Mighty Nice created two films for an exhibition at The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar called “Breaking News? how the smartphone changed journalism”.
The first of the films is an introduction to the exhibition. Set on a huge vertical screen, the bold, fluid imagery directed by Michael Chen and designed by the incredible Haewon Shin, encourages the viewer to interrogate, engage and provide their thoughts on journalism and its role as an evolving expression of the human desire for knowledge and truth.
The second film is more of an experience set over twelve screens, mid way through the exhibition. Graphic, simple animation tells a complex story that unfolds from the centre screen and expands and spreads in a similar way to news and information.
