, the new Nokia N900.
The work is available to view on YouTube.
