For the launch of Manifesto NYC's website, I produced a series of vignettes that focused on the interesting characters we as New Yorkers might encounter on any given day. The series was executive produced by Michele Clarke (The Magic of Heineken / principal, Manifesto NYC), and directed and edited by Matt Akers (Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present, Iconoclasts). We set out to bring viewers to the site by spreading the vignettes across social media from Twitter to Facebook to Vimeo. The vignettes garnered thousands of views, and were featured on a number of blogs, including the popular NYC news site Gothamist. Morning Fingers also designed the logo animation for Manifesto NYC, which is used to identify their brands in all film and video.
