MIT MEET IN TOWN 2010

Ok I know: this is a borderline illustration work.It's more a illustration on photos process.I usually don't like people working with photos.
Still I want to share it on this blog.
It's my work for Meet in Town, a music festival in Rome.Xister involved me in the project as a creative director.
Honestly, I started working on it as a joke, but it did get dead serious in the end!The basic idea was to develop a 3 step communication process, a teaser, the evolution and the final images.
Each step is made of 3 images and three simple animations I made starting from the illustrations.
The concept is very easy: 3 huge mysterious objects are coming, one from the desert, one from the ocean and one from the sky (yes, it's a SENTAI tribute).Where do they come from and what are they coming for? 
Then I got this idea to use the main auditorium structures as alien vessels and it was very fun to develop.Hope that Renzo Piano will have fun as much as I did.
I hope that after the whole set of posters is out, somebody will think of the real auditorium as a GIANT action figure set of a sci fi movie rather than modern architecture. Maybe it will look like a fake repro of my spaceships.
Moreover: you are actually going INTO those BIG spaceships - to party.

These are the first images, including some previews for the next round of illustrations. Enjoy!
