Meow Wolf - Convergence station

Absolute

absolutepost.com/portfolio/convergence-station

The most brilliant BONKERS project we've ever had the pleasure of working on, Meow Wolf’s ‘Convergence Station’ is the epitome of surrealism. A tourism campaign designed to promote the entertainment company’s latest exhibit in Denver, the film comprises of vintage travel ads and shot footage directed by Andreas Nilsson, accompanied by music from Grammy/Oscar-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie. Viewers (or should we say passengers) witness bizarre sights as they experience inter-dimensional travel through an alien landscape, only made possible by otherworldly VFX created by Absolute.
