Musikki Social Player

People come to us asking how the hell did we make our Facebook application. At a certain point, we decided to reveal how it “really” works. We got together a group of talented professionals and produced a short video that explains how it happens behind all those 0’s and 1’s. Ana Magalhaes made these fantastic illustrations and Bruno Almeida directed and animated the video in a superb way. Chris Murphy gave his voice to the project and we were lucky enough to convince New Orleans act Big History to let us use “All at once”, the title track of their first EP, to enrich the story. The result is a short animation that reveals that actually there’s nothing quite complicated about it. Because, you see, there’s this “Faceship”…
