The effect of the film is inherently moving, aided by a sweeping orchestral score and a delicate and deft hand in direction from Pekka.

Universal Music: Desperta

 WEB FILM   BRAZIL    June 18, 2019 12:55 Brazil, one woman is raped every ten minutes, according to the annual public security and violence report published by the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA).

Disney: The Bot Office

 INTERACTIVE   SINGAPORE    June 17, 2019 20:19 Disney studios, the key challenge is being a box office-driven business but remains a step removed from ticket sales, as that usually lies with exhibitors. To close this gap, we brought the box office into our digital placements. The idea was to combine Facebook Messenger API's with Popcorn's Movie Ticketing API's into a single chatbot interface, to create seamless experience through audiences to be able to engage with content and purchase tickets. Using a single hashtag, people could engage with Disney content on social with pre-set hashtag (e.g. #AvengersSG) in the comments to trigger Messenger, to guide them through the ticket booking process without ever leaving the Facebook platform. This trigger activated tickets purchase without leaving Disney's ecosystem, connecting content directly to box office results and raising overall media efficiency through greater engagement.
