Virgilio Villoresi "The Future We Want" (2012)

Virgilio Villoresi made The Future We Want as part of Rio+20, a sustainable development campaign from the United Nations. Using stop motion and a series of painted hands the 75 second short lightens up a somewhat preachy, earnest monologue with a witty and often striking series of animated images. Indeed I am unable to think of how better to lighten the heavy burden of aims set out in the brief. Thus we have a hand wiping away ink from a globe or passing card images through an iPad frame, plus a tasteful, bright array of colours.

Genius! Very creative and I loved the people who were hands.
