The Movers of the World

August 2019 ––
The fine folks at Camp+King saw a previous piece of projection work from Mr. Munkowitz and wanted to push the idea much further for their client Uber Freight. They presented an intriguing group of scripts, in which they wanted to create an authentic story; a story that elicited emotions. One that was truthful and honest and used projected light to showcase how shipments are handled inside and outside the warehouse, and the emotional payoff when a customer has the ease of grabbing it off the shelf.

As a resonse, the team wanted the viewers to uncover the forward thinking secret to Uber’s process and the humanity behind the shipping industry that Uber is having a hand in molding. They wanted the audience to connect emotionally to Uber empowering shipping companies and carriers to flourish, and wanted to execute the campaign in a stylish and compelling way that brought the viewers into the world of Uber Freight and the vibrant results it brings.

The Concept

–– 02

The textured warehouse scenes depicted the “behind-the-scenes” and humanity of the shipper’s universe, and the projections were a glimpse of the life of a shipment, which was a journey that included beautiful imagery that is clear and literal, as well as abstract imagery that was more textural. Through the projections, we told their larger story – the story of travel – and the enjoyment, satisfaction and real relief that results from a product reaching its destination on time.

We juxtaposed the intimate inside-the-warehouse scenes with this projected imagery, which were embedded in the honest and very real textures of the environment for an attachment to the gritty, real-world setting. We made use of the all the detail and geometry of the warehouse to create interesting compositions, and to maximize the impact of the projections through striking perspective trick aligned with the camera’s position and vantage point.

When Things Go Right

–– 03

The When Things Go Right spot was a more character-focused film – featuring a narrative vignettte on our hero’s journey of preparing a shipment and seeing it through leaving the warehouse. It had a more intimate feel – a peek behind the curtain into the daily tasks and interactions required to do the job right. As a result, it has a warmer, more intimate and connected personal feeling than the Anthem campaign, which was the team’s goal from the outset.

The Concept

–– 04

Through projection, the life of the shipment facilitated by Uber’s Freight service make the non-warehouse environments come alive. We wanted to depict Uber’s innovative tools and network through light, representing the speed and efficiency and providing a portal to the life of the shipment and its journey. We show what happens outside the warehouse – how the network enables the product to travel to its destination – another peek behind the curtain. The light feels like a technical blanket - the all encompassing network - the invisible web made visible.
