Lexus Intergalactic Test Drive

Back to projects

When a brief starts with “we want to send an invitation into deep space” you know you’re in for a wild ride! This project for Lexus and MIB: International took us around Australia to tell the story of how a team of scientists captured the roar of an engine, encoded it using a supercomputer, before reengineering the Southern Hemisphere’s largest radio telescope to blast it into space

From building a powerful drone-light, to figuring out how to illuminate a mile of telescope in the dead of night, we had a great time working on this one with the mavericks over at M&C Saatchi.
