The Briefing

As a name, Solvay can be found around the world on universities, libraries, an Alpine refuge, theatres, streets – but also a complete village and even an asteroid. To celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary, Solvay asked DoubeDouble to celebrate a few.

Our Approach

The big challenge was to travel the globe on a small budget. So we sent a birthday cake on a fun tour of the world. The road movie visited the most notable of the Solvay locations, plus briefly met with some of the people that work there. Techniques: video, stop motion, hyperlapse, 3D images, motion design – all wrapped up in 3 hectic minutes.
