The Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) is an independent research organisation founded as a joint initiative of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
We were asked by IMBA to create an image film to emotionalise their research in the field of cerebral organoids. These organoids or ‘mini-brains’, are a driving force in cancer research as they allow researchers to replicate brain disease in the Petri dish. We filmed over 150 people of all ages to demonstrate that the research saves lives from all generations.
THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT THEY DELIVERED OUTSTANDING QUALITY WITH MINIMAL TURNAROUND TIMES WHILE FEEDBACK WAS ALWAYS IMPLEMENTED AT AN ASTONISHING PACE.
To bring in the new year in style, we created the epic organoid waltz. Inspired by the opening space sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey, we animated the dancing organoids from a single photograph. The animation was launched to the scientific community on new years eve to celebrate the magic, mystery and madness of discovery.
